Today I thought I would give you some information of Lens categories and which category you need for which type of Sunlight, as I always find it very troubling when my Sunglasses don’t feel like they protecting me enough!
In order to determine how light or dark lenses are, they are given a Category Rating from 0 through to 3. The rule to follow is the higher the number, the darker the lens colour.
Category 0 – Has no tint or very little tint, these are usually worn for sport, comfort or fashion purposes.
Category 1 – Has a very light tint, these are usually worn for very weak levels of Sunshine.
Category 2 – Has a medium light tint, these are usually worn for average levels of Sunshine.
Category 3 – Has a Dark tint, these are usually worn in strong Sunshine and when the glare is reflected back at you from water, ice or snow, they are also perfect for driving.
