All about polarised lenses
Why you should consider getting polarised lenses for better and clearer vision
Created in the 1920s by scientist and founder of Polaroid, Edwin Land, polarised lenses are the recommended choice by experts for ensuring good vision while out in the sun. Polarised lenses are known to reduce glare and protect from UV exposure, giving you clearer vision. Glare is caused by horizontal light rays hitting reflective surfaces like the road or water.
Light travels in different directions. While vertical light is useful and has no real effect on our vision, it’s the horizontal light that causes glare. When this light hits reflective surfaces like the road or water, Polarised lenses are able to block horizontal light thanks to a special filter that only allows vertical light to pass through. Our diagram below demonstrates how it works.
Polarised lenses make simple tasks like driving, cycling and spending time with family easy, as you’re able to see clearly. Plus, not just great for summer, polarised lenses work well all year round as glare and UV exposure can still be a problem in low season.
