Looking for a New Pair of Sunglasses? Check Out These Ideas for an Upgrade

If you’re looking to treat yourself (or a loved one) to a new pair of sunglasses, that’s great. But, instead of getting another pair of average sunglasses, consider giving your frames an upgrade. Glasses technology has come a long way and exciting new developments are being made all the time. So, it’s time you took advantage of this. Here we have compiled a list of sunglasses options for you to consider, that are that little bit more special.

Polarized Lenses

A simple but effective lens upgrade, polarized sunglasses from Oakley are brilliant for reducing glare and potential eye strain. If you’re outdoorsy and are often in snowy environments, or near open water, then this type of lens can eliminate the threat of blinding glare. Give your eyes a break with the protective qualities polarization offers – block out 100% of UVA and UVB rays. 

Smart Glasses

One of the newest crazes on the market currently is ‘smart glasses’, available as eyeglasses or sunglasses. They really are fascinating, and may become a game changer for glasses wearers. Features can include audio for music and calls, as well as cameras to take images and videos via your frames. Smart glasses are essentially a portable Alexa that you wear on your face. There are many different versions emerging from leading brands, so it will be interesting to see how these develop over the coming years. Will they catch on or not? Either way, they definitely add an ‘edge’ to your average sunglasses, so why not try something different and give them a go.  

Transition Lenses

If you wear glasses for vision correction, then don’t make the mistake of buying two separate pairs – eyeglasses for everyday vision, then sunglasses for sun protection. Get yourself photochromic lenses that can adapt to the lighting in your environment. With these, if you’re exposed to sunlight, the lenses recognise this and darken to protect your eyes. Likewise, if you are indoors, away from sunlight, the lenses will be clear for you to see clearly. Clever, right? Two purposes, one set of frames. Never feel the need to carry both sunglasses and eyeglasses with you again. 

Blue Light Blocking Lenses

Now these aren’t sunglasses but we thought we would add one extra idea for the everyday glasses-wearers out there. If you’re often exposed to screens, such as laptops or mobile phones, then you need to consider blue light blocking lenses. The purpose of these lenses is to reduce eyestrain and eye damage, as well as negatively impacted sleep due to extended screen time. So, if you work in an office on the computer all day, or simply spend a lot of time in front of the TV before bed, then blue light-blocking lenses could be the answer to your problems. Try them out and see if you get a better night of sleep afterwards. To conclude, if you’re looking for a pair of new sunglasses (or glasses) then give these different options listed here some serious thought. They could really enhance your life
