What are polarized sunglasses?

Sunglasses with polarized lenses eliminate glare by blocking light that would typically enter your eyes after reflecting off a surface. Also, polarized lenses provide you with the best visual performance and clarity during outdoor activities and are particularly beneficial for driving, skiing, cycling and golfing. Polarized lenses even allow you to see through the surface of the water, which is especially beneficial for fishing or watersports.

Polarized sunglasses offer premium protection from UV light and provide you with crisper, truer and more vivid color perception.

Polarized lenses are uniquely created with a thin coating over the surface of the lens. This coating is applied with advanced technology compared to the basic tinting process of non-polarized lenses.

Also, polarized sunglasses are available in a variety of colors to best match your visual preference and style. In fact, grey or brown lenses can increase your contrast while driving while yellow lenses are more beneficial for activities like fishing, hunting or cycling.
