Are your eyes very sensitive to glare? This article explains why 7eye AirShield sunglasses can be ideal to protect your eyes from bright light and peripheral glare, outperforming standard designs of wraparound sunglasses.
What causes photophobia?
Photophobia, the condition in which your eyes are very sensitive to sunlight and other forms of glare, is a symptom of many medical conditions, which can include an infection or inflammation that is irritating your eyes.
Common causes of light sensitivity include contact lens irritation, conjunctivitis, dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, cataract, and macular degeneration. It can also be caused by some medications and some genetic conditions.
Why 7eye AirShield sunglasses are so effective at blocking out glare
Standard wraparound sunglasses or over-glasses leave small gaps around your eye sockets through which unwanted light can penetrate. This means that they do not fully block out peripheral glare.
In contrast, 7eye AirShield sunglasses have a padded cushion around the edges of the lenses that compresses gently around your eye sockets.
This AirShield closes off much more of the unwanted stray light as well as insulating your eyes from wind, dust, and pollen.
Eyewear Accessories Ltd sells a range of 7eye AirShield sunglasses in different styles and sizes. The sunglasses are well designed and look contemporary and stylish.
Which lens colour is best for protecting against the sun's glare?
For most people, the best choice for reducing glare from bright sunshine is a Polarised lens.
AirShield sunglasses can be supplied with either Grey or Brown polarised lenses. (Note that 7eye's brand name for their brown polarised lens is "Polar Copper".)
All 7eye lenses provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.
If you need prescription lenses fitted to the glasses, this is normally no problem and the process for getting your lenses made is straightforward.
How do I select glasses that will best fit me?
The effectiveness of AirShield sunglasses to protect your eyes from glare will be maximised by selecting a frame that fits well around your eye sockets. You may wish to buy a couple of different frames for comparison..
We suggest that you start with the Size Guide which lists all the glasses in order of increasing frame width. You can click through from the Size Guide to a full description of each frame, including its measurements.
