Polarised Sun Lenses

Polarised Sun Lenses

Polarised sun lenses are a visual solution offering a clearer view along with elimination of glare for all manner of users, from outdoor sports enthusiasts, including runners, cyclists, golfers, skiers and fisherman but are also increasingly used more by drivers, light-sensitive people and post-cataract surgery patients.

How Do Polarised Lenses Work?

Horizontally polarised light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water is not scattered in all directions in the usual way, instead it travels in a more horizontally oriented direction. This creates an intensity of light that we experience as glare and makes it very difficult and uncomfortable for us to see. In addition to squinting and eyestrain, glare can cause temporary blindness which can be very dangerous whilst driving.

Polarized sung lenses block out glare and haze, allowing only useful vertical light to enter the eye which in turn offers better visual acuity . Key advantages include more sharply focused vision; contours become clearer (very useful when skiing); vision in bright sunlight is perceived as considerably less fatiguing and therefore, more relaxing.

Availability of colours: Grey, Brownand G-15 Green


Grey -  considered to be the all round purpose colour because it enables the wearer to see ‘natural’ colours. It is the best lens colour for bright light situations as it ‘dims the lights’ but does not interfere with the wearer’s depth perception.                                  
Brown – also a great all purpose lens. They are warmer and therefore enhance skin tones. Brown also blocks undesirable blue light whilst colours like reds, yellows and greens are accentuated, but not exaggerated. 

Green – Great for varying light conditions and therefore can be worn at dusk and dawn. Green sharpens visual definition and enhances depth perception. It is ideal for overcast conditions or shaded areas. It is not recommended for prolonged bright conditions.
