Why Wear Polarized Glasses and Do I Need Them?
Polarized glasses have a special chemical applied to them to filter light and reduce glare. Glare distorts images, especially underwater, on the road, and the playing field on a sunny day. When you wear polarized glasses, you can see brightly illuminated objects more clearly. You can have more fun outdoors and drive more safely. Here are three are a few things our eye doctor at Epic Vision Eye Center, serving Smithville, Kansas City, MO, and the surrounding areas, would like you to know about polarized glasses.
What are Polarized Glasses?
Polarized glasses have a special chemical coating that filters glare on surfaces. This means that polarized glasses help reduce glare caused by snow, glass, water, and more. This makes polarized glasses an excellent option for those that spend a lot of time outside. Outdoor activities like hunting and fishing become much easier with polarized lenses.
Do I Need Polarized Glasses?
Everyone can benefit from polarized glasses. They are useful in enhancing your vision and coordination in direct sunlight, making them useful for driving. If you think you would benefit from polarized lenses, but need glasses to see, talk to our eye doctor. We can get you the perfect pair of polarized prescription sunglasses to complement both your personal style and your lifestyle.
Because of their light-filtering properties, it will be difficult to see images on LCD screens when wearing polarized glasses. Keep this in mind when viewing your car dashboard controls. Also, keep in mind that polarized lenses do not necessarily block the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. If glasses block UV rays, they will be labeled as such.
