Have you noticed that when you wear sunglasses, they might not seem to help with glare? If so, it may be time to consider polarized lenses. These lenses can help reduce glare from light and sun, which can also limit eyestrain. They also can improve your vision and keep you safe when outdoors. If you have ever been outside and become blinded by the glare, these may be an ideal option for you. If you live in Loves Park, IL, visit us at Wight Eye Care to see if polarized lenses are right for you.
What Are Polarized Glasses?
Polarized lenses have been treated with a special type of chemical that allows them to filter light. The molecules of the chemical line up in a specific way to prevent some amount of light from getting through the lens. This filtration creates a special opening for the light to pass through. Only the rays that filter through to your eyes correctly can come through the opening. This means that the lens blocks much of the light from bouncing off objects and coming into your eye. As a result, these lenses are often darker but help you see objects much clearer and crisper.
When Should I Use Polarized Glasses?
While you can wear polarized glasses at any time, there are some specific times when they are most helpful. When you are fishing or boating, polarized lenses are a good choice to help reduce the glare from the water. In addition, these lenses help you reduce eyestrain. Reducing glare can be especially important if you play sports because doing so can help you preform. When skiing or playing in the snow, polarized lenses are ideal for reducing glare and helping you see better.
