For example if the buyer has the face in form of a triangle he must wear an aviator model, if his face is round the best fit is rectangular ones, if you have a squared face round lens are good, and of course don’t use wear the shape that your face has. The color of the lens has to be in contrast with the one of the iris.

No matter what type of sunglasses we would choose they will always change our image, most often making us look better, we must take good care of them, clean the dust and grease with a soft cloth or the wiper provided being careful not to scratch the lens as they will become useless .For kids they are a special attraction and they are commercialized in intense colors. Let’s remember the times when we bought our first pair, and saw the world with different eyes…was this because of the glasses?
