Have you ever heard of polarized sunglasses? These sunglasses are popular with fisherman and boaters. Skiers, bikers and golfers may also benefit from these sunglasses as they eliminate the glare. Polarized sunglasses may also be used if you are driving. The lenses can remove the glare from a flat surface like the hood of the car or the road.
Sunlight that is reflected off a horizontal flat surface will bounce back in the same fashion, horizontally. This can cause visual discomfort and a possible blinding glare. Intense glare can be dangerous especially while driving either on the road or water. Polarized lenses have a special filter that only lets the vertical glare to pass through. Polarized lenses eliminate glare. Wearing these lenses will reduce eye strain or eye fatigue that can be associated with reflections and glare.
While there are many pros to wearing polarized sunglasses, you should also be aware of the cons of wearing them too. Viewing LCD screens, such as your cell phone or dashboard control, may be difficult as it makes some of the screen disappear from certain angles. Viewing an ATM screen may also be a challenge as well.
Polarized sunglasses are more expensive than regular sunglasses because of the way they are manufactured. If you enjoy fishing, boating, biking or just being outdoors in the sun, polarized sunglasses are a great investment. They provide comfort and protect your eyes while you get to do all the fun things you enjoy outside.
