Sun glasses | Sarasota, Bradenton, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, TampaBefore you walk into your local bargain store for a pair of sunglasses, you need to know that not all sunglasses are the same. While they offer a fair amount of UV protection to prevent the sun’s radiation from damaging your eyes, sunglasses also offer additional benefits.

How To Choose The Right Sunglasses

Certain sunglasses will reduce visible light, others reduce glare while the appeal of some is durability or that they’re impact resistance. The type of eyewear you want will be based on what you are going to be doing while wearing them. Check out the different terms for lenses that you will see in sunglass descriptions.

  • Polycarbonate lenses: These lenses are suited for people involved in dangerous activities or sports such as skiing, mountain climbing and surfing. They offer impact resistance to make them harder to break
  • Polarized lenses: These lenses reduce the amount of reflected glare coming off of certain surfaces such as water, snow or windshields
  • Blue-Light Blocking lenses: Blue-light blocking lenses will reduce the amount of blue light around you, making it easier to see distant objects. Many of these lenses are tinted in an amber or gray color. Gray lenses are better suited for driving so you can distinguish traffic light colors
