Polarized lenses have an additional anti-reflective coating of film on them that help make your vision more comfortable by reducing reflected light such as glares you get from the sun. Someone way smarter than us could probably explain how, but Polarized lenses help eliminate reflections on the water, snow, pavement, car hoods, you name it.
Does that mean my eyes are shot if I don't get polarized shades?
No! Majority of our shades come with UV400 protection. UV 400 is the highest level of protection your sunglasses lenses can have. They are able to block 99-100% of harmful rays from the sun to keep your eyes safe. Our Wire Frame collection comes with UV300+ protection.
