Which lens is the most preferable?


Sunglasses with the yellow lens are a great choice preferably when you are in low light. So next time you plan to go to a place with lower light, yellow glasses can be stylish sun protection for your eyes.


If you’re near-sighted, brown and amber tints can be a great choice.

Green/Light Blue

Farsighted? Nothing better than green/ light blue-tinted sunglasses.

Why is 100 per cent UV protection important?

Your eyes tend to become weaker if they are frequently exposed to the sun. hence it’s always better to buy sunglasses that offer 100 per cent UV protection.

What shape should you select?

Determine your face shape before you opt for the sunglasses, then choose the best fit. If you have a round face, large and square shades are the best choice.

Flashier frames are best for heart-shaped faces as it gives a more striking appearance.
