Sunblock for your eyes

Most people realise the importance of protecting their skin when out in the sun, but it is just as important that your eyes are protected too.

Research suggests that daily exposure to UVB in very bright sunlight over a period of many years may cause cataracts (gradual clouding of the lens of the eye). Polarized lenses eliminate glare and offer 100% protection from harmful UV rays which can cause irreparable damage to your eyes. We embed an invisible thin layer of film with vertical rows of iodine crystals into the surface of the lens, creating a Venetian blind effect which only allows useful rays to pass through to your eyes. Polarized lenses also eliminate the harsh reflected glare that can bounce off water, snow, glass and metal.

Light is polarized when it reflects from flat reflective surfaces, polarized lenses filter the horizontal ‘glare’ light whilst allowing the detailed vertical light to pass through.
