Mar 8, 2021, 11:41 AM by Kayla Baugh

Sunnier, warmer days are ahead! Which means it's a great time to find sunglasses that not only suit you, but make it easier to see while you’re driving. Believe it or not, the right pair of sunglasses can even help prevent a visibility-related accident. Take a look at our tips for finding the perfect pair this spring.

Choosing Tint

When it comes to picking a tint, there are a few things that you should keep in mind. Brown, amber and grey all help absorb light, so they’re good choices for sunglasses that you’ll be using in the car.  An anti-reflective coating will help improve visibility because it reduces glare and allows more light to be transmitted through the lens.

UV Protection

UV protection is very important, and it should be a priority while shopping for a new pair of spring and summer specs. Protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays will keep you from developing damage in your cornea, lens and other areas of your eye. Try to find glasses that offer 100% UV protection.

Polarized Glasses

Polarized lenses are a popular choice, because they help reduce glare while improving clarity and contrast. They’re perfect for blocking glare from water on the road, other vehicles, and the buildings that surround you while driving. 

Best Glasses for Your Facial Shape

  • Square Face Shape: Go for the opposite shape to balance out your features. Oval and round frames are a great choice for you.

  • Round Face Shape: Rectangular and square frames will balance your features. Oversized glasses and aviators are also good picks for you.

  • Oval Face Shape: Lucky for you! Most frames work well with this facial shape, so feel free to check out a variety of square, geometric and round sunglasses.

  • Diamond Face Shape: Cat-eye, round and oval-shaped frames will complement your face shape! Have fun with it.
