Although there’s no denying that you look great in your trendy pair of sunglasses but there’s another reason you wear them. Your shades might help you make a statement without saying a word; they also protect your eyes and the delicate skin around them from harmful ultraviolet rays that filter through on even the cloudiest of days. Even though the mighty Sun is millions of miles away from us, it still emits UV rays that play an important role in causing macular degeneration, cataracts and growths on the eye, including cancer. Hence, shield your eyes from harmful UV rays when you are outdoors.
Apart from lens material, choosing the right lens color is also very important. From gray and green to brown, yellow, red and amber, different lens colors add to the performance of your lenses in different light conditions and offer different kinds of protection or vision enhancements. On one hand, brown or green-tinted lenses offer minimal color distortion while enhancing the contrast, while on the other hand, grey-tinted glasses help cut the glare to reduce eyestrain in slightly above average brightness situations. Yellow, amber or gold-tinted ones work well in moderate to low light conditions because of their ability to amplify the available light.
Mr. Anjoy added: “With the increase in health consciousness among people, the value of well-known Brands has got a wide acceptance. Nowadays most of the people are eager to settle for branded products. L&M has bought a number of international eye ware brands to cater to these needs. We at Lawrence & Mayo, with a current all-India network of 116 stores have embarked upon a robust expansion drive with a growth rate of 11% every year and we are all set to open 60-70 new exclusive outlets in India by 2021 end primarily targeting the Tier-I and Tier-II cities.”
