Polarized sunglasses provide a range of benefits that make them a popular choice among men. One of the major advantages is the reduction of glare. Whether you’re driving, spending a day at the beach, or engaging in outdoor activities, polarized lenses help eliminate the blinding glare caused by reflected light from surfaces such as water, glass, or snow.
Additionally, polarized sunglasses enhance clarity and color perception. By reducing glare, these lenses provide a sharper and more vibrant visual experience. Colors appear more saturated, making the world around you look more vibrant and vivid.
Factors to consider when choosing polarized sunglasses
When selecting the perfect pair of polarized sunglasses, there are several factors to keep in mind:
- Frame style and materials: The frame style should complement your face shape and personal style. Consider materials like durable acetate or lightweight metal. When shopping for sunglasses on Zenni, we recommend using the Virtual Try On tool to see how the glasses fit on your face!
- Lens material and technology: For added impact resistance protection, choose a polycarbonate lens material. We recommend adding a premium anti-reflective coating that reduces light reflections and includes fingerprint and water-resistant technology.
- UV protection: At Zenni, we ensure that all our polarized sunglasses provide 100% UV protection to shield your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.
How to choose the right sunglasses for your face shape
While selecting sunglasses, it’s essential to consider your face shape to find the most flattering pair. Here are some tips for different face shapes:
Round face: Angular frames, like square or rectangular shapes, can help add definition to your facial features.
Oval face: Lucky for you, an oval face shape is versatile, and you can experiment with different frame styles, such as aviators or wayfarers.
Square face: Soften your strong jawline with round or oval frames that add a touch of gentleness to your facial structure.
Rectangular face: Balance your facial proportions with oversized frames or wraparound styles.
