Mirrored sunglasses were one of the hottest trends back in the early 2000s, and they still haven’t lost their charm. Fashionistas own a minimum of two pairs in their closet, so why shouldn’t you?
Mirrored sunglasses feature a reflective optical coating known as mirror coating or flash coating on the outer surface, so it looks like a tiny mirror on your eyes. These lenses usually give off a light sepia or gray tint. It comes in a variety of shades so if you’re planning on creating an entire collection of these, rest assured, there are a plethora of options available.
These uber-cool and futuristic mirrored sunglasses don’t just look great, but are also extremely beneficial. Don’t believe us?
Here are five benefits that will convince you to invest in a pair of mirrored glasses.
1. Brighter And Better Field Of Vision
It might seem contradictory, but mirrored sunglasses offer a brighter field of vision. Typically, mirrored sunglasses reflect light instead of absorbing it, thereby offering superior visual clarity. They are exceptionally durable, which makes them apt for people involved in sports or water activities. In general, mirrored sunglasses are an excellent option for those who spend most of their time outdoors as these reduce eye strain and fatigue caused by the sun’s UV rays.
2. Better Durability
If you’re clumsy and prone to dumping your glasses in your bag or the drawer, or often have no idea where you put them, there’s good news for you. Mirrored sunglasses are super durable. While they can withstand most wear and tear, a few scratches are inevitable. So, like any other eyewear, keep the frames and lenses clean and in good condition.
3. Glare And UV Protection
Hate it when the harsh sunlight falls directly on your eyes every time you step out? Who doesn’t! While you may have pretty sunglasses to cover your eyes, a pair of mirrored sunglasses will give your eyes added protection along with great style. With its 100 percent UV protection feature, mirrored sunglasses mean no more headaches or a heavy head when you’re traveling or running errands. Moreover, mirrored sunglasses are great to wear in summers and winters, both!
If you prefer a quiet day in, but your friends insist on stepping out, we got you covered. A pair of mirrored sunglasses is just what you need. Thanks to its reflective coating, no one will know whether you are staring or not making eye contact behind those beautiful tinted shades? Talk about mastering the perfect disguise!
