Many people wait for the first bright, sunny day to pick up a new pair of sunglasses. However, leaving eye protection to the last second can often result in buying cheap, flimsy frames. And while the sticker stuck to the lenses may claim to have 100% UV protection, these off-the-rack sunnies may be doing more damage than nothing at all.
Moreover, once you decide that you want to spend a little more to get a better block between you and harmful UV rays, the choices can seem confusing and overwhelming, particularly when it comes to polarized lenses.
Polarised lenses are different from regular sunglasses in many different ways. They can offer benefits regarding visual comfort, UV protection and is stylish and versatile. In this blog, we’ll discuss why you should choose a pair of polarised lenses for your summer holiday.
Why you need polarised lenses?
Polarized lenses are an excellent option for everyone, including children. If you’re working outdoors, especially when doing high-glare activities around water or snow. However, polarized lenses help reduce glare and provide additional clarity while keeping your eyes protected. Moreover, there are many different options for protecting your eyes, and polarized lenses are just one possibility. But, just like protecting your skin if you’re spending hours in the sun, your eyes need protection as well.
Benefits of wearing polarized sunglasses
Reduced glare and reflection
The main feature that sets polarised lenses apart from regular sunglasses is the ability to reduce glare. Glare is caused by reflective sunlight that bounces off of flat surfaces, which can reflect into your eyes and cause severe discomfort.
For clearer vision, especially in bright light.
Polarized lenses work by reducing glare from bright light off reflective surfaces and slightly increasing contrast, so they should make it easier to see things clearly in bright sunlight. However, polarization can often make it more difficult to see screens than through regular tinted lenses.
