How to pick the right kind of sunglasses?

When it comes to buying sunglasses, you can choose from a plethora of options in not only the style of frames and colors, but also in lenses and polarisation. Along with these factors that we will be discussing in this article, you must also choose from a good brand ensuring the superior make and quality of the shades. There are many optical retailers in UAE that sell original Ray Ban, Fendi, Lacoste, Gucci sunglasses in Dubai.

You must select a shop wisely before investing in a pair. Here are some tips to choose sunglasses based on a few important factors. Take a look.


When it comes to the color, black is necessarily not a perfect match for every skin tone. Black is generally used by business people.  A tortoise shell or a dark woodgrain finish is considered to be the best alternative. Along with frames, you can also choose a different hue to liven up the lenses of your shades. Consider rose- tinted lenses for a classy appeal, or go with champaign lenses to go with any tailored attire.


If you are confused between a classic pair of sunglasses or something modern, then you must choose a design that straddles both. You can go with a thicker, fuller frame if you are ready for a throwback look. You can go with timeless shapes and styles like  aviators, Wayfarers or Clubmasters.


Before you pick a pair of sunglasses, you should never forget its real purpose of protecting the eyes from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Make sure to choose quality sunglasses that block 100% of both UVA and UVB rays. A sticker or a CE mark (showing that they meet European standards) on the lenses indicates this.


‘Polarised’ is among the truly needed to know terms when shopping for a pair of sunglasses. It is referred to as the anti-reflective coating applied to the backside of the lenses. This feature helps in dealing with glaring issues, by improving the clarity and contrast in bright conditions. It is an essential quality for sunglasses especially for anyone who spends their summers near the water or on the slopes, or enjoys working in front of the laptop while sitting in sun.
