Polarized lenses have become the first choice for anyone interested in a comfortable and attractive sun lens. The principle of polarized light reduction is best illustrated by thinking of a polarized lens as a Venetian blind. The blind blocks light at certain angles while allowing light to transmit through selected angles.

Tint Versus Polarized
Although darkly tinted sunglasses may reduce brightness, they do not remove glare like a polarized lens. Tinted lenses do not remove glare or block out harmful UV. Polarized lenses solve both problems by eliminating glare and filtering out harmful ultraviolet light because the filter reduces the polarized glare and also has ultraviolet absorbing properties. Today’s polarized lenses represent the best sunwear and outdoor lifestyle options available.
