Light moves in waves. When it’s polarized by reflection off at a flat surface it consists of vertical light, which allows us to detect colors and contrasts. Light reflected from surfaces like a flat road or smooth water is generally horizontally polarized. This is perceived to be dazzling glare. In a polarized lens, the molecules are arranged in such a way that they only let vertical “good” light through. Horizontal light is selectively filtered out. Normal lens darken “good” and “bad” light evenly. Only polarized lens completely eliminate “bad” light, thus enabling absolutely true glare-free visibility.
The polarized lenses have been used for years by boaters and fisherman and drivers in order to protect and improve vision. Sunlight itself is not polarized; it would either be absorbed or reflected horizontally, diagonally or vertically. The problem causes for fishermen and drivers lies in the horizontal reflectivity. Sunlight pouring off a horizontal surface would strike the viewer’s eyes at the same angle. This simply means the glare from surface of the water or the road or the car lid would be strong. Polarized lens has a laminated surface containing vertical stripes. These stripes only permit vertically polarized light to enter the wearer’s eyes. Glare is removed, as the horizontally polarized light wave cannot go around the polarized filter.
