Reasons to wear sunglasses for driving


Shades aren’t just a fashion statement. Even if they make you look stylish, they can often times be imperative to good driving. Sunglasses offer protection from extreme brightness of the sun and its harmful UV rays, and can shield your eyes against dry winds and dust that you might encounter while driving with the windows down.

These items that can impair visibility are the reason why Route 33 Nissan wants to stress to drivers how important it is to wear sunglasses while behind the wheel.

Polarized and mirrored lenses are commonly known as the types of sunglasses that can provide the best protection against these types of distractions. The perfect pair, while matching your outfit, can keep your eyes both healthy and comfortable. Business Today recently directed an interview with Doctor Navin Sakhuja, eye surgeon at Moolchand Hospital in New Delhi. In it, he offers some worthwhile advice when it comes to choosing the color of your sunglass lenses.

“Tints are applied to lenses to help absorb light as it passes through. It is best to consider amber, neutral grey, brown or green color lenses,” said Dr. Sakhuja.  “Grey lenses reduces brightness, but does not distort color. Blue glasses are not suitable for driving, while yellow sunglass lenses are really good for sharpening up images, however they cause more color distortion. Brown lenses reduce glare sufficiently well, including absorbing the blue frequency of light in the sun's rays, which makes your surroundings seem hazy.”
