It is important to have a convenient pair of sunglasses handy all year long for each member of your family – especially your kiddos! When shopping for the best pair of shades, you should consider the pros and cons of each pair. You want to purchase a pair of sunglasses that provide both safety and comfort for your child, which is a great reason that selecting sunglasses with polarized lenses is key.
So, what exactly are polarized lenses?
This type of lens effectively eliminates blinding glare – horizontal light that is too bright for your eyes to adapt. When this brightness is diminished, you will be able to see more clearly. Most frequently you will notice glare reflecting off shiny surfaces like cars, sand, water, snow and roads – one of the reasons why polarized lenses are perfect for a trip to the beach or a day on the ski slope. Not only does glare make your eyes feel uncomfortable, it can also be dangerous when you are depending on accurate eyesight for your safety.
Why are polarized lenses better than “normal” sunglasses?
When you purchase a pair of standard tinted sunglasses, your glare will be reduced, but not eliminated. Since these “normal” shades filter all forms of light – both horizontal and vertical – your sharpness of vision will be diminished. Polarized lenses allow vertical light to reach your eyes, which is important for clear and focused vision. Other benefits of polarized lenses include enhanced visual comfort, improved contrast, reduced eyestrain and more true perception of color.
