Polarised lenses help to block out blinding glare from the sun providing you with clearer vision on sunny days. They also provide better colour perception and enhanced contrast when outdoors. Polarised sunnies are perfect for driving as they reduce glare-causing reflections from flat surfaces like the car bonnet or road surface on a hot day.
How do they work?
When light hits flat surfaces it tends to travel in a more uniform direction, usually horizontally. When this type of light is reflected it causes glare and reduces visibility. Polarised lenses have a filter that blocks this reflected light and thereby reduces glare.
We use sunblock for our skin so why don’t we also protect our eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays? Too much UV exposure can cause cataracts as well as destroy your retina, the lining at the back of your eyes that helps you to see clearly. UV coating on lenses helps to reduce the amount of harmful radiation reaching your eyes.
Up to 50% of UV radiation penetrating the eyes is reflected off the back surface of your lenses as most UV lenses only protect your eyes from the front of your glasses. At Health Partners, we use Crizal UV lenses which also reduce the amount of UV radiation reflected from behind the lens. Crizal UV lenses are the only prescription lenses endorsed by the Cancer Council.
Prescription sunnies are a great alternative to contact lenses providing clear outdoor vision and protection on a sunny day. They’re also a more comfortable option for beach days when your eyes can become watery or itchy fighting against sand, water, wind and UV rays.
