With a wide variety of lens options available, you can customize sunglasses to meet your visual, protection, performance, and comfort needs.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sun wear provides 100 percent UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems such as cataracts and retinal damage that can be caused by UV radiation.
Glare can make it difficult to see objects clearly by washing out colors and details. Polarized lenses are effective at reducing glare. Looking at the landscape with polarized lenses, you’ll notice the colors are deeper, richer, and bolder, the details are clearer and more distinct. Polarized lenses also help reduce squinting, which, in turn, reduces eye fatigue, tension and eyestrain. Polarized lenses are a must for anyone who works or plays near bodies of water as they cut the glare that comes off the water.
There are a variety of different lens colors available as well.
- Standard gray is great for bright, sunny days.
- Brown lenses are wonderful for cloudy days that produce a lot of glare.
- Red or rose lenses provide more depth or contrast.
- Yellow lenses are great for driving or shooting sports.
