Why wear polarized sunglasses?

Polarized sunglasses reduce glare, it's that simple. Polarized lenses have always been popular with fishermen and boaters, but have recently become useful during other outdoor activities like skiing and golfing. The polarized lenses help reduce glare, which can be a real problem in water sports and many other outdoor activities. Choose polarized lenses if you are outside in high glare situations a lot. Our sunglasses store OptiLine provides a variety of polarized sunglasses styles to fit your every mood.

Why are polarized sunglasses better than conventional sunglasses?

Normal sunglasses decrease the intensity of everything by the same amount. Polarized sunglasses can selectively eliminate the reflection from different light sources.

How do polarized lenses work?

Sunglasses models with polarized lenses are made of Polaroid polarized plastic sheeting. They reduce glare caused by light reflected from polarizing surfaces such as water as well as by polarized diffuse sky radiation (skylight). This can be especially useful when fishing, for which the ability to see beneath the surface of the water is crucial.

Polarized eyewear lenses are made from a special film that is applied to the lens during manufacture. This polarizing film works as a filter for light rays, especially those from reflected light. The reflected light is typically horizontally polarized, and polarized lenses act to counter this with vertical polarization. Polarized Sunglasses have the same UV400 protection as non-polarized lenses.
