Best Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a popular accessory during the summer. However, sunglasses offer far more than a simple complement to your wardrobe. Sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from the sun all year. Giant Optical in Hempstead, NY, shares a few things you should consider. 

Importance of UV Protection

Sunglasses' primary purpose is to protect the eye from the sun's harmful rays. Therefore, UV protection must be a priority when choosing the best sunglasses. Look for sunglasses with lenses labeled 100% protection against UVA and UVB.

Understanding that darker lenses do not necessarily equate to proper UV protection is essential. Therefore, look for the sunglasses' label to ensure you’re adequately protected from UV rays.

Choose Your Frames

There are different types of frames available at your local optical shop. Your face shape will play a role in how the sunglasses fit on your face and look. Therefore, you should determine your face shape and find frames best suited for that shape.

Round faces do well with vintage cat-eye frames or square-shaped sunglasses. Square faces need structures that soften the angles of the face, such as aviators or rounded edges. Heart-shaped faces need frames similar to the shape of the face, such as cat-eye frames with a thick brow. An oval face can work well with any facial structure.

Children Need Sunglasses

Children need sunglasses with proper UV protection more than adults because they are exposed to more sun each year. This increased exposure increases the risk of UV light-related eye damage. In addition, children’s eyes are still developing and maturing, and they cannot filter UV rays like adult eyes.

Visit a Hempstead, NY, Optician

If you’re uncertain about the sunglasses you should buy, consult with an optometrist at Giant Optical in Hempstead, NY. An eye doctor can help you choose the best sunglasses for your face shape, activity level, and budget while ensuring they can provide sufficient UV protection.
