Earth Wood Rockport Unisex Sunglasses with Color Lens
about this item
Buying sunglasses combines style and safety. Shopping for sunglasses can be an enjoyable experience; however the selection can be very confusing. Will a $300 pair of sunglasses be better than a $10 pair from the flea market? What type of lens represents lasting quality? How will the sunglasses protect you and present yourself to the world?
EARTH wood sunglasses must offer more than a fashion look. Below we have listed the important questions to ask when buying nonprescription sunglasses. First, does the cost of the sunglasses represent the quality of sunglasses? No! Many companies have expensive advertising budgets to convince the consumer the value of their product. Regarding quality, there are 4 main factors.
1. Sunglasses provide protection from ultraviolet rays in sunlight. Ultraviolet (UV) light damages the cornea and the retina. EARTH wood sunglasses eliminate 100% of the UV rays.
2. Sunglasses provide protection from the sunlight. When too much light hits the eye, it naturally closes the iris. Once the iris closes you will start to squint. Too much light, as there can be when sunlight is reflecting off of snow, the result is damage to the retina. We do not suggest wearing EARTH wood sunglasses when snow skiing; as specialty lens are needed. However EARTH wood sunglasses will protect your eyes from excessive sun in normal situations.
3. Sunglasses provide protection from glare. Select surfaces can reflect a great deal of light, and the bright spots can be distracting or can hide objects. EARTH wood sunglasses can completely eliminate this type of glare as all EARTH wood sunglasses use polarization.
4. Sunglasses can remove specific frequencies of light. Some light can blur vision, and others can enhance contrast. Selecting the correct color shade allows your sunglasses to work better in specific situations. EARTH wood sunglasses are shaded dark enough to remove the majority of the frequencies of light. Polarization is a common phase when buying sunglasses. Many sunglass brands claim polarization however they fail to meet the definition.
Polarization can be tested. Find a reflective surface, and hold the glasses so that you are viewing the surface through one of the lenses. Slowly rotate the glasses to a 90-degree angle, and the glare will diminish. All EARTH wood sunglasses provide full polarization.
Scratch-resistant is not scratch proof. All sunglasses can become scratched however EARTH wood sunglasses via the 100% UV protection offers increased protection. When the glasses are not being used, please place sunglasses in a soft protective pouch. All EARTH wood sunglasses come with a protective cloth pouch to act as a cleaning cloth and protector of the lens.
