See without being dazzled with polarised lenses

All sunglasses are designed to reduce brightness, but glare from the sun can still cause eye strain, squinting or even temporary blindness - which can be particularly hazardous whilst driving. To avoid this, Vision Express recommend polarised lenses, which provide 100% protection from glare and block 100% of UV rays.

How do Polarised lenses work?

Visible light waves from the sun travel in all directions. When sunlight reflects off a horizontal surface, like a road or water, it often becomes concentrated horizontally. This is known as glare.

Vertical light is useful to the human eye, but glare masks useful light, making it difficult and uncomfortable to see. Polarised lenses block glare and allow only useful vertical light to enter the eye and are especially useful for activities such as driving, skiing and fishing.

Polarised Lenses are ideal for:

  • Fishing - anglers will be able to see 'through' the water.
  • Skiing or snowboarding - skiers will begin to see 'hidden' bumps in the snow.
  • Driving - drivers will no longer be affected by sudden glare or low winter sun.
