Summer is in full swing in this beautiful month of September. The summer of idleness and holidays at the foot of the beaches and coconut palms! But be careful, however, that the joys of idleness do not make you forget the danger of solar radiation and its harmful effects on the visual organ. Here are 7 tips to protect yourself effectively from the summer sun.
Invest in a quality sunglasses
To protect the eyes from UV rays, it is advisable to wear a sunglasses. But not just any one! Good solar shields are distinguished by four essential criteria.
When buying a sunglasses, make sure that the lenses only allow a minimum amount of solar radiation to pass through. The ideal would be optimal filtration, if you plan a stay in the southern Mediterranean countries where the sun is at its peak. Many corrective and non-corrective glasses will meet this requirement. This way, you will have a magical stay in the sun without making any for your vision.
A good telescope does not create these annoying reflections that prevent you from seeing the objects around you. Prefer lenses that have been anti-reflective tested.
The shape of the frame
The curvature of the lenses also influences the light output. Choose concentric glasses, with curved or rounded lines, which provide optimal protection for the retina.
The colour of the lenses
Some colours enlarge the visual acuity. Brown faithfully reproduces contrasts, as well as grey and grey-green. On the other hand, blue lenses are not suitable for summer light.
Sunglasses for drivers
Do not part with it
When the sun hits our eyes in an intense and brutal way, it is difficult to discern the environmental data from the road! To remedy this, it is important to wear a sunglasses. It is the faithful companion of motorists who love old cars.
Choose the appropriate category
The intensity of the glasses varies on a scale from 1 to 4. Level 3 lenses seem to be the best way to protect yourself from the heat of the summer sun. Shade 4 is more efficient, but it is not suitable for driving because it is too dark. Lower category lenses provide only poor protection for the driver’s eyes in contact with the sun.
Adopt polarized glasses
To drive safely, nothing beats polar lenses. They make shades and colours vibrate while neutralizing annoying reflections on your windshield.
