What are polarized sunglasses?  

The lenses of polarized sunglasses are equipped with a polarizing filter.  This means that the filter blocks the glare of sunlight on flat surfaces such as the road, water, or snow.


Why wear polarized sunglasses?

It can be unpleasant to be dazzled by sunlight while driving. It can be disappointing to realize that your new pair of sunglasses does not block glare and that you get dazzled by the reflections of the sun as you drive or attack the ski slopes.

Unfortunately, this occurs often even with sunglasses. This is the reason why sunglasses with polarized lenses can offer you absolute comfort for your vision no matter the situation or setting.
