Why Driving Sunglasses?

Sunglasses are essential for driving under a blazing sun. To make matters worse, the sun’s reflections off of passing cars and windows can cause a constant glare while you’re in heavy traffic.

The sun can be especially bothersome when you’re traveling during dusk and dawn. During these times, the sun is closer to your field of vision as it crests over the horizon, causing a hazard for your ability to read the road and giving you a real headache. These moments are so tough to get through, because you have places to be!

Driving sunglasses help prevent the sun from bothering your vision, especially at dusk and dawn.

The Best Color Sunglasses for Driving

While bright and flashy lens colors are fashionable and fun, the best color sunglass lenses for driving are the classics: gray, green and brown.

Sunglass frame styles, especially modern designs, are usually gender neutral, but there are a few trends you can choose to follow.

  • Men’s driving sunglasses tend to lean towards aviator, rectangular, hipster, round and flat top frame styles.
  • Womens driving sunglasses tend to lean towards butterfly, cat eye, round, translucent and patterned frame styles.

Polarized Driving Sunglasses

It’s also very important for your driving sunglasses to be polarized. Not all tinted sunglasses are polarized, so be sure to select your lens accordingly for polarized sunglasses.

Polarized driving sunglasses are designed to counter horizontal wavelengths in the sun’s rays, allowing vertical light to pass through your lens, and creating the perfect filter for helping your eyes see clearly under bright sun.
