Quality sunglasses are certainly important, particularly if you spend a reasonable amount of time outdoors. Without adequate protection the suns rays, glare and UV can all damage your vision slowly and imperceptibly. But which pair of sunglasses is right for you and your needs?
Have you tried polarising lenses? In everyday life: outdoors, while driving… you will benefit from the best quality of vision with the lowest glare. Whether you're a fan of winter sports, sailing or other outdoor activities, whatever the season, you won't want to leave home without them!
When light is reflected from a flat surface: road, water, snow, ice… it becomes polarised. This glare, with its specific properties, is extremely dazzling, uncomfortable on the eyes and can not only impair your vision but also damage your eyes. The best way to block it is to use a polarising filter in front of your eyes.
Normal tinted lenses reduce light. But polarised lenses eliminate reflected glare, thus improving visual comfort and safety. They also restore the richness of colours in your environment.
Polarising is available in most prescription sunglasses. This means you can purchase a new pair of high quality sunglasses with your health fund picking up most of the cost!
