What are polarized lenses for?
What are the advantages of polarized lenses ?
Often, by the sea, while driving or skiing, disturbing or even unbearable sun rays are reflected on shiny surfaces such as snow, the sea or even the road. The effect is very unpleasant and even dangerous!
This reverberation phenomenon comes from horizontal light, and this unfortunate reflection cannot only create visual discomfort but can also cause a potentially blinding glare. This is where the whole need to wear sunglasses with polarized lenses comes in. Indeed, thanks to its characteristics containing chains of molecules all aligned vertically, the polarized lens will make it possible to block the horizontal light and the dangerous glare, ensuring a stable comfort of vision.
In short, in addition to blocking harmful UV like conventional tinted sunglasses, polarizing lens completely eliminates all parasitic light reflections.
Polarized lenses are particularly recommended for:
all nautical activities
like sailing, surfing, fishing, etc ... : thanks to the attenuation of reflections on the water, your viewing comfort is increased and you have a better perception of details beneath the surface (nature of the bottom, fish, etc ...)
all mountain activities
especially on snow: the reflection of the sun in high mountains and / or on snow is particularly strong and harmful, polarized lenses protect you effectively while improving your perception of contrasts and relief.
all outdoor activities
by ensuring increased protection, better visual comfort and reduced eye fatigue, polarized lenses are useful whatever your activity, and for adults as well as for children.
driving on the road
driving safety and comfort are increased, no more dazzling due to the reverberation of the sun and the headlights of cars.
people who are photosensitive or prone to ophthalmic migraines
the protection provided by polarized lenses is clearly superior compared to conventional sunglasses.
Here is, for example, the difference between non-polarized and polarized lens:
