Sunglasses help you maintain vision in bright conditions, so you can keep your eye on the ball or get a better glimpse of your game in the field. They can be an important accessory for your fitness regimen, too. Sunglasses reduce headaches and eyestrain, shield you from dust and debris, and minimize uncomfortable glare.
UV radiation is often higher in the summer than other times of the year, so be sure to have a pair of quality sunglasses ready when the weather turns warm. Keep in mind that glass lenses provide the best visual acuity, minimizing distortion and scratching. Polycarbonate and acrylic lenses are very resistant to impact—so they’re a great choice for contact sports. Keep in mind that color counts, too:
- Gray lenses are great for day-to-day use. Gray lenses transmit an array of colors from the spectrum for minimal distortion. Gray lenses are ideal for bright, sunny days and open water fishing.
- Copper is a high-contrast tint that soothes the eyes. This hue absorbs blue light to heighten visual acuity and boost contrast.
- Brown provides optimal tint for a variety of fishing conditions. Brown tints provide excellent contrast and true color perception. Choose brown for shallow water streams and flats fishing in medium to bright light.
- Amber lenses are ideal in low-light conditions, including first and last light or heavily overcast skies.
Always consult product information when selecting your new sunglasses. There you will find specifics on the percentage of UVA, UVB and UVC protection, as well as details on materials, fit and technologies.
Sunglasses are an iconic accessory, so find a pair that matches your personal sense of style. Choose from classic wayfarers, square-shaped sunglasses or sleek oval-shaped lenses. Some pairs come with adjustable frames and nose pads, which provide a better grip.
