Sunglasses make you look stylish effortlessly. But while you’re enjoying their trendy advantages, why not get a pair that doesn't only look good on you but also improves your vision health? Polarized sunglasses do that for you and your eyes. Here are 4 reasons why you should switch to polarized sunglasses:
To protect your eyes from glare
When the sun’s rays bounce off of reflective surfaces such as windows, water, snow, or your car’s side mirror, it will send light back to your eyes causing you to squint or to temporary prevent you from seeing other things in the background.
Polarized sunglasses eliminate glare by blocking rays coming from the horizontal plane. This will allow you to properly see the road or the ocean ahead of you without being affected by glare.
To lessen eye discomfort
If you are driving or sailing for a few hours on a sunny day, you might experience eye fatigue from squinting and adjusting to glare. Frequent exposure to glare can lead to eye discomfort, irritation, and migraines.
Wearing polarized sunglasses prevents eye fatigue and can help make driving, sailing, or engaging in other sports activities to be a more comfortable experience.
Prevent developing eye problems due to sun exposure
Staying out under the sun while on the beach is relaxing but make sure to protect, not only your skin, but your eyes too from harmful UV rays. Excessive sun exposure can increase your chances of developing cataracts, cancer, or macular degeneration.
Even on a cloudy day, the sun’s rays still permeate through the clouds. Don’t look at the sun directly and wear a hat and sunglasses each time you’re going out.
See things clearer
Have you tried comparing your vision when wearing polarized sunglasses versus a non-polarized pair? If you haven’t yet, try going out on a sunny day and see the difference. A non-polarized lens helps reduce the brightness but it does not block the glare. With polarized glasses, objects become sharper, clearer, and displays improved contrast.
