Polarised sunglasses have been popular for years with boaters and fishermen who need to reduce reflected glare from the water surrounding them.
But now that many others who spend time outdoors have discovered the benefits of polarised lenses, interest in these types of sunglasses has soared.
Besides boaters, outdoor enthusiasts who benefit the most from polarised sunglasses include skiers, bikers, golfers and joggers, all who may enjoy a clearer view along with elimination of glare.
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.
Polarised sunglasses also can be worn indoors by light-sensitive people, including post-cataract surgery patients and those continually exposed to bright light through windows.
Another beneficial lens treatment is an invisible dye that blocks ultraviolet (UV) light. Just as sunscreen keeps the sun’s UV rays from harming your skin, UV-protective treatments for eyeglass lenses block those same rays from damaging your eyes.
Overexposure to ultraviolet light is thought to be a cause of cataracts, retinal damage and other eye problems.
Regular plastic eyeglass lenses block most UV light, but adding a UV-blocking dye boosts UV protection to 100 percent for added safety. Other eyeglass lens materials, including polycarbonate and most high-index plastics, have 100 percent UV protection built-in, so an extra lens treatment is not required for these lenses.
Photochromic lenses also block 100 percent of the sun’s UV rays without the need for an added UV lens treatment. Source: www.allaboutvision.com
