Feeling irritated with the stinging summer sun? The glare reflected from the snow or water may be? You are not alone. Glare can leave anyone disillusioned and hazy and can rob off the fun of even the best planned outdoor holidays. Glare can strain the eyes, especially among people who are sensitive to light. This is what makes polarized sunglasses a great choice to consider.
Benefits of Polarized sunglasses
Polarized sunglasses are highly useful for people who are exposed to the sunlight for most part of the day. Boat men, skiers, bikers, golfers, joggers, and others who require a glare free view can switch to polarized shades to protect their eyes from the glare. These sunglasses are also ideal during road trips and for those who need to walk under the scorching sun.
Polarized sunglasses will enhance outdoor visual experiences for people who frequently move about in the sun or those suffering from cataract or glaucoma.
How does it work?
The sun’s rays reflect in every direction and when it hits a flat surface like water or snow, the light shines back at your eye and is magnified, causing glare. It can considerably reduce depth perception, distorts and colors or even momentarily cause blackouts.
While regular sunglasses only reduce the amount of light that is transmitted through the lens, Polarized lenses eliminate the glare completely. The polarized coating on the lens of the sunglasses contains molecules that are aligned horizontally and absorb horizontal light waves, while still allowing vertical rays to pass through. As the light transmitted travels only in one direction, the glare is eliminated. Polarized lenses are available in various thicknesses. The thicker the lenses more will be the impact resistance
Polarized sunglasses are not just for summer
Polarized sunglasses are the best choice for sunny days and water activities like waterskiing or boating. However, interestingly, polarized sunglasses are more useful in winter where light gets reflected off snow or during road trips. It will prevent UV risks all the while cutting down the risks of glare during activities like skiing or snow -boarding among others.
