Sunglasses with Polarized and Mirrored Lenses


Polarized Sunglasses

Most of us know that the sun's rays can harm the eyes, so we pay special attention to protecting the eyes with sunglasses, putting them on each time we go out. However, due to the rapid growth of technology and new inventions, we are faced with a large variety of options when buying a new pair of sunglasses. One of the most frequently asked questions concerns polarized lenses: whether they are necessary and justified of its value?

In this article we will try to shed light on the difference between polarized and mirrored lenses.

Polarized Lenses

Solar light is either absorbed or refracted or reflected - depending on the angle from which it falls. However, when the solar rays are reflected by specular surfaces, such as metal or water, they become concentrated and produce a particularly strong glare. Contact with such highlights in the eyes may not only cause severe discomfort, but also lead to instant blindness, as well as serious damage to the eye over time. Such reflections often lead to accidents while driving or managing waterways in bright sunlight.

Polarized lenses include special filters that block the horizontal rays from forming reflections, and thus not only protects the eye from damage, but also ensures clear visibility.

Advantages of Polarized Lenses:

  • Precise and clear visibility
  • Comfortable sun protection
  • Eliminate distortion of visibility regardless of weather conditions
  • Significant decrease in eyestrain
  • Improved visibility in bad weather
  • Eliminate reflective glare

Who is most in need of sunglasses with polarized lenses?

Sunglasses with polarized lenses are especially necessary for those people whose activities are associated with prolonged exposure to the sun or water, since in these cases the eyes are most susceptible to the harmful effects of the sun blinding glare. Fishermen prefer polarized lenses also because visibility in them much clearer, which allows the fish to be seen clearly in the water in any weather.

In today's world, people living in climates with hot and sunny weather prefer to wear sunglasses with polarized lenses to protect their eyes and reduce the burden on them.
