The worst type of glare is blinding glare. Most over-the-counter sunglasses are ineffective at reducing blinding glare caused by light reflecting surfaces such as water… ice… and snow.
Polarized sun lenses are very effective in eliminating blinding glare. Traditionally thought of as summer essentials, they also provide increased clarity, contrast and depth perception. But they are just as effective in winter, eliminating blinding glare often experienced in snowy and icy conditions. Blinding glare is annoying but is also dangerous especially when driving.
When driving at 50 mph, study participants got an additional 23 feet of stopping distance wearing polarized lenses when compared to those wearing ordinary sunglasses. Studies have proven that driving with polarized lenses is safer.
Not all polarized lenses are equal in quality. Over-the-counter sunglasses that say they are polarized may block some types of Ultra-violet, or UV light rays, but they may not fully protect your eyes from developing cataracts or macular degeneration which have been associated with excessive UV exposure.
Our full spectrum polarized lenses block both UVA and UVB light rays, include scratch protection, and are available in a wide variety of colors and frame styles to compliment your favorite outdoor activity.
Make sure your sunglasses are not only fashionable but that they fully protect your eyes from the negative effects of UV light and provide the vision you need when experiencing dangerous blinding glare.
