Polarized lenses are all about eliminating glare. Polarized lenses can reduce or completely eliminate glare. Glare can be caused by direct light from a single source such as sunlight, car headlights or reflected snow, water, cement, ice or sand.
What is glare?
Light travels in all directions. When light hits a surface, reflective rays are being sent vibrating through the air in any direction, usually horizontal. This reflective light is called glare. Glare distorts color, reduces visual acuity and depth perception. Color becomes washed out and objects appear blurry. Glare is dangerous because it can cause eye strain, eye fatigue and even temporary blindness while driving in a car, navigating a boat, skiing or any activity done in reflective light.
Polarized Lenses for Outdoor Activities
Pepper's Polarized sunglasses are ideal for anyone who spends time outdoors. Whether you're playing golf, tennis, skiing, jogging or riding a bike, polarized lenses reduce the glare that is reflected off the surface. Pepper's lenses improve depth perception and overall visual comfort.
How Polarized Lenses Work?
Polarized lenses are designed to eliminate or reduce the intensity of glare by passing light through a special filter imbedded with tiny crystals. The crystals absorb the reflected glare and allow only light waves traveling to one plane to pass through.
