Not all sunglasses are created equal. Some sunglasses are polarized, some are not. Unless you are extremely pressed for cash, we would proffer an advice: get a polarized pair of sunglasses.
Polarized sunglasses help prevent eye strain in glaring sunlight. Here are the differences between polarized sunglasses from non-polarized sunglasses:
- Shades with polarized lenses will help reduce the glare from the sun and reflected light. Whether you are exercising outdoors and driving, a pair of polarized sunglasses is indispensable. This is especially true if you’re spending time on a snowy mountain. The reduced glare will minimize eye strain, so that you don’t have to squint your eyes. Definitely makes for a much greater outdoor experience, wouldn’t you say?
- Polarized sunglasses also help improve colour contrast and perception, resulting in greater comfort and clearer vision. The increased clarity makes for crisper view of the surroundings.
- Sunglasses with polarized lenses help you to see into the water. Whether you’re into sea sports or fishing, this is a must-have if you’re into activities over water.
- Drivers wearing polarized sunglasses experience improved safety as the coating on such glasses provide greater contrast. This is especially helpful in hazy or foggy driving conditions. Additionally, studies have shown that drivers wearing polarized sunglasses have better reaction time with an additional 8 m of stopping distance compared with those who didn’t. This is critical in an emergency.
- Non-polarized sunglasses merely reduces the amount of light entering your eyes without real protection. They also do not help in cutting out glare, which is very helpful when engaging in fast-paced activities, such as running.
