How to Pick the Perfect Pair Of Sunglasses

This summer is going to be amazing! The country is slowly opening up around us, we have more and more freedom to spend time with the people who we’ve missed throughout the winter, patios are open, and many of us are looking forward to just being outside in the sun. Whether your summer plans are to lay on a beach for hours or to simply walk to work in the sun, a perfect pair of sunglasses is an absolute must.

Mirrored Vs. Polarized
When looking for the perfect sunglasses, the final choice is between mirrored lenses and polarized lenses, and the truth is they are both a great choice when it comes to eye protection.

Mirrored sunglass lenses are made with a coating that easily reflects light and reduces glare significantly; they also have the iconic mirrored look on the outside of the lens. Polarized sunglasses only allow light to come in through one direction, protecting the wearer’s eyes from the sun and fatigue, and often feature a brown or grey gradient within the lens itself.

Both mirrored and polarized lenses are great options, and it really comes down to your personal vision preference and how you like to express yourself!
