AP9 ShoppingEssentials reminds members that eye protection is important no matter the season. Here’s a guide to help find the right look at the right price.
It’s more than the eyes.
Face shape plays a big role in finding the right pair of shades. People with heart-shaped faces should look for sunglasses that are wider at the bottom. Oval-faced individuals need horizontal lines to minimize the length of their faces. Frames with a curved or round look are best for faces with a square shape.
Fashion or function?
Filters that reduce glare, increase contrast and even improve depth perception are available. These features are convenient for activities like fishing, beach activities and long drives. When shopping, consider sports or activities that make polarized or mirrored sunglasses a must.
A little practicality never hurts.
The material used in frames can play a role in cost and durability. For shades that are meant to make a fashion statement, simple plastic or wire frames are fine. But for more strength – and probably a longer lifespan – metal or lightweight composite frames are preferred. Name brand sunglasses may have features like tension springs, instead of screws, that connect the arms to the face for increased durability.
Check out the special effects.
When investing in a more expensive pair of sunglasses, it may be worthwhile to look for scratch-resistant coatings, anti-reflective and even waterproof features. These may add to the cost but may improve the functionality. Varying degrees of lens tinting are available. Make sure that those shades fully block out both UV-A and UV-B rays, which can cause serious eye problems.
These eyewear tips are presented by AP9 Shopping Essentials, the gateway members use to saving money on luggage, home electronics, gifts, crafts, toys and much more -- every time they shop. Have a happy and safe summer, concludes AP9 ShoppingEssentials!
