Reasons to Invest in High End Sunglasses

Shopping for a good pair of sunglasses, however, can be a confusing process at times. But, those captivating high end sunglasses are waiting to be worn by you! So, what makes a good frame high end? There are various factors you need to consider, other than which style of sunglasses would best suit your look. One of the most important factors is the type of sunglasses protection you’re getting. Now comes the semi-existential question: Should you invest in high end sunglasses brand or be thrifty with budget-friendly sunglasses? Here are 8 reasons to invest your money in designer sunglasses:

1. UV Protection

What is the main purpose of wearing a good pair of sunglasses? To protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays which can do you harm. Therefore, UV protection is THE key. Many high end sunglasses claim to have protection, but that doesn’t mean that they can all block 100% of the sun’s rays.

Cheap plastic sunglasses won’t give you the safety you are looking for. They are incapable of absorbing the UV rays because they typically have a thin coating of tint. So, the UV protection feature is weak compared to high-quality pairs’ lenses. According to Dr. Peggy Denofa, if you’re looking for tinted lenses, make sure they are 100% UV protected, with both UVA and UVB. If you want to sure of that, look for the specifics on the product label or simply ask the eye care specialist at the store.

Additionally, a good pair of sunglasses will not play games with you. They can completely block all harmful UVA and UVB rays. This alone can make every penny spent worth it. As long as you get your eyes protected from all risks, we’re talking sun exposure like cataracts, macular degeneration and corneal sunburn, you’re investing money in the right place.

2. Durable Lenses

Lenses are the second-best thing to look at when shopping for frames. Cheaply made sunglasses generally have thin lenses that are vulnerable to scratches and cracks. Additionally, cheap lenses tend to warp and distort over time. As a result, you will receive distorted vision too.

However, high end sunglasses from any high end sunglasses brand are made with durable lenses. Therefore, you’ll find the difference in quality and price between the regular sunglasses and designer ones. Also, specialty in lens coatings like mirror, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant and hydrophobic can add to the overall cost. Even so, you’ll receive superior visual clarity and comfort. It is important to note that these lenses are treated to be waterproof and can eliminate reflections and glare.

3. Visual Clarity

High end sunglasses typically hope to be the best of the best. They not only want to guarantee style and luxury but also comfort. That's only achievable by guaranteeing great vision and clear lenses. Visual clarity is so important that most high end sunglasses brands pour a lot of their resources into providing high-quality, scratch-resistant lenses.

4. Premium Materials

Here’s a question to ask yourself: Can the frame’s material affect the cost? A good pair of sunglasses are a part of many people’s daily essentials. You cannot complete an outfit without a stylish pair of sunglasses. It's an accessory that you will wear very often, therefore, it is crucial to purchase high end sunglasses that are durable, lightweight and comfortable.

Low-end sunglasses are often made from materials that may cause discomfort with long time wear, and get discoloured with wear and acidity over time. On the contrary, high end sunglasses are made from premium materials, that are durable, lightweight and comfortable unlike others. Some of these materials can be wood, acetate or metal. Acetate is a great high end material that subsitutes plastic and has great hypoallergenic qualities, therefore acetate sunglasses are highly resistant and durable. On the other hand, wood is durable, eco-friendly and extremely light. You will find that wooden sunglasses provide superior comfort as they are extremely lightweight, to the point that you can barely feel them on.

All these materials will also be treated and have premium coatings to be more durable, water resistant and scratch resistant. They don’t get discoloured when in touch with sweat or water and will deliver superior comfort for long time wear.

The durability and longevity of your high end sunglasses will eventually depend on how well you care for them. If you are not polite with your sunglasses, they probably will not last as long irrespective of the price. However, a good pair of sunglasses made with high-quality materials will hold up better than inexpensive styles made with low-quality materials. So, considering the long-lasting features of the different sunglasses, you need to go for those high end sunglasses.
