10 reasons why polarised sunglasses are important for eye protection

  1. Reduce glare: Polarized lenses reduce glare from surfaces such as water, snow, and pavement, which can cause eye strain and fatigue, this can be especially important for outdoor activities like fishing, boating, skiing or driving.
  2. Improve visibility: Polarized lenses can also enhance colour and improve contrast, making it easier to see objects and details in bright light conditions.
  3. UV protection: Polarized sunglasses are designed to block out harmful UV rays, which can cause damage to the eyes, including cataracts, macular degeneration and photokeratitis, a condition that causes sunburned eyes.
  4. Protect against glare-induced squinting: Squinting in bright light conditions can cause wrinkles, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Polarized sunglasses can prevent this by reducing glare, so the need to squint is greatly reduced.
  5. Reduce glare reflections on water: Polarized sunglasses are perfect for activities like fishing, boating or swimming, as they can reduce glare reflections on the water surface and make it easier to see below the surface.
  6. Improve depth perception: Polarized lenses can improve depth perception by cutting through glare, making it easier to gauge distances and obstacles.
  7. Offer glare protection for snow sports: Glare from snow can cause eye fatigue and strain, polarized sunglasses can provide protection from this type of glare and enhance visibility on snow.
  8. Protect against HEV light: High-Energy Visible light, also known as blue light, emitted by electronic devices and the sun, can cause damage to the eyes over time. Polarized lenses can block out a significant amount of HEV light.
  9. Enhance visual acuity: Polarized lenses can help to sharpen visual acuity, making it easier to see fine details and patterns. This can be especially important for activities such as horse riding, where visual acuity is crucial.
  10. Stylish and versatile: Polarized sunglasses come in a variety of styles and can be worn in many different settings, whether you are on the water, in the mountains, or simply enjoying a day out. They are both functional and stylish.
