Are all kind of sunglasses suitable?

Sunglasses are fashion accessories, but first of all they have to protect the eyes. The choice has to be made on the needs of every person, his style of life, his sensitivity to the light, among other factors. This is why it is recommended to buy them in optician's, under the supervision of a specialist, and not in streets, supermarkets or non-specialized shops. The highest risk when you buy sunglasses is that they do not filter properly the UV and that at the same time, they cause a dilation of the retina (because they also filter a part of the light) and this is when they can harm the eyes. For SALAS, the style, the design, the elegancy are linked to the optical quality of the lenses and to the guarantee of total protection of the UV, which they can only be guaranteed by optician's.
