Polarized Glasses

Polarized Glasses 101 from Carolina Vision Care

Polarized sunglasses reduce the glare off of surfaces like snow, water, and glass. They are perfect for driving, when playing sports, and fishing because they allow for clearer vision in bright, sunny environments. At Carolina Vision Care, we are happy to help you decide whether polarized sunglasses would be the right fit for your lifestyle.

How Polarized Glasses Work

Polarization, a virtually invisible filter, can be placed into your lenses to eliminate the amount of reflecting light that enters the eye. Polarized lenses not only reduce glare, they make images look crisper and clearer, making details easier to see. Polarized lenses can be worn by both prescription and non-prescription sunglass wearers.

People who wear polarized lenses for long stretches of time often say they are less tired than usual after hours of battling the glare from the sun. Those who enjoy North Carolina’s rivers and ocean waters find that polarized lenses drastically cut down the intense glare and help them to see better into the water.

It is important to keep in mind that if your sunglasses are labeled as blocking the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, it does not necessarily mean that they are polarized too. Polarized lenses will be labeled as such.
