How to Choose Your Designer Polarized Sunglasses

Choosing the right pair of designer polarized sunglasses takes some forethought. The first thing you should consider is what the primary use of your sunglasses will be. Are they just to keep your eyes protected while looking fashionable? Or are you going to be participating in a specific sport and need greater outdoor visibility? When you know exactly how you're going to use your sunglasses you can make a more informed decision as to what your exact needs are.

If you plan to be outside for extended periods of time in bright sunlight you may want to opt for polarized sunglasses with a gray tint that maximizes your overall visibility of objects. Lightweight and comfortable frames are also a necessity if you're going to be wearing your designer polarized sunglasses for any length of time.

If you plan on using your designer polarized sunglasses for a specific sport try seeking out sunglasses made specifically for that sport. Tennis players can easily keep their eye on the ball by choosing polarized lenses that mute all colors except the color yellow, making the tennis ball literally pop out of the background. By the same token, golfers can choose lenses that are tinted to enhance the contrast of the green color spectrum and provide greater contrast of objects against the golf greens. A white ball and beige sand trap will be much easier to spot with lenses like these.
