With summer approaching many of us are once again wearing our sunglasses more and maybe noticing it’s time to update the style or even the prescription.  We need to be sure they offer 100%  UVA/UVB protection.  Also know that different lenses are best for different settings and uses.

Jogging/running:  Polarized gray for bright sun and true color viewing, while brown is good for contrast and definition.

Hiking/cycling:  Yellow based tints/copper are best for visual contrast.

Motorcycling:  Photochromics are the best choice because of the lens’ ability to adjust to the various environmental conditions and the amount of sunlight.

Shooting sports:  Brown/copper for bright light and yellow/amber for low light.

Watersports/fishing:  Polarized dark gray are the best.  Add a mirror coating for even more glare reduction.

Baseball/volleyball/golf:  A high contrast in brown or green is great for the seeing the ball against the sky or grass.

Nobody says you can’t have more than one pair!  Here at Tibbetts Optical we offer a wide variety of sunglasses in all price points.  Our top brands include RayBan, Wiley X,  Maui Jim, Greg Norman, Coach, Versace, Guess, and many more.   All of them available with or without a prescription.

Stop on by and “See what you’ve been missing”.
