Polarized lenses not only protect your eyes from the sun, they eliminate glare for crisp, clear vision. Shop our polarized sunglasses.
Polarized lenses feature a special coating that blocks glare, resulting in clearer vision. As light rays bounce around, they often create uncomfortable glare. Polarized lens filters selectively eliminate glares by only allowing vertically polarized light to pass through the lens. This results in sharper vision, crisper colors, increased contrast, thus making your sunglasses more comfortable to wear.
Our polarized sunglasses protect your vision in many ways. While all AO lenses offer 100% UV protection, adding polarization to your lenses reduces eye strain, further protecting your eyes. Wearing polarized sunglasses is more comfortable in bright light conditions and for all day wear. Sunglasses with polarized lenses are particularly important for activities like driving, water and snow sports, and hiking. If you’re asking yourself – Do I need polarized sunglasses?, here’s a quick rundown of the benefits of AO Eyewear’s polarized lenses:

Sunglasses with polarized lenses may not be appropriate for all situations. For example, if you are a pilot, check with your employer if polarization is appropriate for you. However, in many cases we’d argue that polarized lenses are critical.
When you’re on the water, glare is all around you. Especially when fishing or participating in water sports, eliminating glare will increase your comfort dramatically and improve your visual acuity to enhance your performance.
Glare can be blinding when behind the wheel. Polarized lenses make it safer to drive in bright light conditions, especially when the sun is setting on the commute home.
You may not realize it, but snow is even more reflective than water. We recommend polarized sunglasses for all snow sports. Polarized will also improve your vision when hiking, great for moments of unexpected glare.
