A lens with polarization helps reduce glare. We highly recommend upgrading to polarized lenses when purchasing a new pair of sunglasses, because these lenses are ideal for people who spend a lot of time outside or driving.
The lenses filter out certain types of light; specifically reflections off horizontal surfaces such as the hood of your car, lake surfaces, and roads. We offer polarized lenses from Adnuo®, recommended for occassional use, and from Nupolar® by Younger Optics, recommended for intensive use.
Polarized Prescription Sunglasses
Polarized lenses make seeing much easier in bright and glary conditions. We offer 2 brands of polarized lenses: Adnuo® Polarized+ and NuPolar® by Younger Optics.
To understand which lens may be better suited for you, let's discuss what makes a good polarized lens. Polarizing efficiency, the amount of glare that is blocked, is the most important characteristic to look for. A thin foil inside the lens is responsible for this polarizing effect. There is a large quality and price difference between various types of polarizing foils and lens production methods. Foil placement is tricky and critical, and needs to be within .4 to .8 mm from the front of the lens for maximum optical clarity.
Next, the ability to chemically adhere the polarizing film to the lens and keep it from separating is important for the longevity of the lens. We don't want the polarizing film to start flaking off, and as such it's important to pay attention to the quality of the adhering process.
Extended exposure to heat can change the color hue and intensity of the lenses, so color stability is crucial to proper long term usability. Putting your glasses in their case when they're not in use is the best way to ensure that the color of the lenses does not change.
We stand behind the quality of both brands of polarized lenses we offer and both are covered by our 1 year manufacturer's warranty, so you can buy polarized lenses from us with confidence.
