Winter Sunglasses: 5 Reasons to Wear Randolphs THIS Winter

Why should I wear sunglasses when I’m not on the beach?

Everyone knows sunnies are meant to block the sun on warm days with clear skies, but that’s not the only time you should wear your Randolphs. Make THIS winter the one to start protecting your eyes for a lifetime.

DID YOU KNOW, the sun is closer to eye-level during the winter for many people around the world?

Best Sunglasses for Winter

Believe it or not, the best sunglasses for winter are not the same as the best for summer.

New seasons cause a big change to your surroundings. Your eyes still require protection from UVA/UVB light to prevent macular degeneration, but a shift in the sun and terrain also brings a different kind of challenge to your sight.

For example, in the summertime you may squint due to the sun directly overhead, but in the winter you will most likely squint due to harsh conditions like wind, snow and rain. During the summer, a solid lens will fully block overhead light, while in the winter, a lighter lens or gradient lens will do the trick for dimmer sunlight.

“Flat light” is another common way to describe the change in lighting during winter months. The dimmer lighting reduces contrast and takes definition away from your perspective, such as when you look out across a beautiful landscape but can’t quite spot the best details. Randolph lenses are designed to enhance definition, adding depth to how you view the world around you. Our Cape Sand lens color provides maximum definition and depth perception during flat light conditions.
