Tips & Tricks to Protect Your Eyes and Your Sunglasses this Summer by Tres Noir
• Blue or yellow lenses are a big no-no! When it comes to sunglasses, blue or yellow colored lenses only serve to increase contrast and brightness. This clearly defeats the purpose of what sunglasses are supposed to do: shade! Stick with darker tinted lenses.
• Plastic frames stretch from heat! Avoid leaving glasses or sunglasses in direct sunlight, such as on dashboards or in your beach bag at the pool or beach. Instead, always store glasses in a protective case. Repeat this mantra: If not on your face - keep in the case!
• Look for titanium frames with silicon nose pads. When the heat is on, the sweat pours. Avoid heavy frames that turn up the heat index - keep cool with lightweight titanium frames. And look for glasses with silicon nose pads to prevent summer slippage and keep you from channeling your inner Poindexter as you repeatedly push sliding glasses back up your face with you index finger.
• Buy wrap frames. Not only will you hit the mark style wise, wrap frames also offer the maximum protection for eyes against the sun’s damaging UV rays by shielding your peripheral view as well as your front view. You’ll avoid the squinting that still occurs with regular sunglasses, and if you squint less, you’ll wrinkle less!
• Say goodbye to sand and saltwater smeared shades! Show your glasses the love with MOSCOT’s secret cleaning weapon: add a drop of Joy or Palmolive to bowl of water big enough to submerge your glasses (remember, one squirt will do.) Soak glasses overnight and then simply wipe clean in the morning with a premium paper towel. We’re not snobs but cheap paper towels and tissue paper are made with wood chips that can scratch your precious lenses.
