The amber color of these impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses block short-wavelength blue light and 100% of ultraviolet (UV) light, thus providing additional protection against cataract formation and the development of macular degeneration, while increasing contrast on both sunny and bright hazy days.

SolarShields may be worn alone, but also fit over your existing prescription eyeglasses. SolarShields® block solar radiation in three ways:
  1. A unique top shield blocks direct overhead sun rays (like a brimmed hat).
  2. Wide side shields screen out peripheral sun rays while permitting protected side vision.
  3. A patented polycarbonate lens filters out 100% of UV sunlight.

SolarShields® are not polarized, so they won't give you annoying image reflections off automobile windows.

 Due to their powerful 90% light blocking and amber color, SolarShield Amber Blue-Blocker sunglasses are not recommended for driving.
Question: Are these glasses polarized?<br /> Answer: SolarShields are not polarized, so they won't give you annoying image reflections off automobile windows.<br /><br />Question: How are these glasses different from polarized lens?<br /> Answer: Polarized lenses only permit horizontal light from entering the eye. They are used primarily for severe glare conditions, such as being on the water. Polarized lenses limit vertical light from passing through, and may prevent you from seeing the vertically oriented lights on your automobile dashboard. Solar Shield sunglasses are brown and prevent glare from blue light passing through, but they are not polarized.<br /><br />Question: How is size determined?<br /> Answer: We only sell the large size.<br /><br />Question: Not clear if the amber, or any other color, definitely blocks out 100% blue light from ipads, computers, etc AND 100% of uv light from sun? <br /> Answer: Solar Comfort sunglasses have a protective wraparound design which shields your eyes from sun, glare, dust, and wind. They are comfortable and lightweight which makes them ideal for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. 100% UVA/UVB Protection. Polarized lenses eliminate glare. Scratch-resistant lenses.<br /> <br /> SolarComfort sunglasses are tested by an independent and internationally-renowned ophthalmic laboratory to rate their lens and frame protective qualities when exposed to direct and peripheral UV light. Some of these protective features included lens coatings (UV protection & polarization), wraparound lens and frame designs, top and bottom shields, wide temples and side shields.<br /> <br /> The objective was to measure how effective the sunglasses were at blocking dangerous light from reaching the eye. Sunglasses that were awarded the EPF Certified rating seal achieved the maximum lens + frame protection rating (95%+).<br /><br />Question: Will this block blue light coming from an artificial source? If not, then do you offer a different pair of blue blocker sunglasses that do?<br /> Answer: These reduce transmitted blue light from all sources.<br /><br />Question: Does the Solar Shield Amber/orange/brown sunglasses also block out the Sun's indigo and violet parts of the light spectrum?<br /> Answer: They block short-wavelength blue light and 100% of UV light.<br /><br />Question: What is the measurement from arm to arm? Are these womens sizes? <br /> Answer: They are a large size; not specific for just men or women.<br /><br />Question: Are these glasses appropriate fot compoter and TV viewing?<br /> Answer: No, they are only for outside wear and not for wearing while driving.<br /><br />Question: Do these come in various sizes. I have a pair of Solar Shield sunglasses, but they are polarized. I want to get the blue blockers because they're not polarized. The sunglasses I have now, which fit over my regular glasses measure about 5 1/4 inches from the inside of one arm to the inside of the other. Will these fit the same as the sunglasses I have now?<br /> Answer: These sunglasses some in one size.<br /><br />Question: My son-in-law has recently acquired a pair of Solar Shield Amber Sunglasses, claiming how fine they are for night driving. And yet your instructions say No Driving while wearing these. What's the story?<br /> Answer: The manufacturer places a &quot;no driving&quot; warning on these because it feels the brown color can inhibit seeing the color of traffic signals. Most other blue-blocker/brown lens manufacturers do not have such a warning. But due to the reduced light from this and all sunglasses, definitely do not drive at night while wearing them.<br /><br />Question: Do you have Solar shield amber Sunglasses with out the blue blocker?<br /> Answer: All amber/orange/brown tinted sunglasses reduce the transmission of blue light, resulting in higher contrast and reduced glare.<br /><br />
