Christmas Gift Ideas: Sunglasses for Driving, Know what to Look for

One of the most important driving accessories is a pair of sunglasses. They prevent glare when the sun is shining directly in front of your vehicle and filter UV rays that are harmful over the long-term and can cause cataracts. Given how practical sunglasses are, they generally make for a much appreciated gift. However, you have to choose a model that’s suitable for driving.

For instance, if the lenses are too dark, the driver may struggle to read the car’s gauges. What’s more, some lenses modify colours, which could cause the driver to misunderstand road signs, leading to unpleasant consequences. Driving-specific models do a good job filtering sunrays without handicapping the driver with unsuitable lenses. Of course, some models are nicer looking than others, but the most important aspect is that they meet the recommended standards for driving glasses.

High-end sunglasses can easily run you over $200, but several studies have proven that you don’t have to spend exorbitant sums to get sunglasses with good protection and elegant, solid frames. Specialty shops offer a plethora of models for all budgets and uses, as do various websites. If you choose to buy online, make a point of ordering early enough so that your item has time to ship and always specify “sunglasses for driving.”
