All About Polarised Lenses!

Our Fabulous & Affordable Collection now includes polarised sunglass lenses for $14,950. Polarised lenses are a great option for anyone who spends time outdoors. They have always been very popular among people who enjoy a lot of time near water, and for good reason — polarised lenses block glare from light reflecting off the surface of water better than any other type of sunglass lenses. But these sunglasses aren’t just for those who love boating, fishing or going to the beach. Anyone who is bothered by glare outdoors can benefit from these advanced lenses; they are extremely helpful for driving because they reduce glare-causing reflections from flat surfaces, such as the hoods of vehicles and light-colored pavement.

Polarised lenses offer many advantages over their non-polarised counterparts, and should be a serious consideration when making purchasing new sunglasses. How They Work: Polarised lenses block light rays that would normally enter your eyes after reflecting off of surfaces. The light that enters your eye after passing through a polarised lens has been filtered, allowing the wearer to see in a different way.

 

Advantages of Polarised Lenses:

1. Clearer vision, especially in bright light

Wearing polarised lenses can reveal colors and images like never before. You will see crisply and cleanly, with a level of detail that may astound you.

2. Increased contrast and minimal color distortion especially around water

Outdoor enthusiasts such as fishermen and boaters love polarised sunglasses. The lenses make it easier to see into the water, without polarised lenses, the water’s surface simply reflects everything around it. This obscures the view into the water almost completely. Polarised lenses block this reflection and enable the wearer to see the contents of the water instead of the sky.

3. Reduced glare and reflection

On a sunny day, you may notice that objects in the distance appear hazy, or nearby vehicles are reflecting light in a way that is nearly blinding. A polarised lens removes the effects of glare by blocking reflections. This improves eye comfort and allows you to take in the view without squinting. Roadways and water sources are major culprits of glare and can cause danger to drivers who may already struggle with vision issues. Glare can create a very uncomfortable eye health issue for people with sensitive eyes, and even cause a migraine in patients who are prone to developing them.

4. Reduced eyestrain

Another nasty side effective of glare, eyestrain can be relieved with polarised lens wear. Squinting to see clear images stresses the eyes and creates uncomfortable eye health issues like redness, irritation, fatigue, and headaches. Polarised lenses neutralize this issue and allow eyes to feel more comfortable and well rested.

These advantages make polarised lenses great for sunglasses. They’re perfect for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, and they can help improve your vision in high-glare situations. There are a lot of different options for protecting your eyes and polarised lenses are just one possibility. Just like protecting your skin your eyes need protection as well.
