Sunglasses are indispensable fashion accessory as they do not only complement your fall styling, but they are also necessary to protect your eyes from the autumn sunshine.
The sun sends rays on earth that are invisible to our eyes – Infrared (IR), thermal and short-wave ultraviolet radiation (UV). On the way to Earth the ozone layer serves as a barrier to harmful UV radiation. Unfortunately, it is becoming thinner and thinner while ozone holes are getting bigger and bigger each year. There are three types of UV radiation: UV-C, which is not dangerous to the human eye, while UV-B and UV-A impair the health of our eyes.
When buying sunglasses, special attention should be paid to the degree of protection they offer. The mere darkened lenses are simply not enough. If you wear tinted sunglasses without ultraviolet filters the pupils in the eye adapt to the reduced light intensity and spread. Generally, the emphasis must be put on protecting the eyes.Customers are increasingly looking for sunglasses with polarizing filters that along with the standard protection have also glare protection. Its advisable to wear sunglasses during the sunny day until dusk, when sunglasses should be avoided because they reduce the visibility.
