Gucci, is now known worldwide, not only seen in the fashion houses, but products such as a Children's line, cologne and Gucci prescription sunglasses which can be purchased in various retail stores, and online. Most of us are very familiar with the old look of the wide, thick frames for sunglasses. As designs changed to be more fashionable, there are those who need more than a pair of the traditional sunglasses.
Traditionally, those who have eyesight problems have been required to use a pair of the clip ons to cover their prescription eyeglasses. Otherwise, there was the inconvenience of constantly changing back and forth between their eyeglasses and sunglasses. Through the years, eye wear designers have recognized the need for stylish, prescription sunglasses. Those who are active in outdoor winter and summer sports and activities not only need protection from the sun's UV rays, but protection from glare and debris from the elements as found with those who ski and snow board during the winter months. During the summer, after the skis are stored away, the skateboards and bicycles are put to use.
When purchasing lenses our eyes need protection from not only UVA, but UVB rays as well. The styles of frames or goggles will not only protect the eyes from glare which may impede our vision while driving or biking, but from other elements such as wind, and debris. Tinting is also a popular choice for eyeglass wearers. Many choose the shade of tinting according to appearance, rather than the purpose. Gradient tinting, which has the darker tint at the top of the lens, and lightens as it graduates to the bottom, are perfect for driving. The shades of tints, and mirrored-coated lenses vary.
