MOST PEOPLE KNOW THE Sun's RAYS ARE BAD FOR OUR SKIN. BUT DID YOU KNOW THEY’RE JUST AS BAD FOR OUR EYES?
No matter what type of sports you prefer while you're outdoors; camping, hunting, fishing, biking, or hiking, you'll want to make sure you have a great pair of polarized sunglasses or photochromic sunglasses to protect your eyes on those sunny days. Polarized sunglasses help to filter out glare from an outdoor environment that can reflect and create problems with your vision. Some of these sunglasses are also great at both protecting your eyes from the sun and glare as well as making you look great. Seeing better while looking great are two excellent benefits for outdoors enthusiasts who enjoy a wide variety of adventures.
Sunglasses are essential in winter, especially if you are taking part in winter sports or driving a vehicle. Not only should you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays, but having the right eyewear will make you safer on the roads and give you better visual clarity outdoors.
With the changeable winter climate and temperamental skies, variable tint lenses or ‘photochromic’ lenses make a great option. Designed to adapt to changing light conditions, they are ideal for the ever-changing weather and they will see you through to summer too.
POLARIZED LENSES: VS. PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES: WHICH ONES ARE BEST?
As a short crash course on polarized lenses vs. photochromic lenses, polarized lenses block out the reflection, photochromic lenses automatically adjust the level of tint to suit the level of light you’re in. However, both types of lenses are highly beneficial and can be used in various situations from everyday wear to sporting events, on mountains, in lakes, you name it.
It all comes down to what you want to receive from your eyewear. However, if you are using your sunglasses for a specific event or hobby, such as running marathons, skiing or fishing, you may find that one will benefit you more than the other. For example, reducing glares will come to you as a huge benefit when skiing or fishing, whereas photochromic lenses are the better option for everyday wear, driving, participating in sports, running long marathons, etc.
