Sunglasses are a must-have for any beach outing – not only do they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but they are also a great fashion accessory and help to complete your summer look. But with so many different styles on the market, it can be tricky to know which ones to choose.

Read on for our top tips!

Things to Remember When Picking Beach Style Sunglasses

Make Sure Your Eyes are Protected

We all know how harmful the sun's rays can be to our skin, but did you know that they can also damage our eyes? Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to a number of eye problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pinguecula (a yellowing or thickening of the whites of the eyes), and certain types of cancer.

Not all sunglasses are created equal, and the lens alone is not enough to protect your eyes from the radiation. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you choose sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection.

All the sunglasses on our website offer complete protection from UV rays, so you can be sure your eyes are safe when you’re out in the sun.

Consider Polarised Beach Sunglasses

If you’re planning to spend a lot of time near water, we recommend investing in a pair of polarised sunglasses. Polarised lenses are treated with a special coating that helps to reduce glare from the sun bouncing off water or other reflective surfaces. This makes them ideal for activities like fishing, sailing, and watersports.

Remember Your Prescription

If you wear prescription glasses, you might be wondering if you can still rock a pair of sunglasses this summer while still being able to see clearly. The good news is - you can!

We offer a wide range of prescription sunglasses with both single vision and varifocal lenses for both men and women, so you can enjoy the sun without having to squint or strain your eyes. Plus, we have a great selection of designer frames from top brands like Ray-Ban, Oakley, and Ted Baker. Aviators, wayfarers, sports sunglasses, and more - we’ve got you covered.

Now that you know what to look for in terms of protection and function, it’s time to start thinking about style. Beach-style sunglasses come in all shapes and sizes, and of course, you want to make sure you pick a pair you feel comfortable wearing and one that suits your face shape.
