Sunglass Lens Types To Consider
Learn The Difference Between Lenses
• Polarization: Polarized lenses help neutralize the sun's glare that reflects off of surfaces like snow or water. They also filter some of the diffused light scattered within our atmosphere. You can see the difference in clarity in the image below. However, because they diffuse the light, it is also very difficult to see many of the computerized screens found in cars or phones...or if you're a pilot!

• Scratch Resistant Lenses: Scratch resistant plastic lenses and polycarbonate lenses are more durable than untreated lenses. Scratch-resistant lenses can also come with a extra coating for increased protection.
• High Contrast Lenses: Orange or yellow lenses offer contrast filtering, which aids in depth perception and provides a sharper image. However, because they distort colors, high contrast lenses may not be suitable for driving.
• Prescription Sunglasses: Prescription sunglasses enable you to enjoy outdoor activities and sports while maintaining good vision. Since these are actual sunglasses that do not rely on the UV rays, these are a better choice for you while driving.
