Polarized Sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses are used to reduce glare from reflective surfaces such as snow, water, glass and shiny surfaces.
If your eyes are sensitive to light from windows you can also use polarized sunglasses indoors to reduce the glare from that bright window.

Polarized sunglasses are excellent for the sport enthusiast. If you bike, jog, boat, water ski, golf or enjoy any other activity outside, a polarized pair of sunglasses should be covering your eyes.

Polarized lenses act by reducing or removing the horizontally polarized light rays that are reflected from shiny surfaces by vertically oriented polarizer's in the lens.

You can also get a polarized photo chromatic lens, the ones that change from light to dark when exposed to sunlight, for those of you active people that are constantly going from indoors to outdoors.
