Sunglasses are a fun accessory and are always in style. There are many designers offering different types of sunglasses, leaving customers with endless options. Sunglasses range from inexpensive to high-end, and everything in between.
How do you distinguish women's sunglasses from men's?
Men's glasses usually have a wider bridge than women's. Women's styles tend to be larger and curvier. Women's sunglasses may have a more feminine style to them. They sometimes have decorative aspects, whereas sunglasses for men tend to be plainer. There are also unisex styles, and these are often specified by the manufacturer.
What should a woman keep in mind when choosing sunglasses?
In order to find a pair of sunglasses that are right for you, take into consideration the shape of your face. The following is a list of sunglass styles for different face shapes:
- Round Shaped Face - Round, aviator, or shield style glasses.
- Oval Shaped Face - Aviator, retro, or oversized glasses.
- Heart Shaped Face - Sport, retro square, or cat-eye glasses.
- Square Shaped Face - Shield, aviator, or round style glasses
Can sunglasses have prescription lenses?
Sunglasses can be made with corrective lenses for those who need them. Some models are available with lenses that start out clear without the rays of the sun and become tinted when exposed to sunshine. Almost any lens prescription can be made into sunglasses. This is extremely convenient for those who need to wear glasses to correct a vision problem.
What are polarized lenses?
Polarized lenses are sunglass lenses that reduce glare. They are coated with a special film for this purpose. They are beneficial to the wearer since they protect the eyes from harmful UV rays of the sun. Glare can distort view, the perception of depth, and perception of color. Glare can be dangerous when driving.
How are polarized lenses different from regular lenses?
Regular sunglasses reduce the amount of light that comes through both vertically and horizontally. Rather than just reducing light, polarized lenses are designed to absorb the sun's rays that come through horizontally. Vertical rays can still pass through. By allowing light to travel in one direction only, there is no glare, and objects appear clearer. Sunglass wearers should keep in mind that polarized lenses are different from tinted lenses as well. While tinted lenses reduce brightness, they still allow light to enter vertically and horizontally, causing glare.
