Another reason for their popularity is that they completely hide your eyes and act as a shield from the outside world. Mirrored glasses have a reflective coating on the surface of their lenses which make them work like normal mirrors. They let light go through in one direction, but reflect it from the other. They reduce the overall light level around 10 to 60 percent, rather than simply reducing the glare and other bright points. That’s why these are ideal for different weather conditions where you need less light and useful for the people who have sensitive eyes.

Reflective lenses are available in a range of different colors. The colors of the mirror coating are not dependent on the tint of the lenses; instead the lenses can be of a completely different color from the mirrored surface. Which means you can have a pair of rainbow glasses with a blue tint and you can choose from an array of such combinations.

Moreover they are available in a variety of styles and sizes from timeless Aviators to chic Cat Eyes.  Following are the popular styles of the shades WHICH ARE TRENDING:
