Polarized Lenses?
What are Those?

Sunlight scatters in all directions, but when it strikes flat surfaces, the light that is reflected becomes polarized - meaning the reflected light beams travel both horizontally and vertically.

Polarized lenses contain a special chemical film that filters out the horizontally scattered light rays - the kind of intense reflected light that hurts your eyes and limits visibility. Wherever there is sunshine, there will be glare. Polarized lenses eliminate harsh glare while still letting the vertical light rays in.

Polarized rays are different than an ultraviolet UVA or UVB ray, which are harmful to the eye too. While UV coverage is highly recommended, polar coverage is more so a matter of preference and lifestyle. 

By removing reflected glare, polarized lenses increase contrast and visual clarity, helping you to see objects and features more accurately and perceive the true colors of things. Also, you don’t have to work so hard to see what you need to see, reducing eye strain and making your eyes more comfortable.

Who Should Wear Polarized Sunglasses?

Polarized lenses are the best way to protect your eyes during Summer, when the suns rays are the most harsh and when vacays mean you'll be spending a ton of time outside.

Polarized lenses are great for anyone who wants to spend time outdoors – especially people who spends serious time at the beach or at a pool where sunlight is reflecting off the water. Stuck on the freeway? Reduce the glare from all those surrounding vehicles with polarized lenses.
