Choosing Different Types of Sunglasses

Narrow down your choices for a new pair of shades by determining which of the different types of sunglasses will fit your needs. What will you primarily be using your sunglasses for?

Everyday Sunglasses

These are perfect for wearing around town, whether you’re running errands or soaking in the sun on a brewery patio. Everyday sunglasses protect your eyes while looking great, but they aren’t designed for strenuous activity.

Sport Sunglasses

These glasses are made to stand up to whatever happens when you’re pushing hard outside – biking, hiking, climbing, or your favorite mode of adventure! These types of sunglasses usually feature lightweight frames designed to stay in place, even if you get sweaty. Sport sunglasses also should have flexible frames to fit so comfortably that you’ll practically forget you’re wearing them.

Glacier Glasses

If you’re hitting the slopes or attempting an alpine objective, you’re gonna want glacier glasses. The higher you climb, the more intense the sunlight, plus, light reflected off snow is for real, so you need extra eye protection in mountain environments. Glacier glasses feature lenses with a wide range of VLT (visual light transmission) as well as side sun shields (link) to prevent light from leaking in and decrease fogging.

With a silhouette similar to the bestselling Dipsea, the Tera and their partner in crime, their side shields, are the perfect duo for hitting the slopes or getting out on the water.
