The importance of buying quality sunglasses online
Although the majority of our readers are aware of the risks that can be run by recklessly exposing themselves to the sun’s rays in the hottest hours and that using the right sunscreen is a correct and healthy practice for our skin, for our eyes, we do not take the same precautions.
The sun’s rays, can be a threat to our eyes, if not properly protected, not only with annoying conjunctivitis and keratitis, but in the long run also with significant damage to the cataract.
The Commision for the Defence of Eyesight, presented in Washington D.C., during a meeting, the data of a research of the Cambridge University, proving that although the percentage of those who are aware of the damage caused by non-quality glasses has increased, the percentage of those who buy sunglasses in sports stores, supermarkets and fuel station has also grown.
We must be careful when buying sunglasses, even more when we buy online. Be sure to always ask that there is a CE certification, to ensure that the lenses are really able to defend us from sunlight and that there is not poor quality materials capable to cause allergies.
The World Health Sight Defense Commission, emphasizes the importance of the lenses, whose quality is essential for an optimal defense and turning to specialty stores, is a way to have the guarantee of the product purchased and find qualified personnel to help us in choosing the right glasses to use.
Thinking that an eyeglass is good both for the sea and for the mountains, means not taking into account the difference in the incidence of sunlight and that children up to 12 years are particularly sensitive and therefore more at risk from the possible harmful effects of UV rays.
Prescription glasses: How to choose the perfect frame?
Eyeglasses are increasingly becoming a must-have accessory for personalizing your style.
If once they were a simple tool related to the health of vision, now they are worn to give a touch of originality to your look.
Today, prescription eyeglasses are created in all possible and imaginable forms, redefining the style of past decades in a completely modern key with new materials, colors and shapes outside the box, in order to achieve greater lightness, comfort and fit of the glasses.
There are many models to choose from and it is not always easy to choose a frame that enhances our look and that best responds to our personal taste. It is not enough to follow the fashions of the moment, we must rather try to reconcile some parameters such as style and facial features.
So here are some tips, especially for our female audience, to choose the most suitable frame to enhance the peculiarities and lines of your face.
The rule is simple: you must give priority to a frame in contrast with your shape, which will balance the lines of your face.
If, for example, you have a small and round face, we suggest a classic square or slightly rectangular frame, to give greater incisiveness to the face.
Spectacles with large frames with decisive and angular shapes that recall the ’50s, a style that has never been forgotten, are also good.
Better to avoid rounded frames, which we instead recommend to those with an elongated face.
In this case, a minimalist frame with thin lenses will help you to refine your features, giving you that sophisticated and personal air that recalls the hippie style of the ’70s.
Also recommended are the iconic aviators with teardrop lenses, a model that brings to mind the mask 80s – 90s aviation pilots, a must with eternal charm, ideal for those who want to show off an eccentric look.
If you have an oval face, on the other hand, cat-eye or butterfly glasses are the ones that are right for you; with their stylish design, a reference to the timeless retro style of the 50s and 60s, which tells of a timeless elegance, that of the great actresses of the time.
Feminine and whimsical, the cat-eye is re-proposed under renewed shapes and colors that do not go unnoticed.
