The main purpose of polarized sunglasses is to eliminate harsh glare that affects your visual comfort and abilities. When sunlight hits horizontal or shiny surfaces, it creates an intense reflected light that distorts color, reduces visibility, and strains your eyes. A polarized lens has multiple layers to filter the glare; enhancing color, clarity, and visual comfort.
If you spend a lot of time outdoors or driving, polarized sunglasses will keep your eyes healthy and protected. They’ll even give you an advantage in certain environments, like an ocean or lake, where they help you see below the surface and in greater detail.
Every brand on the market offers polarized lenses, but each brand utilizes a lens technology specific to their mission. Below you can find detailed information about some of the top brands’ most advanced polarized lens technologies:
