We all take great care of our skin in the sun but few realize how important it is to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of UV.
When the sun is low in the sky there is no natural protection afforded by your brow and so it is more important to wear UV protection.
When considering sunglasses, if we think beyond “does it look good?” or “does it feel comfortable?” we might ask “does it protect me against UV?”. People can often think that a more expensive pair will protect more, and there may be reasons why it might to do with the fit.
All sunglasses sold in the store are CE certified which means that they will give UV protection up to 380nm. Some like the Polaroid range will gives full UV protection up to 400nm.
