Transcript of Sunglasses project

History Behind It All
Tint Colors of Lenses
Since blue and violet have the shortest wavelengths, meaning they are closer to the ultraviolet waves, these color tints can result in damage to your eyes. As we get closer to the yellow color, it becomes safer due to the fact that theses color tints absorb harmful blue visible light and provide protection.
My company, SunRays hopes that one day
our sunglasses will be worn all of the world ranging from the youngest child to the oldest adult.
Polarized Lenses
Polarized Lenses VS. Light
Polarized lenses reduce the reflected glare; for example, the sunlight that beams off of water. Many people use polarized lenses for skiing, driving, and fishing.
Lens Materials Cont.
Trivex Lenses

slightly better visual than Polycarbonate lenses
blocks 100% sun's UV rays

not all manufacturers produce trivex lenses
Purpose Of Sunglasses
Many people feel the need to wear sunglasses due to medical reasons. The sun's UV rays can cause not only cancer around the eyelids and skin around the eyes, but also photokeratits, aka snow blindness, which is a temporary, but painful, sunburn of the eye's surface.

Also, another reason why sunglasses are worn is it provides comfortable vision. The sun's brightness often affects the ability to see clearly, causing people to squint, and their eyes to water.
Sunglasses VS. EMS
Sunglasses affect the EMS in ways such as, it stops the waves in a process called absorption where lighter colored materials are able to take in more light while the darker colors repel light from the subject.
Lens Materials
Plastic Lens; CR-39

can be made in almost any prescription
can be tinted in almost any color
light weight

easily breakable
softer than glass, so they are more prone to scratching
For my sunglasses, I am choosing to use lightly colored tints, such as yellow. They are considered safer because they are farther away from the ultraviolet waves. Lighter colors do not absorb, they reflect, making it easier when referring to sunglasses, to see.
In this case, you get what you pay for. These sunglasses have polarized lenses so they will reduce glare while driving, they are durable, and they are made from the Polycarbonate lens materials which provides 100% UV protection.
Having our sunglasses worn all of the world will provide great experiences to the one's that wear them. Are lens materials and tints are top of the line. SunRays is the sunglasses future of the world. It is our goal to make wearing sunglasses more enjoyable and beneficial to our clients, and that is just what we plan to do!
I choose to polarize the lenses, due to the facts that:
these lenses are are very comfortable to eyes that are sensitive to glare
they are good for driving since they cut off reflective glare from the pavement
they aid in better vision
This picture below shows how
polarized lenses aid for better
vision and reduces the reflected
glare off of the water.
The above image shows the affect polarized
lenses have on sunlight that reflects off of
water, snow, and pavement
This picture to the side shows how the sunlight's glare is eliminated with polarized lenses
Having spent 2 to 3 hours in bright sunlight can affect the eye's ability to adapt quickly to the night or indoor lighting. It can make driving at night more on the unsafe side, so wearing sunglasses in the daytime can protect one's risk of getting in an accident at night
Polycarbonate Lenses
I chose Polycarbonate lenses for my sunglasses because they are
very strong
light weight
nearly shatterproof, and also polycarbonate is one of the items used in making bullet proof glass
strongest prescription lens
100% UV protection
This lady in the image above is wearing
sunglasses in order to block out the
sun's harmful UV rays at
the beach.
As you can see, sunglasses
are able to block out some of
the sun's brightness as in the picture
Above is a reference to the EMS
Above shows many different tints used for sunglasses. Notice how many of them are light-colored, due to the fact hat they are considered the safest.
Inuit people wore flattened walrus ivory as glasses. They had narrow slits in them in order to block out the harmful UV rays
In the earlier prehistoric times, Inuit people wore flattened walrus ivory that had slits in them in order to block out the UV rays. Later on, Nero, a Roman emperor would use emaralds to watch gladiator fights, however, this technique was used more as mirrors. During the 12th century in China, sunglasses were made from flat panes of smokey quartz which did not help with protection of UV rays, but did prevent glare.
