    As we know, mirrored sunglasses lenses are covered with a reflective optical coating. Some people called it mirror coating or flash coating. The sunglasses lenses looks like a small mirror from outside. This is why some people called it mirrored sunglasses. And the coating on the sunglasses is not just for unique looks, the coating can decreases the amount of light passing through the tinted lenses, which makes the sunglasses available for conditions of sand, water, snow, and higher altitudes.

    Indeed, the mirrored sunglasses may make you avoid the intensive sunlight. Following the design principle of common sunglasses, the mirrored sunglasses are just added with one more advantage. That is the tapetum lucidum on the surface of the lenses which may reflect the bad strong sunlight directly when it comes to the surface of the lenses. Thus, if you go to the place where the sunshine is really so hot, you can be suggested to wear the mirrored sunglasses.
