EyeSave Tip: Wearing sunglasses is a great way to increase visibility while driving on sunny days and protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. However, did you know that some lenses are better for minimizing glare than others?
There's a true science behind polarized lenses. When light is reflected off a smooth surface like a flat road or water, it becomes polarized horizontally. The polarized light can cause eyestrain and fatigue. So polarized lenses, such that are used in Spy Optics sunglasses, use a filter that blocks out that reflective light and allow the desired amount of light to pass through.
Polarized lenses are great for out-of-doors, but they can also be used indoors by those sensitive to light, including patients who have just had cataract surgery or have had their eyes dilated by the optometrist.
