Why You Should Be Wearing Polarized Sunglasses

Ready for clearer vision, reduced glare and protection for your eyes? Then you should be sporting polarized shades. Here’s why polarized lenses perform better. 

If you love the outdoors, whether you’re hiking, biking, or hanging on the beach, then you’ll love a pair of polarized sunglasses. That’s because polarization minimizes reflected light from bouncing in your eyes and improves both vision and safety in the sun. 

How exactly do they work? A special chemical is applied to lenses to filter light, so that the lenses act a bit like a miniblind in front of a window. This filter blocks horizontal light waves, which are the kind that bounce off water, roads or other reflective surfaces. The result is the ability to see in crisp detail and less eye fatigue. 

Not all polarized lenses are created equally, however. Look for multi-layer lens technology, which offers enhanced color vision, superior UV protection, and makes the lenses scratch- and impact-resistant.
