As well as protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays, polarised sunglasses have specially designed lenses that reduce glare from reflective surfaces, like snow, water and metal.
Polarised lenses can block light and glare that reflects from horizontal surfaces, making them a good option for many sports and activities.
Polarised sunglasses are often the chosen frames for outdoor sports and activities where glare reflecting from surfaces is a common issue.
They’re great for golf and fishing, where sun shining from surfaces of water can cause a distraction. They’re also useful for sports in snowy conditions, like running and skiing.
Polarised sunglasses also make good driving sunglasses all year round. They reflect direct sunlight during Summer, as well as glare shining from puddles and snow during Winter.
