Mirror Sunglasses consist of an optical coating on the outside surface of the lenses of the sunglasses. This gives the impression of a mirror to the lenses. Such optical coating is also known as flash coating or mirror coating. These lenses usually have a tint that the wearer can experience. This mirror coating is helpful in further reducing the amount of light that passes through the lens by 10% to 60% more as compared to the other sunglasses. The mirror effect is not visible to the user from inside, only the onlookers can see the mirror. Mirror sunglasses are perfect in every weather condition as well as in sand, snow, water, sports, higher altitudes etc.
Why are Mirror sunglasses so called?
Mirror Sunglasses were usually used by the police officials of the United States. Thus, they are also called by the name of ‘’Cop Shades’’.
Mirrored sunglasses contain one layer of a deposited thin film which is made out of suitable metal. This metal coating is responsible for giving mirror effect to the lenses. However, the drawback of mirror sunglasses is that they get scratched easily and also fade away or degrade faster than the other sunglasses. Moreover, they react with the salt-water and may turn rusty or corrosive. This is because the metal film reacts with the salt-water as it is not corrosion resistance.
Nowadays, modern reflecting coatings are highly used in the manufacturing of the mirror sunglasses. This includes a dielectric layer that is made from oxide such as Chromium Oxide, Silicon Dioxide, and Titanium Dioxide etc.
Can I get Mirror sunglasses with Polarised Sunglasses and Prescription Sunglasses?
Indeed, you can get mirror sunglasses with polarised or prescription lenses fitted in plastic or metal frames of your choice. Polarised Sunglasses consist of polarised lenses which are effective in harsh and extreme conditions such as while driving on highway, playing watersports or ice sports, fishing, skiing, climbing, etc. Polarised sunglasses with mirror coating on the lens are helpful in protective eyes by providing enhanced protection to the eyes from blinding and strong rays of light, glares and reflections.
On the other hand, Prescription Sunglasses with mirror coated lenses consist of lenses which have power strength according to the prescription. In such cases, the lens can be single power or multiple power i.e. varifocal lens. Whether you have nearsightedness or farsightedness, nothing can prevent you from wearing mirror sunglasses as long as you can get the lenses according to your prescription. So whether you need mirror sunglasses with distance power, reading power or both (in case of varifocal glasses), you can easily get as per customisation.
