The sun’s reflection on water, snow or other flat surfaces can often be temporarily blinding as well as damaging to the eyes. Polarized lenses reduce sun glare in many of these instances, and are extremely useful for sports and driving in particular.
How does the magic work? The chemical filter on the lenses of polarized sunglasses is designed to absorb horizontal light waves, while still allowing vertical waves to pass through. Because light only travels in one direction through polarized lenses, glare is eliminated.
Media Eye Works offers prescription and non-prescription polarized sun lenses to all of our customers. During this past summer of 2016 manufacturers released NEW colored polarized lenses, so you can now get creative and stylish with purple, blue, rose, and gradient polarized lenses. You are no longer limited to just gray, brown, and G-15 green lenses. These innovations are where technology and fashion meet.
