It’s almost summer, which means it’s time to start breaking out your beach gear. An absolute must-have for a day soaking in the sunshine, sand, and sea is a trusty pair of beach sunglasses. Not only will they have you looking your coolest, they will also protect your eyes from the elements and the UV rays coming from the sun.
At Ocean Waves, we’ve got the highest quality, the most stylish, and (most importantly) the most protective beach sunglasses money can buy. In this blog post, we cover why our glasses are the best choice for your beach eyewear, and also offer up some of our favorite beach styles so you can find a pair that suits your unique personality.
What Makes Our Glasses So Great: The Protection
When it comes to choosing a pair of sunglasses to wear at the beach, there’s several things you need to take into consideration. Style, for one; you need to make sure the pair you choose fits your vibe. But the main thing you should look for in beach sunglasses are lenses that are coated with several protective layers. These layers will ensure your eyes aren’t damaged by sand, saltwater, UV rays, and other outdoor elements.
All our sunglasses feature lenses that are built up with 6-7 layers of protection:
- Crown Glass - a high quality, zero distortion form of glass that’s also used in binoculars and cameras
- Mirror Between Glass - a layer in which a mirror is sandwiched between two glass lenses to deflect light and protect the mirror from being scratched
- Polarization Film - provides 100% UV-A and UV-B protection
- Bonding - a vacuum seal process that binds all the layers together seamlessly, without scratches
- Anti-reflective Coating - absorbs “bounce back” from glares and UV light
