The Benefits of Polarized Sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses have long been used by boaters and fishermen for their amazing ability to reduce the sun's glare reflected off the water's surface. The benefits of these lenses are quickly catching on as more and more people are using them for all their outdoor sunglass needs.

When light is reflected off a smooth surface, such as water or a road, the light is usually polarized in a horizontal manner. Polarized sunglasses combat this glare by blocking light with their vertically polarized filters. This filter reducing the amount of light reflected into the eye and improves visibility and clarity of objects.

Polarized sunglasses are perfect for most outdoor activity such as skiing, golfing, biking or even jogging. Anytime that you need to block glare a pair of polarized lenses can improve your outdoor sight. You can also get polarized lenses in various tints that will further improve your visibility depending on the lighting conditions.
