Performance Sunglasses: What Are They... And Do I Need Them?
Have you ever seen a
sports figure or motorcyclist wearing a pair of sunglasses and thought how
cool those shades were? Well, those sunglasses aren't just cool looking,
they are also protecting and assisting their vision. With Americans
spending more time outdoors, sunglasses geared towards sports or
performance-orientated activity is in higher demand today.
sunglasses are sunglasses that are tailored towards a specific sport,
activity or profession. There is an array of sunglasses customized for
skiers, motorcyclists, airline pilots and others. Performance sunglasses come
in many different fashionable styles, fit and lens colors to provide the
best possible use. For example, depending on the weather conditions, a
baseball player, golfer or water skier might wear a pair of sunglasses that
have a dark amber, copper or brown colored lens because it blocks high
amounts of light from clear skies and improves the contrast on grass or
against blue skies. Someone cycling or snowboarding would wear orange or
yellow colored lenses which filter blue light for a sharper focus.
Regardless of the color, these lenses are polarized to reduce glare and
protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. They are also available in
durable frames and made with polycarbonate lenses to resist possible
impact that might occur while you are involved in a physical activity.
So, the next time you go to purchase a pair of sunglasses, besides making
sure you look cool in them, ask yourself, "Why will I be wearing my
sunglasses and what will I be doing while wearing them?" Chances are you may
find yourself needing a pair of performance sunglasses. Whether you are
playing a baseball game, skiing down a slope or driving your motorcycle on an
open highway, do it with performance sunglasses. You will not only look cool
in your shades but your vision will be optimal, making sure that you catch
sight of your best performance.
