Sunglasses Q&A

What Does Oakley Polarized Mean?

What Are Polarized Sunglasses?

Polarized sunglasses have been around for several years now, and are widely used by fishermen and boaters. Oakley polarized sunglasses have specialized lenses with a special filter that helps in cutting glare, which is basically the light reflected from the surfaces. Other than this, they provide comfort and additional visibility, especially if a person is engaged in an outdoor activity.

Advantages Of Polarized Sunglasses

A polarized lens offers the following advantages:

  • Provides visual comfort
  • Improves visual clarity and contrast
  • Reduces eyestrain
  • Gives true perception of colors
  • Reduces reflection and cuts glare

Disadvantages of Polarized Lenses

People who wear polarized sunglasses complain that they have trouble looking at LCDs clearly, and make reading difficult. This is the reason why polarized sunglasses are not recommended for drivers, because they need to read the sign boards while driving.

Polarized Lenses and UV Protection

An additional advantage of polarized sunglasses is that it offers UV protection against the sun. However, one must not assume that if a lens is polarized, then it will offer protection against radiation too. Polarized sunglasses are made from impact-resistant material known as polycarbonate.
