Lens Choice

Why is the right lens important?
The lens in your sunglasses is there to prevent harmful UV and blinding sunlight to reach your eyes. 
By choosing the right lens for your situation you will increase the comfort of the sunglasses.
What does UV400 mean?
UV400 means that a sunglass blocks at least all the harmful UV light up to 380 nm.
This is the recommended amount for sunglasses, all of our sunglasses are UV400 and block the harmful UV light.
CE categories
The CE mark on sunglasses means that it is conform european quality requirements.
There is a difference in CE categories that describe the amount of light that gets through.
For a sunny day a pair of sunglasses of CE category 3 is recommended.
For less sunny days a sunglass with CE category 2 is sufficient.
Polarized Sunglasses 
Sunlight is scattered in all directions, but when it is reflected through flat surfaces it can become polarized. 
This means that the light will travel in a more uniform way and can cause annoying and dangerous light intensities.
A Polarized lens reduces this effect by a coating that reduces glare and discomfort. 
If a pair of sunglasses has a polarized layer it is shown with a P in the specs table.
