For eye comfort in the mountains, it is essential to have a pair of sunglasses of at least category 3. Indeed, it is necessary to have lenses of protection index 3 or 4 to be able to enjoy the landscape, even if the sun is strong.
Category 3 sunglass lenses are perfect for most situations. They filter out up to 90% of the sun's rays. With a pair of glasses of this type, your eyes will be properly protected even in strong light conditions.
Category 4 sunglasses are the most powerful and are therefore the ideal lenses for use in the mountains, on glaciers where reverberation is strong. Please note that cat4 glasses are prohibited for driving.
Regardless of the category of protection, the goggles are all quality goggles to protect you in the mountains, in addition to the models Cébé sunglasses adapted to faces will be perfect for all your mountain outings.
Although the category of lenses is extremely important, it is also favourable to have photochromic or polarized lenses, since they increase the comfort and therefore the protection of your eyes.
Photochromic lenses are lenses that darken or lighten, depending on the brightness. As you can see, these lenses can be upgraded from category 1 to category 2 and then to category 3 if necessary. Whatever the weather, you will be protected and properly protected.
Polarized lenses come with an anti-reflective coating. Polarization minimizes reflections to avoid glare and therefore eye fatigue.
What could be better than a pair of sunglasses with photochromic and polarizing lenses?
To be protected as much as possible, it is advisable to opt for glasses with side shields. This is because the side shields, which can be removed, avoid/diminish all possible light. The glasses will therefore cover your eyes and their contours perfectly, which ensures incredible eye comfort.
