Why should I choose polarized sunglasses over traditional sunglasses?

Sunlight provides a wide range of benefits to us but can also cause serious vision problems. The sun can glare brightly off of the snow, smooth water, or flat roads blinding you. This dangerous glare can cause accidents, snow blindness, and could even result in sunburn of the eyes. If your eyes are exposed to sun glare for long periods of time, the damage could also result in cataracts.

Protecting your eyes from the sun is crucial to maintaining healthy eyes, so it is essential to choose the most effective option to ensure your eyes receive the protection they need. Polarized lenses are a great way to shield your eyes against the dangers of intense sun glare.

Benefits of Using Polarized Lenses

  | Dittman EyecareUnlike traditional sunglasses, polarized lenses contain a special built-in filter that blocks the intense reflected light of the sun, eliminating this damaging light from entering the eye. With the reduced glare, you can spend time outdoors with increased comfort and visibility, making daily activities such as driving, safer.

This type of lens not only reduces harmful glare but can also help images appear clearer and sharper. Polarized lenses are available for both prescription and non-prescription sunglasses. These lenses can also be work indoors by light-sensitive people, post-cataract surgery patients and people who are continuously exposed to bright sunlight through the windows.

UV Protection for Healthy Eyes

In addition to providing comfort and better visibility, many polarized sunglasses also offer UV protection, which is crucial for maintaining healthy eyesight. Protecting our eyes from UV rays is just as important as protecting our skin, so it is critical to use lenses that will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays.

Customize Your Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses are a versatile lens option that can be customized to suit your unique vision needs. These lenses can be used for bifocal and progressive lens sunglasses. You can also choose from a variety of coatings such as anti-reflective and anti-scratch to keep your glasses looking and functioning at their best.
