Tips for choosing glasses for sport
There are a million types of graduate glasses for each sport, and if you are not able, it may be difficult to find exactly what you need for a particular sport. The first is that you know what your eyes need and then you can choose glasses based on :
- Sealing by sweating, especially for sports where we do not want glasses sliding off the face under intense activities and strong training. Some of these materials absorb liquid which will make better grip when sweat runs down on your face.
- Lens Materials: we appreciate about following your graduating goggles when you practice your sport is durability, clarity, weight and price. Polycarbonate is the most common among sports glasses. Are lightweight, impact-resistant, it has good clarity and is cheap. Glass har the best clarity of any lens material but is costly, relatively heavy and certainly not very resistant to impacts.
- Color of lenses: hue of the lens affects the amount of light transmitted to the eye as well as the contrast between light and how certain colors appear. Grey, green and brown is true colorist lenses that reduce gloss and too much light conditions. Red provides high visibility in low light, and increase contrast for snow sports. It also makes much visible against a green background, making it ideal for mountain biking and running. Yellow is also good for contrast, providing much needed depth perception in overcast weather, much flat light on the ground. It is best for low light, but offers less protection from the sun.
- Lenses feature: modern lenses go far beyond just blocking sunlight and UV eye. Polarizing reduces horizontal luster, especially reflections from shiny surfaces like water. The photochromic lenses lighten and darken in response to the sunlight intensity. If you practice surf or paddle should consider this aspect.
