Depending on the material, glass - glass or plastic - plastic is written on the bow, glass or label. On glasses with a UV filter, there is a UV marking, with a prefix in the form of percent. The percentage of protection for all models is different, suitable for different situations:
- 15-20% - minimum protection, suitable on a cloudy day;
- 40-65% - the initial degree of protection, ideal for morning and evening, when the sun is not so active;
- 65-90% - average level, suitable for a sunny day and relaxation in hot countries;
- 90-100% - maximum ultraviolet blocking. Used for photophobia, for skiing, driving a car.
If you buy glasses without a UV filter, choose light or translucent lenses. In the sun, the pupil narrows and accepts less UV light than if it were dilated. Wearing glasses without a filter in black or dark, the pupil expands and receives a large amount of sunlight, which harms the retina. If there is no filter in the accessory, but the glass is light or transparent, the pupil narrows, which acts as a natural defense.
The color of the glasses with a protective factor does not matter. In this case, it doesn’t matter whether the pupil is dilated or not, and in both cases the filter will not let the rays pass. Experts believe that the intensity of the color of the lenses, of any color, also does not affect the ability of the filter to block sunlight.
IMPORTANT! Wearing sunglasses without a UV filter, you are depriving yourself of natural protection from the rays - narrowed pupils.
The opinion of experts is as follows: design, brand, price does not matter. The main thing - do not neglect the protective properties, and in the budget segment there are high-quality models. It’s better to accumulate and buy good points, rather than buying a piece for the season, causing harm to health.
