By choosing a color tint for your lenses, less can mean more. If you want to wear glasses frequently, the tint should be minimal so that the people you are interacting with can see your eyes clearly. When choosing the color, women should wear their makeup more frequently and select a tone that fits with it. Also take into consideration the clothes you wear. The optics can then present a selection of colors, from the men’s or women’s collection, that match with your glasses.

The trend favors, especially, shades of yellow, pink or blue. However, if you are considering using your sunglasses as a sunglasses, choose carefully because not all lenses provide adequate protection against the sun and especially against ultraviolet rays. Some may even cause damage. Whenever you wear sunglasses, your pupils expand completely and thus are not so well protected. Make sure you have chosen sunglasses that filter UV rays: sunglasses that reduce light up to over 30% to provide 100% UV sun protection. Important: the color or intensity of the tint does not indicate the level of UV protection, the only reliable indicator is the CE mark. In general, sunglasses sold at optics are CE certified and therefore compatible with UV protection.

In addition to UV protection, pay attention to a second protection factor. Within the gamut of light, the blue light causes the most damage to the eye, it attacks it at the point of origin of its clearest visual energy. In addition, it can cause diffuse light, which reduces the level of contrast.Good sunglasses should provide protection against UV rays and blue light.

If you are worried about your current sunglasses, your ophthalmologist can help you measure the blue light penetration and UV protection levels of the glasses. The ophthalmologist may also check the quality of the glasses. You can also perform an initial check at home: raise your glasses in a straight horizontal line by moving them back and forth. If your sunglasses are of good quality, the line should not be distorted. However, this test only works with prescription sunglasses.

How can plastic lenses be more colorful than lenses of mineral material? 

Lenses of mineral material, ie lenses made of glass, are dyed with vaporization of absorbent layers. These thin layers are composed of metal or metal oxide compositions, and can only be vaporized at elevated temperatures. They also have high natural refractivity and their degree of reflection increases. Accordingly, the layers are vaporized in several steps to maintain the required properties of the glass.Mineral lenses are available in brown shades of different levels of absorption – and as a standard feature, always have a golden anti-reflective coating on the back.

The shade of plastic lenses is achieved by immersing the lenses in colored solutions. Plastic lenses can therefore be dyed in almost any color.
