Why Polarized lenses and not tinted?
Polarized lenses are developed with a polarized film that is cast into the lens to filter out polarized light. Very much like venetian blinds, polarized lenses blocks light at certain angles, while allowing light to transmit at other angles. While tinted lenses can help reduce the brightness perceived, tinted lenses do not affect polarized light. For superior protection and comfort, polarized lenses are the logical choice for sun and glare protection.
The definition of polarized light
Light is emitted from its source in waves. This is true of light emitted from the sun or an artificial source. When light encounters an object, it is often reflected. When this reflection occurs, the light wave flattens out, traveling in a single horizontal plane, often with high intensity. Objects that can cause light to reflect include sand, water, snow, and other shiny surfaces such as roads, cars, etc. This flattened light, also called polarized light, often enters the eye as glare.
