    It's very necessary for to wear sunglasses when going out. There are special sunglasses for people with low vision. Ordinary sunglasses can help reducing glare, but you need something to enhance contrast. Normally, colored sunglasses will make things darker, and may even help reduce glare. But they usually don't help to enhance contrast, which is extremely important to a person with low vision. But, there are some specific colors that can both reducing glare and also enhancing contrast. Yellow colored sunglasses may be very helpful for you in a cloudy day. Amber, amber/orange, or dark plum colored sunglasses may be very helpful in a sunny day. Remember that grey sunglasses generally do not help to enhance contrast, and may actually reduce contrast. You can buy some glare shields from net; they are many styles and low cost.

    Well, of course, you can. In my opinion, I will just suggest you try sunglasses with prescription. For example, you can just try to wear aviator prescription sunglasses. First, you need to know that it is the first brand which actually designs aviators that was intended to protect the eyes from the sun while still looking good. So we can say that aviator sunglasses can just make you look attractive and beautiful. Also, aviator sunglasses have perfect the materials used in the frames, which is made of carbon fiber. So that it can be very lightweight while strong and flexible. At the same time, the aviator prescription sunglasses, so that you can have a perfect vision, so it will be very suitable for people like you who have low vision.

    Actually, low vision describes significant visual impairment that can't be corrected fully with glasses, contact lenses, medication or eye surgery. However, if you still would love to try a pair of sunglasses, the wraparound sunglasses are highly appreciated. You can find some at firmoo.com Hope this helpful.
