Polarized Sunglasses FAQs

What are polarized sunglasses?

Polarization is when light waves oscillate in different directions as they move through space. When light is reflected off a perfectly horizontal surface, it mostly gets horizontally polarized. While the light emitted by the sun is unpolarized and scatters in different directions as it bounces off uneven surfaces.

Polarized lenses have a special coating that lines up in horizontal rows across the lens. These molecules absorb polarized light before reaching your eyes.

Essentially polarized sunglasses possess an anti-glare filter that protects your eyes from harmful glare produced by polarized light hitting a flat surface.

This anti-glare filter is the main difference between polarized and non-polarized sunglasses. Although depending on the use of polarized lenses, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are better for your eyes. The main aspect is the visual quality it offers. Polarized sunglasses help protect your eyes from direct light and light reflection for a clearer vision outdoors.

What is the benefit of polarized sunglasses?

If you enjoy outdoor activities, like fishing or skiing, or spend most of your time on a busy road on shiny asphalt you may want to consider a pair of polarized sunglasses.

If you love fishing and being near water, there are great benefits to purchasing a pair of polarized fishing sunglasses. Light will reflect and bounce back from the water’s surface, creating glare that may disturb and damage your eyes if constant. So why not enjoy a great day of fishing while protecting your eyes?! Capture that moment with a big fish in hand as you wear a cool pair of protective polarized sunglasses and a big smile.

In case you prefer an adventurous day out in the snow skiing down Mont Tremblant, you may want to consider a pair of polarized ski goggles. Polarized light also reflects off snow and produces harmful glare that may ruin your day down the slope.

While on the road to the office or a fun road trip across the country, you want your vision to be as clear as possible. It just takes a second for your vision to be disturbed by external factors, including a lovely sunny day. Polarized sunglasses can also make a great fit for driving sunglasses as the anti-glare coating helps block out light and allow for a safer drive.

Any activities that take you outdoors around flat surfaces on a bright sunny day should be accompanied by a pair of polarized sunglasses.

How do polarized sunglasses work?

As mentioned, polarized lenses help reduce and stop the penetration of harmful glare and light into your eyes.

So when light hits a flat surface, like water, asphalt or even glass and metal, it bounces back causing blur. While normal lenses protect from UV rays, they will not filter glare. That’s where polarized sunglasses come into play, the particular coating will filter out the glare, eliminate horizontal lights, and allow for a clear vision.

This particular coating will also allow for increased clarity and enhance contrast, as they make colors appear more vibrant. They can help ease eye strain if you spend long hours outdoors in the sun.

How can I tell if sunglasses are polarized?

The simplest answer is to check the product’s description and search for polarized lenses. But in case you have a random pair of sunglasses lying around and want to know for sure there are a few ways to test:

Take them for a test run on a flat surface and if you do not experience blurry vision, most probably they are polarized sunglasses.
You could also try positioning your polarized sunglasses in front of a black-lit LCD screen. When you turn the lenses they should darken. If you try watching TV or your phone with polarized sunglasses you won’t have much success.

What is the difference between polarized and tinted sunglasses?

The main difference between tinted and polarized sunglasses is that tinted lenses don't offer the anti-glare protection polarized lenses do. Tinted lenses reduce the intensity of light that reaches the eye, but they do not eliminate glare.

What Are Polarized Prescription Sunglasses?

What makes polarized sunglasses so unique is the fact that they have lenses with anti-reflective coating that blocks the brightness as well as glare reflecting off surfaces. The nice thing about choosing this kind of eyewear is that it enhances your vision by making colors appear more vibrant and clearer. Their main purpose however is to reduce glare from the light that happens to be bouncing off a surface such as water or a road or even metal. When you put them on, these polarized shades will improve your visual clarity and they will make things more comfortable in bright conditions.
