Sunglasses: A Fad as Popular as Fashion

The most important thing actually is the XYZ Optics technology used by Oakley. This technology prevents sight distortion. For an athlete, this accuracy is of utmost significance. Paul said Oakley products, which have passed the ANSI (American National Standard Institute) test as sunglasses that are worn by many athletes from all branches of sports in the world such as golfers, tennis players, racers, surfers and rock climbers.

Indeed, Oakley sunglasses, produced since 1984, are not only for sports people only. The design has become trendier now and they are suitable for various outdoor activities. Rudhy B of Optik Seis even admits that sunglasses are now worn not only to provide shade against sunshine but also to look stylish.

Whatever the purpose may be, what must be borne in mind is that sunglasses must be able to give maximum protection to the eyes of those wearing them.

According to the American Optometric Association, to determine good sunglasses, the following criteria must be taken into account:

  • The sunglasses can prevent the A or B ultraviolet radiation up to 99 percent – 100 percent. Products of good quality usually provide the label about this UV protection. Sunglasses give as much as 70 percent – 90 percent protection to type eyes against the light that comes directly towards the eyes. Usually sunglasses that can serve only as an accessory to your dress will not have this protective feature.
  • The color must be suitable and free from sight deviation and flaw.
  • The sunglasses have lenses of various colors such as grey, green or brown. The grey color is better recommended as it can avoid dazzling light but it won’t disturb the sight of someone wearing the sunglasses when looking at the objects around him. The sunglasses that cover the entire area of the eyes. It would be better to choose sunglasses that can also frame the cheeks so that the eyes can be completely protected against the UV light radiation.
