We all know the key benefits of wearing sunglasses - they protect our eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays. However, polarised glasses offer you a lot more than just mere UV protection. Not only is it equipped with UV protection, but it also enhances the quality of your vision.
Such benefits are of course inevitably accompanied by a heftier price tag.
Here are some of the benefits of polarised sunglasses that will definitely prove your investment worthy.
1. Reduces glare
Glare is caused when light from the sun is reflected off of water or a solid surface, and it often causes objects to appear hazy when they are looked in the direction of the sun. Surfaces or objects that reflect light can become blinding and uncomfortable to look at.
While regular sunglasses only help to reduce the amount of light but not glare, polarised lenses are much more beneficial as they are coated with a special chemical film that will help to reduce glare. The chemical film on the polarised sunglasses absorbs horizontal light waves, while still allowing vertical light waves to pass through the lens, and hence removingglare. In the long run, wearing polarised lenses will help to improve the quality of one's eyesight due to the reduced glare.
2. They are perfect for water sports
Similarly, polarised sunglasses can reduce the glare caused by the reflections of light on water surfaces.
With the presence of a special chemical film in polarised lenses, the wearer is able to see clearer into the water - explaining why fishers and boaters prefer wearing polarised sunglasses as compared to regular ones.
3. Enhanced vision and improved safety for drivers
Therefore, with polarised sunglasses, there is no need for squinting during sunny days, which is a daily occurrence in Singapore. Squinting is not only uncomfortable, but it also causes eye redness, fatigue and irritation. With polarised sunglasses, there will be a significant improvement in the clarity and colour of the wearer's sight. Especially for drivers, these lenses allow them to have a sharper focus on the road as glare and reflection will no longer be a distraction.
With its numerous benefits, polarised lenses definitely triumphs regular sunglasses, especially if you are looking for a long term improvement for your eyesight.
