Serious Ultraviolet Protection
There are 3 categories of invisible high energy UV rays: UVC rays, the highest-energy rays and potentially the most harmful, UVB rays with slightly longer wavelengths and lower energy than UVC rays and UVA rays which are closer to visible light rays but which can pass through the cornea and reach the lens and retina inside the eye. Gary Heiting, O.D. has researched the effects of UV (ultra-violet) rays noting that extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pingueculae and pterygia and photokeratitis that can cause temporary vision loss.
|In the second image note how the Randolph Engineering Aviators lens blocks the harmful UV rays and the Infrared rays, but allows all of the visible light to pass through. When considering the purchase of a pair of aviator sunglasses it is important to make sure they block between 98-100% of these harmful UV rays, as well as the infrared rays. Infrared radiation is transformed into heat which can heat up and burn the surface of your eyes. This is why your eyes may feel warm, become red and tired with long exposure to bright sunlight.Blocking the Infrared radiation results in your eyes feeling cooler, preventing surface burn damage to your retina.|
The very best aviator sunglasses must block 98 to 100% of UV rays along with the infrared rays and “blue light” rays. Recent studies suggest that the blue end of the light spectrum may also contribute to retinal damage and possibly lead to macular degeneration. The retina can be harmed by high-energy visible radiation of blue/violet light that penetrates the macular pigment found in the eye. Notice how the Randolph Engineering Aviators lenses with premium mineral glass are ground to block uv, infrared and visible “blue light” rays.|
Determine Your Size
There are several methods for determining the proper Frame Width for your face.
- If you already own a pair of glasses and/or sunglasses that fit you well simply use a ruler and measure the inside dimensions of the frame;
- You can look at the arms (temples) and/or under the nose bridge and see if the Frame Width is stamped there;
- You can use a ruler and looking into a mirror measure the width of your head from temple to temple.
Any one of these methods will give you the information you need to choose the correct frame width. For more information go to our How To Choose Sunglasses Size page.
