We discussed fashion trends in sunglass optics with an ophthalmologist and find out whether it is dangerous to look at the world through rose-colored glasses, who would prefer not to “aviators” and why you need the lens without a diopter. The most fashionable sunglasses of the season through the eyes of the candidate of medical Sciences, head of the ophthalmic Department of the clinic “K+31” Abramov Sergei Igorevich:
Sunglasses with pink lenses improve contrast by blocking blue light, so are suitable for cloudy days. They distort the real picture and totally unsuitable to wear them in bright sunlight, but when working at the computer and watching TV is simply irreplaceable, as they reduce eye strain.
Speaking about colored contact lenses generally, ophthalmologists agree that a person most comfortable with glasses with brown and dark green filters. They have the ability to neutralize the greatest number of the harmful rays.

From a medical point of view they are absolutely harmless and this summer is in the collections of many famous designers. That’s just the high price does not guarantee quality. Usually, the price determines the name of the brand and the relevance of the model, and the frames and lenses are not too affect the cost.

These glasses are recommended to use in cloudy days, because they, like sunglasses with pink lenses that block the blue spectrum of light and increase image contrast. No wonder the police use sunglasses with yellow lenses for target practice — shot accuracy in these is much higher. In real life they are widely used motorists for driving in poor visibility conditions. But in bright sunlight they are, unfortunately, ineffective.

Socket “cat ears”
Such fine points will be combined with an office outfit. Most importantly, they were a comfortable fit, and they do not move out from the nose. Otherwise no restrictions.

The design of the spectacle frame does not in any way affect the level of eye protection and still should not play a decisive role in the selection. Better to start from the quality of lenses. They are not worth saving. So if we are talking about points for 200 rubles and you acquire them only as a fashion accessory from such a purchase is better to refuse — it is unlikely that they will be a good block ultraviolet rays.

Clear lens without diopters
From a medical point of view glasses with clear lenses with no lenses are absolutely harmless, so fulfill rather the function of the accessory. But wearing such on an ongoing basis doctors do not recommend. The fact that they limit the field of view, which you may soon feel worse: to feel a headache, dizziness…
Note the clear lens with protection from negative influence of electromagnetic radiation of the computer monitor. It is believed that this is a marketing ploy, but no one will deny that these glasses really reduce eye strain and provide them with protection.

Lenses of unusual shape
The shape of the lenses has no influence on the level of burden on the eyes, so choose a particular model based solely on their style preferences.

Classic black glass
If we are talking about summer vacation on the sea or on the slopes sneineh, to protect the retina these glasses perfect. Better them only combined black and brown glass. Such is our biathletes at the Olympic games. Goggles should close the eye area and enough to fit snugly to the face.
What to lenses, I recommend to choose them with protection level 3 or 4 (usually marked on the shackle). If you are in the middle latitudes, and the degree of protection from 1 to 3. In areas where Sunny days falls a little, you can restrict the level of protection from 0 or 1.

Glasses-“aviators” were first developed by the American company Baush & Lomb for military pilots from the sun during the Second world war. From a medical point of view, their shape is ideal for protecting the eye area, so they are very good not only filter harmful ultraviolet rays, but also protect the sensitive skin in the eye area.
Please note: if your face has a classic oval shape, the “aviators” are shown only in wide plastic frame. It will help visually slightly rounded.

And all-taki on the first place when choosing sunglasses should stand UV protection of your eyes. Ideally, to give preference to the points labeled UV 400 (100% protection from UV radiation). They are better than others protect the retina from the sun.
