If you live in the UK and are going abroad on holiday in search for guaranteed sunshine, you should take a good pair of sunglasses with you. You will need to protect your eyes from the unfamiliar glare of intense sunlight and the danger of very high UV levels.
British not used to the intense sunlight experienced in overseas resorts
While the prevailing cloudy skies in the UK tend to accustom our eyes to relatively low light levels and moderate UV levels for much of the year, we are often unprepared for sudden exposure to much higher levels experienced daily in popular overseas resorts.
Clip-on sunglasses are a cost-effective option for wearers of prescription glasses
If you wear prescription glasses, your most cost-effective option is to get a decent pair of clip on sunglasses before you go. Even if you don't normally wear sunglasses in the UK, it is advisable to get a pair before you travel because you will certainly be unaccustomed to the contrasting light conditions that you will experience on getting to your overseas destination.
Don't rely on getting the clip-ons you need on the high street!
The choice of clip-ons available on the high street is normally very limited. In our store in comparison, you will find Europe's widest range of shapes, sizes, styles, and tints of clip on sunglasses. All our products are rated to UV400 so they provide 100% UV protection, whichever tint you choose.
