Tips for Buying Sunglasses for Men


Wearing the right pair of sunglasses can make you look great and protect your eyes from harmful rays. However, not all sunglasses are created equally. There are several styles and colours of sunglasses in the market, which makes it difficult to choose the perfect pair of mens sunglasses. Worry not because this guide has a few tips you should consider before purchasing some shades.

UV Protection

When you shop for sunglasses, it’s important to remember that UV rays can cause various eye problems, including cataracts and even skin cancer. The best way to protect your eyes from these harmful rays is by wearing sunglasses with protection from UVA and UVB rays. You can ensure that your sunglasses have this type of protection by looking for the CE mark on them or checking if they have UV400 printed on them.

Head and Face Shape

When it comes to sunglasses, one size does not fit all. While the shape of your face may be the same as someone else’s, the length and width of your head can vary considerably. For example, a man with a square-shaped face might have a square-shaped head, but someone with an oval-shaped face may also have an oval-shaped head. To find a pair of sunglasses that fits your specific facial features, you should try on multiple pairs from different brands and styles at various stores before parting with any money.

A good way to start narrowing down potential options is to look online at websites like Amazon or eBay, where there are plenty of product reviews (both positive and negative) written by actual buyers who’ve worn them! 

In addition to checking out what others think about particular products’ fit/feel/etc., ask friends who wear eyewear regularly if they’d recommend anything based on their experience(s).

Know when to wear your sunglasses.

  • A good pair of men’s sunglasses can be a great addition to any wardrobe, but it’s important to know where and when they’ll be most useful. If you’re someone who spends a lot of time indoors during the day, then it’s understandable that the thought of investing in some high-quality sunglasses might feel like an unnecessary expense. However, if that isn’t the case and instead, you spend a lot of time out in the sun (or as part of some spring cleaning), then picking up something cheap may not be worth your money or time.
  • Know what weather conditions your glasses will need to withstand: How much light exposure do they need? Do they need protection from harmful UV rays? Will the lenses get damaged easily or scratch easily after being used outdoors? These questions should be answered before purchasing any pair of shades so that you don’t end up with something that won’t hold up well in whatever environment(s) will require them most often.
  • Know what activities will require these specific glasses. When buying glasses specifically designed for sports such as running or cycling—two very popular activities among men—knowing which ones are best suited for each sport is essential because each activity requires slightly different benefits from its respective pair(s) of protective eyewear.

Try some polarised lenses to reduce glare.

Polarised lenses reduce glare from water and other reflective surfaces, including the sun. In addition to driving and boating, this can be useful for sports such as golf or skiing, where there are bright lights around you. Polarised sunglasses are also ideal for people who have sensitive eyes since they block all direct light from entering your eye, reducing the amount of stress placed on them by harsh light sources like the sun.
