Hot, hot heat and beautiful sunshine require some sun savvy!
To protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation, sunglasses should block 100 percent of UV rays and also absorb most HEV rays.
Frames with a close-fitting wrap around style will limit how much sunlight reaches your eyes from above the periphery of your sunglass lenses. The more coverage the sunglasses provide, the less risk of sun damage and loss of eye sight…and really who wants to squint all day?
Depending on your outdoor activities, you may want to consider performance sunglasses or sport sunglasses.
For HEV protection, look for sunglasses that block a significant amount of blue light. These lenses will be bronze, copper, or a reddish-brown.
Just a side note- wrap around sunglasses are gold for preventing deep crows feet! So get some savvy shades and enjoy the sunshine!
