Most tinted lenses will provide some absorption to dampen brightness, but only a polarized lens can effectively eliminate blinding glare. Glare is concentrated light reflecting off a horizontal shiny surface, such as sand, water, snow or asphalt roads.
It reduces visibility and can make it uncomfortable, painful and even dangerous to carry on driving, cycling, skiing or fishing. With polarized sunglasses they will stop the glare and make the water appear more transparent enabling you to see fish and rocks below the surface and giving you more depth and color contrast to your surroundings.
Certain styles with venting holes on the frame creates air flow to prevent potential fogging on the lens.
ANTI-HAZE HYDROPHOBIC COATING LENS
Essentially any water (or sweat) which gets on the lens will form a droplet and will not spread out, causing visual distortion. The hydrophobic coating helps the run-off of water droplets from the lens surface. Tension between the water and the hydrophobic surface is lower meaning if any droplets get on a hydrophobic lens they are more likely to run off the lens than a normal sunglass lens. This is a definite benefit in the rain, or out on a boat or even for those who sweat onto the lenses. The hydrophobic coating resists stains and repels grease from fingerprints, so cleaning your lenses is quicker and easier.
Using thermoplastic material in a frame; these particular sunglasses offer extreme comfort because of their flexibility and quality. They can easily bend accordingly to your face texture and are resilient for ground impacts.
