The best sunglasses for driving and which one’s to choose!
Whether you prefer to hit the beach to soak up some rays, have a picnic in the park or play a game of sport with the kids, there’s nothing better than getting behind the wheel and heading to the great outdoors on a sunny day. But when the sun is high in the sky, the glare from its rays can prove to be a big driving hazard.
If you want to make sure that you can see the road clearly on a sunny day and get you and your family to your destination safely, then you need a good pair of designer sunglasses to help you.
As well as helping you to look super fashionable, designer sunnies also have a very practical use in that they will help to protect your eyes from the sun and its harmful UVA and UVB rays, which are known to potentially damage your eyesight over time. And when it comes to driving, they can also reduce glare and make it easier for you to see. So with that in mind, it really is important for you to keep a pair handy in the glove box of your car for when the sun is shining.
What to keep in mind when buying sunglasses for driving
Here are some of the key things that you need to consider when buying a new pair of sunglasses for driving:
- Frame style: It’s really important to keep your peripheral vision clear when driving, which means avoiding frames that are oversized as they can cause an obstruction. With that in mind, it’s best to go for frames that have thin arms and large lenses – designer sunglasses aviator and wraparound styles are therefore perfect!
- Lens colour: The colour of designer sunnies lenses affect how much light is able to reach your eyes, and therefore wearing a pair with the wrong colour when driving can affect your ability to see road signs and respond to hazards too. Therefore it is always best to go for sunglasses with grey and brown lenses as they do not alter how colours appear when they are worn.
- Lens style: It is also a good option to choose lenses that are polarised (as they can reduce the glare from headlights, wet roads as well as the sun). In addition, if it’s possible to choose lenses that have a graduated tint in a grey or brown colour then these are perfect for driving too. For example, the fact that they have a darker tint at the top of the lens than the bottom means that as a driver you are still able to see the road clearly through the dashboard while the top part reduces the glare of the sun.
