How to Polarized Lenses Work

If you enjoy spending time outside, then polarized lenses should be your first choice when choosing sun protection for your eyes.

Polarized lenses offer exceptional glare blocking protection whether you are on the golf course or the water. They also offer excellent glare protection while driving by adding an extra level of sun reflection behind the windshield.

Polarized sunglasses take sun protection to the next level, designed with special filters that eliminate or significantly reduce intense glare, reflecting it away from your eyes to minimize discomfort.

The benefits of polarized lenses are apparent from the outset for wearers.

Polarized lenses also provide high contrast for enhanced clarity of vision, making images appear sharper and better defined.

No matter what your visual needs are, these sunglass lenses can be easily adapted for you, suitable for the majority of prescriptions and available as a non-prescription option.
