Once considered a specialty lens that was geared for activities such as fishing, boating, and other water and snow sports, polarized lenses are now the preferred choice by the patient as well as by the ophthalmic professional as the leading lens for sunglasses.
Polarized lenses are made from a special polarizing film that is applied in the factory on the front surface of the lens. This film allows light rays to be filtered, consequently improving the vision in strong light conditions. Polarized lenses will protect you from UV rays, glare and intense light. In combination with a reflection-free coating, polarized lenses are ideal for fishing and driving.
Polarized lenses are the only sun lenses that:
