Designer Sunglasses – See Things Straight
There's a scene in the Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, where the cornered
couple load up on guns and military hardware before launching themselves against a mini-army
of agents out to get them. The last thing they do is slip on some pretty stylish shades to indicate
they're as ready as they'll ever be. Sunglasses work a bit like a bullet proof vest for the eyes,
safeguarding our sight from damage, as well as providing a host of additional benefits.
Designer sunglasses were born when a naval officer requested for a pair to be designed after
suffering damage to his sight after a hot air balloon adventure. The glare of the sky caused
permanent damage. But he wanted to look stylish too – hence Ray-Bans were born. Pilots wore
the designer sunglasses primarily as a form of protection, but they couldn't help looking
effortlessly cool too.
But wearing the best designer sunglasses doesn’t just about love your look; it's about loving
your eyes and your health. By protecting your eyes from damaging ultraviolet rays, you stop
yourself from developing a squint. Although cheap sunglasses can work, over time they lose
their effectiveness, and not all cheap sunglasses come with UV protection.
And if the worry of damaging your eyesight isn't enough motivation, the brightness causes you
to squint and frown – which trigger deep set wrinkles. It's important you wear good quality
sunglasses not just in the sun, but if you are in the water or snow where light is stronger due to
reflection and glare. Good sunglasses can eliminate UV rays completely.
