Why Should I Get Polarized Sunglasses with Prescription?

Before we reveal why you would want polarized prescription sunglasses, let’s first review how polarized lenses work.

Glare is created when vertical sunlight hits off a horizontal surface. This reflected light is otherwise known as blinding glare and is commonly found around bodies of water, bright roads, and snow.

Polarized lenses use a chemical treatment to eliminate glare. This treatment is applied in a vertical pattern on the lens to block the horizontal light, which reveals greater visual clarity and contrast. Polarized lenses also combat the risks associated with glare such as reduced visibility, distorted color, and eye strain.

In addition to a more comfortable visual experience, prescription polarized sunglasses will give you the optical boost you need to enjoy the view. Tailor-made to your prescription needs, you’ll achieve greater definition without compromising on glare-defense.
