Many drivers do not even think about it, but there are sunglasses that are not suitable for driving. When you are driving, they can put your life in danger. We are talking about those with lenses that do not allow a sufficient amount of light to pass through them, thus blocking the view. Equally dangerous are the colored lenses, which can change the shades of colors and the contrast between them.

In this mini-guide you will find valuable tips on how to choose the right pair of glasses and thus reduce the risk of accidents.

Perhaps the most appropriate choice when driving, sunglasses with polarized lenses, such as those from ATTCL , are very popular with drivers. This type of lens reduces the degree of gloss of wet surfaces upon contact with light. This is because these surfaces – for example the wet road – reflect light, which is very disturbing to the eye.

In addition, polarized lenses are perfect for driving in foggy conditions, because it helps you to see the outline and details of objects better.

Gradual lenses

Gradual lenses are very safe for drivers. This is because they allow a sufficient amount of light to pass through the eyes, for optimum view of the steering wheel. Then they do not change the colors. In addition, the lower part of the lens – in a lighter shade – allows a better observation of the board, while the upper – darker – protects the eyes and offers good visibility at the wheel even on days with strong sun.

Lens sensitive to light and driving

Heliomatous lenses – which change color depending on the degree of light they are exposed to – are not recommended at the wheel. And this is because the windshield blocks up to 40% of the UV rays and thus delays the process by which the heliomated lenses change their color or even prevent it. This means that, often, drivers will end up driving with the wrong lenses – too close or too light.

The color of the lens and how its intensity can affect the driving

The different colors used in the manufacture of lenses can influence the degree of light that reaches the eye, how well a driver can distinguish the colors or the level of contrast the eye perceives.

Thus, the color of the lenses can influence – positively but also negatively – how well the driver sees traffic signals, traffic lights or potential dangers.

In this regard, scientists point out that lenses in shades of pink, blue or green should not be worn behind the wheel because they can neutralize the red of the traffic light. Therefore, do not choose them unless marked as safe to drive.

The best lenses for driving are those in shades of gray or brown, necessarily polarized, shown in this guide. These are neutral and do not affect the way we perceive colors in nature.

And the lenses marketed specifically for drivers come in yellow tones or amber-specific shades, golden-brown, which enhance the contrast between colors.

Last but not least, when choosing lenses, you must also consider the degree of color intensity. In the case of sunglasses, it is measured on a scale from 0 to 4 and determines the amount of light that reaches the eyes.

The type 4 should never be worn at the wheel, because they reduce concentration, cause drowsiness and endanger you, while type 0 lenses are perfect for driving at night or on very dreary days.

The style of the frames and how it can influence the driving

Glasses with oversized frames, very fashionable nowadays, are a danger behind the wheel, because they can compromise peripheral vision. Thus, the risk of accidents increases considerably.

Very popular among drivers are aviator glasses, being thin and with thin arms, which does not in any way hinder visibility. However, specialists recommend slightly curved lenses, because they will prevent the light from reaching the eyes near the frame.
