The Importance of UV Protection

From an early age, almost everyone is taught that spending too much time in the sun can be bad for your eyes. While that’s somewhat true, that single broad statement has become a kind of scientific boogie man. Everyone’s wary about the sun, but fewer people know about the importance of UV protection and how it can help you negate its effects. Your polarized sunglass lenses will also come with a separate UV protective coating, as standard.

Did you know? Prolonged exposure to the sun without UV protection can cause rapid macular degeneration (blurring of the eyesight.). Believe it or not, this phenomenon can occur at any time of the year, since UV rays reflect extremely well off of cloudy skies, snow, and even water. Polarized sunglasses can help your eyes filter out these dangerous rays and maintain your vision’s health.

One of the best things about these glare-blocking shades is that they come in colors such as black, blue, and even pink if you like bright frames.There’s even choice when it comes to adding tints and gradients to your polarized shield sunglasses with clear, gray, and brighter colors like purple available.

The Benefits of Polarization

Sunglasses with this special coating have unique features that make them a great choice for active people, drivers, and more. Here’s just a couple special examples: Reduced glare: Polarized sunglasses take in vertical light, but filter out horizontal light. This effectively blocks out the blurry hazes and glares associated with bright reflections during sunny days and overly bright car headlights during night time driving. Improved comfort and reduced eye strain: Polarized sunglasses naturally lessen the amount that you need to squint in bright light conditions, drastically reducing eye strain and improving comfort.


What does ‘polarized sunglasses’ mean?

Polarized sunglasses feature a filter that blocks horizontally polarized light. Flat reflective surfaces, like the ocean, reflect light into your eyes that make it difficult to see. They block light from this angle.

Are polarized sunglasses better?

They are better in some situations. If you spend a lot of time in the great outdoors around water or snow, polarized sunglasses are ideal for reducing glare. They're perfect for fishing or hiking but are not advised for skiing, as they can make it difficult to see icy patches on the slopes.

How can you tell if sunglasses are polarized?

Figuring out if your sunglass lenses are polarized is simple. Look at a well-lit, reflective surface, like water, and tilt your head to the side. If the reflected light gets more intense with your head tilted, your lenses are polarized.

What are the advantages of polarized lenses?

There are many advantages of sunglasses with polarized lenses, the main one being that they reduce vision-obstructing glare reflected from flat surfaces, like water. This makes them extremely useful in environments with lots of reflective surfaces.
