Everything You Need to Know about Polarized Sunglasses


Imagine a sun-soaked day at the beach, where sparkling waves crash against the shore and the golden sand glistens under the radiant sun. However, this scene's brilliance can be marred by the intense glare that dances off the water and other reflective surfaces. That's where polarized sunglasses come to the rescue. Designed to tame this unruly glare and provide 100% UVB and UVA protection, GLAS lenses shield your eyes from visual discomfort, allowing you to immerse yourself fully in the moment without squinting or straining your eyes.

Curious to learn more about polarized sunglasses and how they can enhance your visual experience? We've got you covered with some commonly asked questions and expert answers about these remarkable eyewear companions.

What are polarized sunglasses?

Polarized sunglasses are specially designed eyewear that helps reduce glare and improve visual clarity. They feature a unique lens technology that filters out horizontally polarized light, such as glare reflected from water, snow, or flat surfaces. By doing so, polarized sunglasses provide better visual comfort and contrast and reduce eye strain.

When should I wear polarized glasses?

Sunglasses with polarized lenses are highly recommended in situations with excessive glare from reflective surfaces like water, snow, or glass. They are especially beneficial for outdoor activities such as water sports, driving in bright conditions, and spending time at the beach or coastal areas.

How do polarized sunglasses reduce glare?

GLAS polarized sunglasses feature a special filter that blocks horizontally polarized light, which is responsible for glare. This filter allows only vertically oriented light to pass through, significantly reducing glare and enhancing visual comfort.

Can polarized sunglasses improve color perception?

Polarized sunglasses can enhance color perception by reducing the intensity of glare. By reducing glare, the actual colors of your surroundings become more vibrant and vivid, providing a more accurate representation of the environment.

Are GLAS polarized sunglasses suitable for people with sensitive eyes?

GLAS polarized sunglasses are an excellent choice for individuals with sensitive eyes. The polarized lenses reduce eye strain caused by excessive light and glare, making them comfortable to wear for extended periods.
