Polarized Lenses Help Reflect Natural Light
The result is a reduction in annoying and sometimes dangerous glare.
Polarized Lenses reflect light from surfaces like a flat road or smooth water. This horizontally polarized light is blocked by the vertically oriented polarizers in the lenses.
There is some debate on the effects of polarized lenses on snow-covered surfaces. Some experts say they can reduce the intense glare that is caused by sunlight reflecting off snow. Others purport that the lenses are not satisfactory for sports such as downhill skiing because they may not provide the contrast the eye needs to distinguish ice patches or moguls.
