Whether you’re looking for stylish standard sunglasses or a perfect prescription pair, protecting your eyes from both UVA and UVB rays is vital. Another important consideration is how much coverage the glasses offer. Even if the lenses protect you from harmful UV, if they do not fit well enough to effectively stop unfiltered light from reaching your eyes, they are not performing properly.
The colour of your sunglasses lenses has a subtle effect on your vision.
Grey, smoke and grey-green tinted lenses are great for bright sunny days and are the most common lens colour you’ll find. They are dark enough to provide sufficient protection from the effects of glare, but are still light enough to ensure that your vision is not impaired.
Brown shades work very well to block the blue light you’d find on a cloudy day. They can improve both depth perception and contrast, making them a good all-rounder in changeable weather conditions.

Children’s eyes absorb up to three times more UV than adults’ and need extra special protection. As kids love to play outdoors it’s even more important to protect young eyes to reduce the risk of cataracts and macula degeneration in later life.
