There are a lot of different things you’re going to have to do to keep your sunglasses looking brand new for years and years to come. You’ll also want to be sure that you have purchased sunglasses with the right coating and the right tint to protect their finish – and your eyes – without any headache or hassle whatsoever.

Unfortunately, there are so many different options that you can pick and choose from when it comes to sunglasses lens tint and coating solutions that it can feel almost impossible to get your hands on exactly the right solution for your specific needs.

But that’s why we’ve put together this quick guide!

Be sure that your new sunglasses include at least some of these features below and you’ll be sure to get your hands on a quality set of specs you can use to protect your eyes from the sun.

Anti-scratch tint and coating is priority number one

Even though you are definitely going to want to search for a set of sunglasses that looks fantastic on your face, it’s also critically important that you purchase sunglasses that are protected with anti-scratch coatings that you know you can depend on.

There are a lot of different options out there, including anti-scratch coating so thin you’d never know it was there as well as options that are as durable as the non-scratch surfaces of our cell phones today. At the end of the day, you want to know that even if you accidentally drop your sunglasses they will still be fine to wear.

Anti-glare tint is a smart investment

The right anti-glare tinting is going to provide you with a much better day-to-day experience when you are wearing your sunglasses, especially if you are going to be working outside most of the time you are wearing them.

Glare isn’t just going to make it a lot more difficult to interact with our daily world (and it certainly does that), it can actually damage your eyes. Many people also experience headaches due to eye strain and fatigue caused by glare.

Anti-glare materials come in a variety of different colours, a variety of different shades, and a variety of different finishes. But at the end of the day, you’ll want to choose one that lets you see the world without straining your eyes or your eyesight along the way.
