Choosing your Beach Sunglasses

If you are hitting the beach we would recommend you opt for sunglasses that come with a larger lens. The bigger the lens, the better the shade, and protection. But it all boils down to your choice.

Opt for sunglasses that are comfortable and appropriate for where you’re going to. Make sure the frame is not too tight but comfortable. Also, pick sunglasses that has 100 per cent polarised lenses for extra protection from the glare of the sun.

You’ve probably come across polarised lenses with colour gradients or tints, such as green, yellow or blue. They’re not just for adding to your looks, tints can provide extra protection from overhead sunlight when driving, while still allowing for enough light to filter through the bottom so that you can see where you’re going. Different tint colours are suitable for different environments. Yellows are great for foggy or low light conditions, while browns are suitable for the sunny weather.
