That’s why it’s so important to choose sunglasses that fully protect you from UV light.
Visible or white light can be a major source of glare. To ensure you’re protected, you need lenses with the right tint for your
activities. The ability of lenses to absorb and reflect light can be enhanced with a polarized filter or mirror coating. Specialized frames can also help guard you against this type of light. For example, curved or oversized frames provide better eye coverage and light protection, while wide temples prevent stray light from entering from the sides. Depending on the nature of your activities, some models will offer greater protection and comfort than others. Talk to a Lunetterie Béland optician to find the right frame for your needs!

When it comes to protecting your kids from the harmful effects of sunlight, eyewear is as important as sunscreen. Wearing a hat is always a good idea, but sunglasses provide an additional level of protection. For total protection, Lunetterie Béland recommends UV-blocking lenses. It’s also important for the frames to fit the contours of child’s face and for the lenses to follow the curve of their eyes in order to prevent reflection from the sides and back.
