There are many benefits to wearing polarized glasses, and when you get a prescription pair, it makes it simple to switch out your glasses anytime you go outdoors or get in the car. It's important to have your yearly eye exam with an optometrist and you can ask about polarized glasses at that time. If you are considering polarized glasses and live in or around Ocala, contact Ritz and Johnson to schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors.
The Glare Outdoors
One of the main reasons that many people choose to wear glasses with polarized lenses is that they greatly cut down on the amount of glare you see when it's sunny. Glare happens when the rays of the sun bounce off a smooth object and strike your eyes harshly. When there is a glare on objects such as cars, the water, etc., it can make it more difficult to see. It can even be temporarily blinding. Driving and boating are often made more difficult and dangerous by the glare that reaches your eyes.
Polarized glasses block the sun from passing through the lenses at certain angles. They work kind of like a window blind, keeping the sun's rays that pass through highly controlled. This stops the glare from reaching you. This is done by applying a special coating to the lenses that enable them to block light coming in from certain directions. These glasses can make it easier to do a wide range of activities outdoors such as driving and fishing. It can also make it less frustrating to participate in your typical outdoor activities.
Wearing polarized glasses also comes with several other benefits. Among these is the sharper vision that you will have. Polarized lenses cut through the haze that is often outside so that you can see through it better. They make your vision sharper and allow you to better make out what you're seeing.
The lenses give a better contrast to what you see, so you will see better than you could without them. These lenses also make colors look deeper, improving what you see around you. With these glasses, you can make out things that you wouldn't be able to see without them.
