What Are Polarized Sunglasses?
Polarized sunglasses reduce glare from reflective surfaces. Polarized lenses have a special film to reduce harsh glare, which can distort your view, blur your vision and may cause eye strain. Tinted non-polarized lenses look very similar to polarized lenses, but only polarized lenses contain additional lens technology for anti-glare sunglasses. Both polarized and non-polarized sunglasses contain 100% UVA/UVB protection, also called UV 400 protection, which guards from the sun’s UVA and UVB radiation waves.

Yesglasses offers prescription Rx sunglasses so that you can wear your polarized sunglasses comfortably without contacts. Polarized sunglasses can also be worn indoors by patients who just took eye surgeries like post-cataract surgery.
What Color Polarized Lenses Are Best?
The best color for your polarized lenses depends on your lifestyle and fashion taste.
Fishing sunglasses are best suited with brown polarized lenses for higher contrast and anti-glare. If you plan to spend time by the water, such as on a boat or along the coast, your eyes will be at greater risk from glare. This glare may prevent you from looking into the water, which is why it’s important to wear polarized sunglasses with contrast while fishing.
Driving sunglasses are also best suited with polarized lenses in either brown, green or gray. While driving in your car, glare from passing vehicles can be distracting. Brown, green and gray lenses help soothe your eyes with natural hues on long road trips.
Polarized sunglasses have been popular for years among outdoor activity enthusiasts, and we highly recommend polarized lenses for everyone who is getting a pair of nice sunglasses for the summer time.
How To Tell If Sunglasses Are Polarized?
You can tell if your sunglasses are polarized by holding your sunglasses against glare and rotating them.
The special polarized film on your lenses is designed to block light waves on an angle. When looking through your lens at glare from the sun, if the light becomes darker or lighter while rotating the lenses, then your polarized sunglasses are doing their job.
