Picking High Performance Lenses. Are Your Lenses Up to Scratch?

The internet is jam packed with articles to help you choose the right frames for your sunglasses. Do you have the right kind of sunglasses for your face shape? Are your frames the right colour, the right pattern, the right material?

We often spend so much time worrying about the style of our sunglasses that we forget about their substance: and that means choosing the right lenses. High performance sunglasses lenses are essential for ensuring that your shades are fit for purpose and feel as good as they look. With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about picking the right high performance sunglasses lenses for you:

Best Lenses For Driving

If you’re looking for lenses to wear behind the wheel then pink, blue and green lenses are best avoided no matter how good they look! This is because lenses these colours make red lights difficult to spot, which could seriously impair your driving.

Instead opt for colour-neutral lens shades, such as grey and brown, and if it’s within your budget then always opt for polarisation. We love Ray Ban Polarised men’s sunglasses which are as stylish as they are practical, and always of the highest quality. Because Ray Ban’s were originally designed for pilots, their high-end polarisation is ideal for long distance drivers, and will make a significant difference in terms of safety and overall performance.

Benefits of Polarisation

When it comes to choosing the right high-performance lenses for you, you really can’t get better than polarised lenses. Polarized lenses are coated with a special chemical film that helps reduce the amount of glare from the sun that you will be exposed to. The more glare you can neutralise, the easier you will find it to view objects at any distance, which is why polarisation is such a popular choice. Polarisation will also help to reduce the harmful (and potentially cancer-causing) effects of UV light on the sensitive skin around your eyes.

Want polarisation but not sure where to start? Looking for a high quality heritage brand you can really trust? Ray Ban Polarised women’s sunglasses are the best lenses on the market, whilst also offering a distinctive and fashion-forward frame that will really help you to stand out from the crowd.

Best Lenses For Sports

If you’re looking for the best high performances lenses for sport then polarisation is definitely essential. However the advances in lens technology have been so significant in recent years that athletes can now also invest in photochromic sunglasses that’s lenses will change their tint to suit changing light conditions. You can also choose lenses with anti-fog capabilities, helping to ensure your vision remains clear if you work up a sweat whilst you’re working out.

Maui Jim men’s sunglasses and Maui Jim women’s sunglasses are both available with polarised lenses and photochromic sunglasses, whilst also being some of the most popular high fashion frames available on the market right now. If you’re looking for sunglasses that are the whole package of high performance lens and perfectly fashion-forward frame then these are the perfect pick.
