UV light: How to find the perfect sunglasses

In the meantime, sunglasses have of course become part of the fashionable standard equipment when the sun is shining and the weather is nice. However, the focus should not be on the design or look of the sunglasses, but on protection of the eyes. Because eyes are our most important sense organs, through them we receive the most sensory impressions.

Why is sunlight harmful to the eyes?

Sunlight contains ultraviolet light. Light and especially UV light can damage all structures of the eye: on the cornea it can lead to flashes, the lens can become cloudy (cataract) and the point of sharpest vision, the macula, can wear out prematurely (macular degeneration).

What is really important about sun glasses?

Good sunglasses are said to offer complete UV protection. Therefore, in addition to the CE seal of approval, the designation “UV 100%” or “UV 400” must also be noted. Don’t be fooled: the degree of tint says nothing about the level of UV protection. Deep-tinted glasses, for example, can only offer inadequate protection, while lighter glasses guarantee complete protection. The stronger the tint, the better the glare protection, but the lower the light transmission.
Sun glasses with polarized filters are suitable for preventing reflections and reflections from buildings, streets and water surfaces: disturbing light reflections are masked out, contrasts are improved and colors are perceived more intensely.

The best sunglasses for you!

Another purchase criterion is the ideal fit. You should feel comfortable with the glasses all around, they must not push, sit too tight or even slide. Individually adjustable glasses frames enable a perfect fit. The required degree of tinting of the glasses is determined by the weather: the sunnier, the darker they should be tinted. Models with interchangeable lenses in different tinting levels make the selection easier and ensure optimal sun protection in different lighting conditions. Sunglasses can usually be easily worn over contact lenses. People who suffer from dry eyes, have a higher astigmatism or have difficulty tolerating contact lenses for other reasons need a different solution if they do not want to wear sunglasses with corrective lenses.
At EuroEyes we give you back your sharp vision with laser eye or lens surgery. And in doing so, we extend the choice of suitable sunglasses for more comfort and safety from the sun.
