Polarized Lenses are A Good Investment
Why Polarized sunglasses?
There are two types of glare caused by sunlight. The first type occurs when we look directly at the sun. This direct glare can be reduced to comfortable levels by regular sunglasses.
The Second type of sun glare occurs when sunlight reflects off a flat surface. This highly concentrated, reflected light is polarized and causes reflective glare. This reflective glare is a major cause of headaches, eyestrain and reduced vision outdoors. Only polarized sunglasses can eliminate reflective glare.
Photochromatic lenses (that darken automatically in the sunlight) are a convenient way to keep your eyes more comfortable in changing lighting conditions. But like regular sunglass lenses, photochromatic lenses lack polarization; therefore, can not effectively block reflective glare. Photochromatic lenses do not darken behind a car windshield.
Polarized sun lenses are the only lenses for outdoor wear that provide total protection from UV exposure and effectively block reflective glare. Polarized sun lenses also enhance color saturation and contrast to provide exceptionally crisp, clear, comfortable vision for driving, sports, and all outdoor activities.
Keep A Second Pair Of Eyeglasses For Outdoors
Why a Separate Pair of Eyeglasses for Outdoors?
Too much sun causes discomfort. Though our eyes can adjust to a wide range of light intensity, sunlight can be up to 20 times brighter than what our eyes prefer for comfortable vision. This excessive brightness causes eyestrain and headaches.
Sun glare can be dangerous. Direct sunlight and sunlight reflecting off flat objects (like car windshields) causes glare that can blind us to hazards on the road ahead.
UV rays are harmful. Overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays have been linked with cataracts and other eye health problems. UV also causes premature wrinkling and aging of the delicate skin around the eyes.
Regular Eyeglasses are not enough. Regular eyeglasses can not protect our eyes from the excessive brightness and potentially dangerous glare caused by sunlight. Only high quality polarized sunglasses can provide the required levels of vision, comfort, and safety outdoors.
POLARIZED POLYCARBONATE, THE ULTIMATE OUTDOOR LENS
Why Polarized Polycarbonate Sun Lenses?
Superior glare reduction. High quality polarized polycarbonate lenses offer true sunglass performance, blocking 100% of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays and 85% of visible light to provide clear, comfortable vision in direct sunlight. The best polarized polycarbonate lenses have the highest polarizing efficiency rating among any sun lenses on the market to virtually eliminate dangerous reflective glare. For example, a high quality grey polarized polycarbonate lens can eliminate 99% of reflective glare.
Superior visual acuity. By eliminating both direct and reflective glare, polarized polycarbonate lenses provide increased depth perception and visual clarity.
Superior color vision. Polarized polycarbonate lenses reduce the intensity of sunlight to the level required for optimum color vision. Polarized polycarbonate lenses are available in brown and in a neutral gray color that provides the most accurate color perception.
Superior scratch resistance. Some polarized polycarbonate lenses feature a thermal-cured hard coat giving them a Bayer scratch resistance ration that is up to five times higher than other sun lenses (higher Bayer ratio = greater scratch resistance).
Superior durability. Some manufacturers use a patented manufacturing process that completely encapsulates a high efficiency polarizing filter within the lens to protect it from fading, scratching, peeling or chipping. The lens can then be further protected with a thermal-cured hard coat to make lenses that are the most durable prescription sunglass lenses on the market.
Superior safety. Polarized polycarbonate lenses are 10 times more impact resistant than glass or plastic polarized lenses. They can withstand the impact of a 135 MPH baseball without shattering.
Thinner and lighter. Some polarized polycarbonate lenses can be processed to a center thickness of 1.0 mm, making them up to 50% thinner than other prescription polarized lenses. And polarized polycarbonate lenses are less than half the weight of glass polarized lenses. With polarized polycarbonate lenses, you can experience all the advantages of prescription polarized sunglasses outdoors and enjoy the same lightweight comfort and style of today's thinner, lighter, clear polycarbonate lenses.
Choice of colors. Polarized polycarbonate lenses are available in grey and brown tints. Some manufacturers even make polarized polycarbonate lenses with factory mirror coatings colors like blue, silver, and gold.
Choice of lens designs and AR coating. Most polarized polycarbonate lenses can be AR coated and are available in single vision, progressive and D28 bifocal designs.
