How to Select the Right Pair of Sunglasses

Sandy, UT - 08/20/19
Keep Your Eyes Safe With the Perfect Pair of Shades
What the American Optometric Association says about what to look for in sunglasses when you're cheering on your soccer star!
The season is upon us and we want all the fans on the sidelines to be just as safe as the players!
Keep your eyesight healthy by finding a pair of sunglasses that keeps out those harmful UV rays so you can continue cheering on your soccer stars!
To find the perfect pair of sunglasses, the American Optometric Association recommends:
-Lenses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B rays
-Lenses that screen 75 to 90 percent of visible light
-A frame that fits close to your eyes and contours to the shape of your face to prevent UV exposure from all sides. Wrap-around frames are best.
-Both lenses perfectly matched in color and free of imperfections
