How to choose sunglasses and sports sunglasses?

Eye protection from UV radiation is important at any time of the year. The sun is stronger in summer, but it is dangerous in winter as well. Its rays can cause inconvenience and reduce the perfection of your eyesight. Use our advice to make the right pick of glasses and you will be happy with them. Follow these steps:en

1. 100% UV protection and sunglasses category:

The most important factor is 100% UV protection, which can handle a wavelength of 400 nm. The sunglasses category (S0 - S4) determines the light transmission. Often associated with a certain color, darker transmits less light. The less % of light it transmits, the sharper the sun it can withstand.

S0:

For evening activities and sports in heavily cloudy weather, select the S0 category. Protects eyes from wind and insects, transmits most light.

S1 – S2:

Slightly colored lenses and orange brightening lenses will make your stay outside more enjoyable when it is partly cloudy.

 S3:

Choose a darker color or mirror lenses for sunny weather. They transmit less light, so your lens doesn't strain.

S4:

The higher you are, the stronger the sun. Dark lenses with low light transmittance protect your eyes at the top of mountains or glaciers.
