Finding the Perfect Pair of Best Polarized Sunglasses for Protection

Updated on December 21, 2013

Perfect Pair of UV Sunglasses for Protection


Sunglasses Can Be Sassy

I love to accessorize with my sunglasses and I am not the only person that makes the decision to do this. Even though I like to select my sunglasses to give a little bit of style to my outfit, they do have a much larger purpose. In fact, they are necessary to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun. I wanted to find a way to protect my eyes so I decided that I needed to find the best polarized sunglasses. Once I realized that my eyes could become sunburnt I knew that I needed protection and that is why I made the decision to purchase these sunglasses.

When I started my search for the best polarized sunglasses I found out that there are also many of these to select from as well. I was really overwhelmed and I did not know which pair I needed, or which ones would be the best for me. If you are worried that you will be in the same situation you will want to think about some of the following tips to help you make your final decision.

Always start my making sure that the glasses you are looking at have 100 percent UV-A rays. It will also be important to make sure that they have the same UV-B protection. It is also interesting to know that not all glasses that have a UV symbol on them will have UV protection. That is why it is always best to purchase your polarized sunglasses from an ophthalmologist. This will guarantee that you are going to get the protection that you need.

In the past, when I would purchase sunglasses I thought that the darker the lens the better they were. I found out that this is not the case at all. In fact, it has been recommended that you purchase lenses that are green, grey or brown. The experts have reported that these will be the best when it comes to decreasing the harmful effects of the sun.


The best polarized sunglasses for your needs will often depend on when you are going to be wearing them, and where you will be wearing them to. Here are some things that you should consider when you are looking for your new sunglasses.

First off, if you are like me, you will find blue blocking lenses. These will look yellowish or even orange when you look at them. Objects are going to look a lot clearer when you wear these but it is important to know that it can be difficult to differentiate between the hues in traffic lights when you are wearing these.

Polarized glasses will be wonderful for those that want to be out on the water. They slant the light so that you are not dealing with continual glare. They have also been found to help your eyes so that they do not become tired as quickly as they might if you were not wearing them.


Transitional lenses have also become very popular. Wearing these will help to decrease glare and they will also help keep things clear. Those that make the decision to wear these glasses should keep in mind that they will take some time to adjust from one type of light setting to another. This means that it can be hard to see when you first enter a room that does not have a lot of light in it.

If you are like me you will want to keep your style while you are selecting polarized sunglasses. The good news is that you will not have to give up style for protection. There are a number of glasses out there that will certainly help you do both. I love the cat eye sunglasses and they never seem to go out of style for someone that wants to be trendy. Another option would be the aviator sunglasses if you want to feel like a movie star.
