Are Darker Sunglasses Better?

July 29,2021

The darkness of sunglasses lenses has nothing to do with UV protection. Dark lenses may reduce visible light for visual comfort, but must always provide 99-100% UV protection. Because ultraviolet light is invisible, the shade darkness is purely a visual preference, inferior to ultraviolet protection.


Always make sure that the grade of the sunglasses is UV400.
