Choosing sunglasses for a holiday

It’s important that every traveller has the right pair of sunglasses for what’s sure to be an amazing journey ahead. And of course you want to be able to see every bit in all its glory!

While we all want to look good in the latest fashionable specs, when choosing sunglasses we also need to remember that a good level of protection is vital. With all those wonderful sights out there, preserving your eyesight with the right kind of protective sunglasses is one less thing to worry about on your travels.

Sunglasses will protect your eyes from harmful UV Rays, while reducing glare and filtering light to give you the best possible viewing pleasure. A good pair of sunglasses will provide up to 100% UV protection, so make sure to take that little bit of extra time to choose the right pair.

Here are some top tips when choosing your sunglasses...

Polarized sunglasses

These glasses are a sure favourite for sailors and fishermen, protecting from the glare reflected off the water’s surface. Wet roads are much more bearable for you hikers out there, and visibility and safety are improved on that already challenging hike.

Photochromic lenses

Also known as transition lenses, photochromics are an invaluable type of sunglasses. They allow the wearer to move freely between dark and light areas, adapting according to the light conditions so you don't need to worry about taking off and putting on your glasses. You can pop into the next service station without the fear of going blind from the darkness!

Polycarbonate lenses

These lenses are a must for backpackers. Made from tough impact and scratch resistant materials, they are the most durable type of lense. They're light and easy to carry around - and less likely to shatter when you next drop them!

Sports sunglasses

Sports frames are designed to ensure maximum durability and sustainability, and they're perfect for a casual look.

Choosing sunglasses
