Sunglasses offering maximum protection
Choosing the right sunglasses, whether for everyday wear or for sports, is above all about protecting your eyes from the sun's harmful rays. To do this, you need to find a pair of glasses that protects you from harmful UV rays 100%. Also pay attention to the place where you go or simply to the sun conditions. The recommended lens category is not the same if you are in the mountains or if you are sunbathing at the water's edge. There are 5 categories of sunglasses ranging from 0 to 4. The more you find yourself in conditions of low sunlight (overcast), the more you can choose a lens with a category close to 0. The more sunny the weather, the more you should choose a lens with a high category, such as 3 or 4. It should be noted that category 4 is to be used in sunny mountain conditions or on the water when the sun's reflection on the water is dazzling. It is important to note that it is not advisable to ride with category 4 lenses. In general, category 3 lenses often provide good protection for your eyes in bright sunlight.
