Our Top 4 Tips For Choosing Sunglasses

Sunglasses are one of the ultimate fashion accessories and the favourite at Cazinc.  When I was travelling in Italy, I didn't buy many items but purchased three pairs of fabulous sunglasses.

Sunnies are great in helping you to create your unique image.   They are an easy way to hide a million sins when you are tired or hungover, they can lift an outfit instantly and sunglasses can give you attitude!

Like me, you can be a lover of "Jackie O" style of large sunglasses, (which my family often call me fearless fly), the "John Lennon" round shape, or stick with regular style sunnies.  What exact style you choose depends on your taste, age and the shape of your face.  There are many styles which you can select.

No matter what style of sunglasses you are thinking of buying, and let's face it, to most of us, the selection is all about the look, style and fashion, but it is crucial that you end up choosing the best possible quality pair.

Being educated by what makes a quality pair of sunglasses is very important when you are searching for your next pair of sunglasses. Keep these tips in mind when you are browsing.

Here are our top four tips for choosing sunglasses:

1. Protection from UV

One major contributor to eye disease is ultraviolet radiation. This is why it is important to choose a pair of sunglasses that protect you from the harmful effect of UV. Just because your glasses have a dark tint doesn't mean that you are protect from UV. Make sure you check the sunglasses UV rating.

2. What the Sunglasses Are Made From

Generally speaking the heavier the sunglasses the higher quality they will be. You want to ensure that the material that they are made from will last a long time and be able to resist the constant knocks that sunglasses typically take.

3. Different Tints

Tints are the colors that are applied to sunglasses lenses to help reduce the light that makes contact with the eyes. The particular shade you choose is up to your taste. However, different tints will have a different effect on the perceived brightness and glare and will distort colour differently.

As an example, grey tints reduce glare and don't distort the colour. On the other hand, yellows lens will change colour but sharpen your perceived view.

4. To Polarise or Not to Polarise?

Sunglasses that are polarised will reduce the glare of the light which bounces off roads and water. These are typically preferred by people who drive on the road a lot during the day or boat on the water. If you work or play near a lot of flat surfaces, you may wish to investigate using polarised sunglasses.
