Polarised Sun Lenses

Polarised sun lenses offer a visual solution designed to eliminate glare and provide clarity of vision for all manner of users:

  • Drivers
  • Runners
  • Cyclists
  • Golfers
  • Skiers
  • Fishermen
  • Other outdoor sports enthusiasts

Polarised lenses are also ideal for people who are particularly light-sensitive, as well as post-cataract surgery patients who no longer wish to be affected by the low winter sun or sudden glare.

How do polarised sunglass lenses work?

Light waves from the sun travel in many directions but when this sunlight is reflected off a horizontal surface such as a flat road or water, this light becomes horizontally concentrated.

This creates an intensity of light that we experience as glare.  In addition to squinting and eyestrain, glare can cause temporary blindness which can be extremely dangerous whilst driving and makes it very uncomfortable for us to see.  Polarised sun lenses offer the prefect optical solution by blocking out glare and haze, allowing only useful vertical light to enter the eye which in turn offers better focus and clarity of vision.

Key advantages of polarised sunglass lenses:

  • Sharply focused vision
  • Drivers will no longer be affected by sudden glare from wet road surfaces, low winter sun, intense glare from the back of other vehicles
  • Fishing - anglers will be able to 'see through water'
  • Vision in bright sunlight is far less fatiguing
  • Contours become clearer (useful for skiing or snowboarding) as 'hidden' bumps in the snow will be visible

Availability of colours: Grey, Brown & G-15 Green

GREY POLARISED LENSES: Is considered to be the best all-round colour because it enables the wearer to see colours in the most natural way. It is the best lens colour for bright light situations as it 'dims the lights' but does not interfere with the wearer's perception of depth.

BROWN POLARISED LENSES: This is also a great all-purpose lens colour for beautiful, natural tones. As the colour is warmer it enhances skin tones. It also blocks undesirable blue light whilst colours like reds, yellows and greens are accentuated, but not exaggerated. 

G-15 GREEN POLARISED LENSES: Green sharpens visual definition and enhances depth perception. Great for variable light conditions and therefore can be worn at dusk and dawn. It is ideal for overcast conditions or shaded areas but is not recommended for prolonged bright conditions - try Grey polarised lenses for this.
