To fully enjoy the summer days, it is important to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. Sunglasses are a real fashion accessory, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor activities while keeping UV rays at bay.
How to choose the right sunglasses?
The protection index
The very first criterion to take into account to find the right pair of sunglasses is the protection index. More important than the aesthetic aspect, it is an essential factor for choosing sunglasses. Because the sun’s rays are harmful and the quality of filtration is essential, it is important to choose lenses that effectively protect our eyes.
There are 4 categories of protection:
|0||Comfort||80 à 100%|
|1||Low light||43 à 80%|
|2||Medium brightness||18 to 43%|
|3||High brightness||8 to 18%|
|4||Exceptional brightness and glare
(water and winter sports)
|3 to 8%|
Photochromic lenses have the particularity of adapting to changing light conditions. The advantage of this type of lens is that it provides lasting UV protection and excellent vision in all weathers, from bad weather to bright sunshine. So you can enjoy your outdoor activities with a lens that goes from category 1 to 3 in a matter of seconds.
The polarised lens has been designed to significantly reduce glare and provide excellent visual comfort. Very popular for road, water and board sports, it blocks the reflection of light and optimises contrasts. For water and winter sports, polarised sunglasses offer high definition vision while reducing glare and providing effective protection from harmful UV rays.
Finally, Oakley’s Prizm lens is a highly advanced and innovative technology. Developed for sports, it increases contrast in order to better anticipate relief and the environment. Whether it’s golf, cycling or board sports, Prizm lenses reduce glare and refine terrain perception for better reaction and colour recognition.
More than just an accessory for your outdoor escapades, sunglasses are also a part of our wardrobe that we match with our outfits.
