What should I look for when choosing a pair of sunglasses?

No matter what sunglass styles or options you choose, you should insist that your sunglasses:

  • Block out 99-100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation;
  • Screen out 75-90 percent of visible light (fashion tinted lenses usually do not meet this level);
  • Are perfectly matched in color and are free of distortion and imperfection;
  • Have lenses that are gray, green, or brown
  • Should cover a larger area of the eyelids than some prescription eyewear so that light from above and other angles is fully blocked out.
