I suit both but also wear Wayfarer style glasses sometimes so wondering about something different for my prescription sunglasses. I used to think Aviator’s were really naff many years ago but now I think I might like them! Which would get your vote...?
I'm just flummoxed as to why anyone who finds this stuff tedious would not only seek out these boards but take the time to open this thread and post on it. Twice. It would be like me posting in a car thread.
Aviators for me, but as another poster said they suit me partly because I have long wavy hair. Not sure how they’d look with a bob or short hair; possibly too sharp, in which case wayfarers might look better...
decent sunnies should be kite/CE marked which means they are up to standard for UV/lensthickness/tint quality
aside from that most lens materials block all the harmful UV, any UV filter is just boosting the level of blockage, iyswim, current thinking is that UV protection is a good thing so more filtering can only be good...and it's not that pricey so why not really?
polarising lenses really are a much better investment for sunspecs, so I would really recommend them over an ordinary tinted lens, you can now get prescription polarising, and thinner polarising prescription lens materials. Polarising lenses deal with bright light in much better way that a standard tint/photochromic lens, they just reduce the light available reducing the brightness overall, whereas polarising lenses filter out scattered light and reduce glare without reducing brightness and clarity.
