Do you participate in any of these activities: boating, fishing, skiing, golfing, biking and jogging? If your answer is yes, you need to get a pair of polarized sunglasses!
Besides the ability to reduce glare of the water and snow, these types of sunglasses are great for driving and can even be worn indoors by light-sensitive people, including people that had cataract surgery.
While most light scatters in all directions, reflected light, such as light reflected from water travels in a more horizontal type direction. By this happening, your eyes can experience an intense amount of extra light, which we experience as glare. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks certain types of reflected light, which causes a reduction in glare.
