Sunglasses can be fun & save you from the sun
SUNGLASSES and summer go hand in hand. With the fiery sun casting his fiercest gaze at all mortals, it is safest to hide behind a pair of Ray Bans. Not only do goggles protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays, they also let you express your sense of style.
The market is brimming with countless types of eyewear that now comes in almost all shades and shapes. Hereís a brief checklist of the goggle styles for the season and tips to keep them visibly clean:
This summer's fashion lines are heavily influenced by sthe tendencies of the '70s. Oversized rimless shades are all '70s-ish, and they'll definitely "glamour up" your look for summer.
Metal frames are sturdier but give a more masculine appearance. As for colourful plastic frames, not everyone can carry them off. It takes a distinguished style, as well as an "I don't care" attitude.
Gradient lenses are made in single or dual colours, and they normally taper gradually from a darker shade on top of the lens to a lighter one at the lower part.
For a clean and
futuristic look, opt for a stylish pair of shield-shaped lenses. A
shield lens is a one-piece oversized rimless lens, with attached arms
elegantly screwed in to fit comfortably around the ears.
Maintaining your goggles properly is as important as goggle safety itself. No longer is it the simple "goggles on, goggles off" lecture.
Keep them clean
Clean your goggles thoroughly as soon as you get home.
Keep the goggle bag clean and dry. Shake it out and make sure there are no small rocks/dirt/sand/twigs,etc. This will keep foreign objects from scratching your lenses while they are in your case.
The lens coating becomes, over time, a little bit temperamental.This is not true of a brand new lens, but after a week's wear, the anti-fog coating will become less effective, and wetting the lenses will be required more often, especially first thing in the morning.
