Polarized lenses are an outstanding and extremely helpful feature that reduces the sun’s glare thereby increasing visibility. This beneficial feature also protects the eye from the sun’s ultra violet rays. If you spend a majority of your time outside, you should certainly consider this lens feature.
Polarized sunglasses have been popular for years with boaters and fishermen who need to reduce reflected glare from the water surrounding them. Once the general public discovered their glare-reducing benefits, polarized shades became very popular among people simply seeking quality sun protection for their eyes. Besides boaters, outdoor enthusiasts who benefit the most from polarized sunglasses include skiers, bikers, golfers and joggers, all who may enjoy a clearer view along with elimination of glare. For most other sports and activities, polarized sunglasses offer great advantages. These sunglasses can be used for driving and, in fact, can reduce glare from a long, flat surface such as the hood of the car or the road’s surface. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare.
Polarized sunglasses also can be worn indoors by light-sensitive people, including post-cataract surgery patients and those continually exposed to bright lights. The precision in vision that it offers can prevent accidents that result in injuries. Exposing your eyes to direct sunlight can cause extreme harm to your sight. And today, many polarized lenses are available in combination with other features that can enhance outdoor experiences.
Anti-Reflective lens coating offers superior vision to everyone who wears eyewear. The coating is placed on the surface of a lens. The purpose of the coating is to reduce glare which can cause mild headaches, discomfort and obstruct vision. When it comes to vision, it is most advantageous to have this coating applied for the purpose of reducing glare from computer use and night driving. It will eliminate the eye fatigue and eyestrain which is caused while working, for long periods of time, on the computer. The coating also enhances night vision from glare that is produced from on coming traffic, traffic lights and signs.
Anti-Reflective lens coating also has a cosmetic advantage which allows no glare from light to be visible on your actual lenses, making your eyeglasses appear as if there are no lenses in the frame. The coating is an outstanding feature for photos. It reduces the glare from the cameras flash, once again making your eyewear appear as if there are no lenses in the frame. Anti-Reflective coating is a lens feature we highly recommend because of the benefits it offers. Just be sure to have a good lens cleaning cloth, particularly one that is made for anti-reflective coating (ARC).
