Summer is in full swing, in this beautiful month of September. The summer of idleness and holidays at the foot of the beaches and coconut palms! But beware, let the joys of idleness not make you forget the danger of solar radiation and its harmful effects on the visual organ. Here are 7 tips to effectively protect yourself from the summer sun.
Investing in quality sunglasses
To protect the eyes from UV rays, it is advisable to wear sunglasses. But not just any sunglasses! Good sun shields are distinguished by four essential criteria.
When buying a sunglass, make sure that the lenses allow only a minimum amount of solar radiation through. The ideal would be optimal filtration, if you are planning a stay in the southern Mediterranean countries where the sun is at its peak. Many corrective and non-corrective glasses will be able to satisfy this requirement. Thus, you will spend a magical stay in the sun without worrying about your vision.
The anti-reflective capacity
A good telescope does not create those annoying reflections that prevent you from seeing the objects around you. Prefer lenses that have undergone an anti-reflection test.
The shape of the frame
The curvature of the lenses also influences the light output. Prefer concentric glasses, with curved or rounded lines, which provide optimum protection for the retina.
The colour of the lenses
Some colours increase visual acuity. Brown faithfully reproduces contrasts, as do grey and grey-green. Blue lenses, on the other hand, are not suitable for summer brightness.
Sunglasses for drivers
Do not part with it
When the sun hits our eyes in an intense and brutal way, it is difficult to discern the environmental data of the road! To remedy this, it is important to wear sunglasses. It is the faithful companion of motorists in love with vintage cars.
Choosing the right category
The intensity of the lenses varies on a scale of 1 to 4. Level 3 lenses seem to be the best choice to protect against the heat of the summer sun. Tint 4 is better, but it is not suitable for driving on the road if it is too dark. Lower grade lenses provide poor protection for the driver’s eyes in contact with the sun.
Switching to polarized glasses
To ride safely, nothing beats polar lenses. They make shades and colours vibrate while neutralizing annoying reflections on your windshield.
