All cyclists should wear good quality sunglasses to protect their eyes from the sun and wind.
Impact resistant and UV400 coated lenses are essential, as these will protect your eyes from UV-rays, dust and flying debris.
For cyclists who go out for early morning rides when it is still dark, photochromatic lenses are recommended. These lenses will start out clear when you leave the house, but will change colour with the changing light conditions, effectively giving you a pair of sunglasses by the time the sun comes up.
For cyclists who require prescription spectacles, sunglasses can be made for distance only or for distance and near. The reading section is necessary for seeing your computer or fixing a puncture. The latter would be multifocal lenses, which provide the cyclist with clear and comfortable vision at all viewing distances. These lenses can be permanent sunglasses or photochromatic lenses.
