Not only does your handcrafted wood sunglasses look great, they are ultimately there to provide your eyes with optimal protection against harmful rays from the sun. Just like sunscreen, sunglasses should be worn every day in order to protect your eyes. Just as the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage skin, they can also harm the lens and cornea of the eyes.
100% UVA and UVB protection
When buying sunglasses for the protection of your eyes you have to look for complete UVA/UVB protection. Those are the ultraviolet light that is harmful to your eyes. Protection against UV 400 is just as important. (These block light rays with wavelengths up to 400 nanometers, which means that your eyes are shielded from even the tiniest UV rays). Many doctors recommend that sunglasses should be worn every day and should protect against these damaging rays of light.
When you buy a pair of Woood sunglasses you can set your worries aside because our researchers and engineers have thought about all of these factors and protection was our number one priority. Our sunglasses provide you with all the relevant protection and some more. We are all for looking good but protection is always important.
The hype around polarized lenses
Polarized lenses are made by melding two lenses together with a polarizing film in between. This allows light to only enter at one specific angle and thus taking the strain off your eyes with dealing with light from the sun and light reflecting of shiny surfaces.
Is it really necessary?? Simply put… Definitely! Take a drive in the early morning after sunrise or in the evening before sunset when window/dashboard glare is at its worst, sunglasses without polarized lenses will just not work. You will still be sitting there squinting like a fool. Polarized lenses have further advantages like reducing glare on water (great for fisherman), reducing reflections from pavements, snow and windows. Because it is two lenses and a film layer melded together it makes the lenses allot stronger. Polarized is just simply the way to go.
At Woood we have researched the best lenses to put in our handmade sunglasses and we found that polarized is simply the best. All our sunglasses are fully polarized for added benefit. Our lenses compete with the big boys in the market and hold their own. It compares great with lenses from Ray Ban sunglasses, Oakley sunglasses, Prada sunglasses and many other big brands.
