Not made in the shade-sunglasses aren't just fashion statements... (though they are...) ......that prevent future wrinkles-
...they're critical for eye protection against melanoma, cataracts damaging UV, Blue Light High Energy Visible Light and Infrared rays (yup-that's from those addicted to smartphones and laptops) ...which is why we lean towards those outdoor brand shades...with their top tech attributes for precise clear, accurate vision, comfort- lightweight features, perfect fit...and scratch tough-shatterproof lens.
No need to opt for the strictly aero athletic shapes either...now lifestyle options that multi-task-are city sleek as well as outdoor chic.
