You shouldn’t use price to determine the quality of the sunglasses, as many of the higher priced brands cost more because of fashion, not function. Here is a quick quick guide that will help you buy the efficient sunglasses:

  • Avoid sunglasses that say “absorbs UV.” Look for a label that says 99-100 percent UV absorption or UV 400.
  • Polarized lenses help cut glare allowing for crisper vision, but they do not add sun protection.
  • Darker lens colors don’t mean better sun protection. The UV protectant added to lenses is clear; even grey, green, yellow or rose lenses can offer adequate UV protection.
  • Sunglasses made from plastic leads to distorted vision when you look to the right or left. Never buy them.
  • Larger frames shield more UV rays than smaller ones.
