Different Types of Sunglass Lenses

 Sunglasses are an essential accessory to protect our eyes from harmful UV rays, glare and bright light. The lenses play a crucial role in providing the necessary protection and enhancing visual clarity. There are various types of sunglass lenses available in the market, each with unique features and benefits. So, let’s break it down.


Polarized Lenses

 Polarized lenses are specially treated to reduce glare. They work by blocking reflected light, which is responsible for glare. Polarized lenses are ideal for outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, and driving


Mirrored Lenses

Mirrored lenses have a reflective coating that helps to reduce the amount of light that enters the eyes. This type of lens is popular for its stylish look and is ideal for pretty much any and all outdoor activities.


Gradient Lenses

Gradient lenses have a gradual transition from a dark to a lighter tint. This type of lens is perfect for those with sensitive eyes who require protection from bright light but still want to see clearly in other areas.


Photochromic Lenses

Photochromic lenses are lenses that darken when exposed to UV light and lighten in low light conditions. This type of lens is perfect for those who want to switch between sunglasses and regular glasses.


Prescription Sunglass Lenses

Prescription sunglass lenses are designed to provide both visual correction and protection from harmful UV rays. They are ideal for those who require prescription glasses and want to enjoy the benefits of sunglasses.


 There are various types of sunglass lenses available in the market, each with its own unique features and benefits. The type of lens you choose depends on your specific needs and preferences. When buying sunglasses, it's important to consider the type of activity you will be participating in, the amount of light you will be exposed to, and your visual needs. No matter what your needs are though, Fuse has got you covered. Browse our wide selection of lenses and find your perfect match!
