Gradient lenses are tinted from top to bottom – darkest at the top, with minimal colour towards the bottom. They look stylish, help protect your eyes from ultra violet rays and are useful for reading while looking through the lighter area when outdoors.

Photochromic lenses are clear indoors and darken automatically when exposed to UV rays. The change in colour happens gradually and is based on the intensity of UV exposure which means you can have a single pair to tackle eyesight issues indoors and also avoid glare outdoors.

Polarized lenses have a filter to reduce the glare created by strong reflections of the sun. They can also increase the clarity and quality of vision. People who suffer from light-sensitivity find them especially useful.

Overexposure to UV rays is harmful for your skin and poses a threat to eyes and the delicate skin around them. Sunglasses with UV protection are sunblock for your eyes
