How do I choose the right sunglasses?

Sunglasses are not only an accessory that complements our appearance, but are essential to protect our eyes, as well as the skin around them. Just as ultraviolet (UV) radiation can damage your skin, it can also damage your eyes! In particular, it is responsible for the appearance of various eye diseases such as cataracts or macular degeneration (retinal disease).

At the same time, the reflection of sunlight on surfaces such as water, pavement, sand and snow can also be very dangerous and can cause photokeratitis (sunburn of the cornea).

Below we present you what you should consider when buying sunglasses, as the issue is not only aesthetic but also quality.


It is extremely important to choose quality glasses that provide us with full protection from UV rays. The UV400 that you see written on the sunglasses indicates that these lenses have the ability to block light rays with a wavelength of up to 400 nanometers, so your eyes are protected from even the finest UV rays.

Lens Tint

Another important factor to consider when choosing sunglasses is the correct shade of the lenses, which has nothing to do with UV protection. The tint of the lenses has a direct relationship only with the perception of colors, that is, with what color we see through the lenses. What we should pay attention to is how comfortable we feel wearing the relevant lens color. A darker lens is more suitable for the morning and midday hours with strong radiation and a lighter one is more suitable for the evening hours and times when the radiation is not strong.

The purpose of your glasses

If you drive for long hours or do sports outdoors, choose glasses with polarized lenses. Sunglasses with polarized lenses have extra protection filters against UVA & UVB light. Polarized lenses are suitable for those who are more sensitive to the sun or are constantly exposed to UV light. They also offer 100% protection and clearer vision without any distortion in the image or colors. They absorb all reflections offering absolute comfort throughout the day.

Face fitting and symmetry

Another extremely important factor in choosing sunglasses is how they fit your face. You need to feel comfortable when wearing your glasses, they should not feel heavy or press your face as well as they should adequately cover your eyes. The larger the frame, the larger the skin surface that is protected. In any case, you can ask the specialized OJO service consultants so that any necessary corrections to the application of the frame to your face can be made.


Style Being one of the most timeless and important fashion items, sunglasses show not only our taste and our style, but also aspects of our character and our personalities. There are glasses that are for more formal and serious occasions, sports glasses, glasses suitable for sports and more intense conditions, glasses that are more retro, etc.
