What are Polarized Lenses?

Polarized lenses cut out glare. When the sun emits light, it’s a vertical wavelength. This wavelength then hits shiny, reflective objects such as cars, snow, or water, and rebounds at a horizontal wavelength to cause glare. Polarized glasses have a filter that blocks this horizontal wavelength. This feature is great for everyday sunglasses or if you spend a lot of time on water, and it can work for safety glasses too!

Do I Need Polarized Safety Glasses?

While polarized lenses block glare from the sun, polarization may also affect depth perception. However, not everyone reacts to polarized lenses the same way, so it may or may not be an issue for you.

Getting polarized safety glasses is a matter of personal preference as well as the type of work you do. If you’re someone who works in bright sunlight, a polarized lens may save you from squinting and eye fatigue.

Likewise, if you deal with a lot of shiny metal, polarized glasses are a good thing to have. One caveat, though: You can’t get polarized lenses with all lens tints. For example, you can’t get a clear lens polarized, or polarized Transitions Signature and XTRActive lenses (Vantage and Drivewear are both polarized).
