What are polarized sunglasses and why choose them.

Boat trip or mountain hike? Never without TBD Eyewear polarized sunglasses. Let's find out their characteristics together.

What are polarized sunglasses and why choose them.

You have certainly heard of the polarized sunglasses, but do you know why are they different? Let's start with the premise that in the three-dimensional space, the natural light moves vertically, horizontally and within these two dimensions. During the horizontal movement, the light, which is called polarized, creates a visual disturbance, a reflection. This reverberation covers the entire field of the view and causes a color distortion and reduced the visibility.

How do polarized lenses work?

The lenses of the polarized sunglasses are able to absorb the horizontal sunshine rays responsible for glare, allowing only the useful vertical rays to pass through.

How polarized lenses work

The advantages of the sunglasses with the polarized lenses

There are several advantages that the polarized filter of the sunglasses can guarantee:

  • reduction of reverberation
  • clear and clean vision
  • increase in contrast and colors
  • less eye strains

The polarized sunglasses are optimal especially for those who play sports, not necessarily at a competitive level, but also simply as a hobby. The polarized sports glasses are useful in natural environments such as the mountains, the sea, where the water or the snow can be a vehicle for the strong reflections and the visual disturbances. When practicing sports such as the skiing, the fishing, the mountaineering, it is necessary to use the polarized sports sunglasses.

The polarized lenses can be of different colors: grey, brown, pink and green. Depending on the use and the preferred chromatic effect, each colour has different characteristics. The grey lenses are perfect in situations of the direct and intense light, the brown lenses are the most versatile, ideal from the morning until the sunset. Pink lenses have a warm filter and green ones are suitable especially in conditions of variable brightness.
