Mirror Sunwear: Where high-fashion meets high performance

| By: Susie Clark | Posted in:

People choose sunglasses for similar reasons, but certain lifestyles make some lens technologies more attractive than others. Mirror coated lenses are no exception. From the fashion forward, to cycling enthusiasts, mirrored lenses meet the needs of a wide variety of people.

The Outdoor Enthusiast

Mirrored sunglasses are designed to increase the amount of light reflected from the front surface of the lens. This in turn makes the lens more effective at limiting how much light enters in bright outdoor conditions. When combined with polarized lenses, mirrored sunglasses are the perfect eyewear solution for all outdoor activities in every season.

The Road Warriors

A common complaint of some sunglasses is the optical interference with the absorptive filters in car windshields that cause an annoying visible pattern. Therefore, mirrored lenses may be a perfect solution for those who spend a lot of time behind the wheel.

The Trendsetters

Worn originally by military pilots in the 1940s, mirrored sunglasses have become a fashion phenomenon with permanent spots on runways and red carpets. Those looking for high-fashion – or simply the best Instagram selfie – sport these shades to achieve looks that only mirrored lenses can provide.
