In the world of photography, even with digital cameras, bright sun is actually a problem. It bleaches out colors, causes flares in photographs, and generally makes captured images sub-par. To combat this issue when photographing during midday or high noon conditions, photographers use a variety of lens filters that can be attached to the end of a camera lens. One of the most effective ways to restore blue skies and color to a photograph is by using a polarizer lens.

The same idea and concept that photographers use can be found in specialized eyeglasses for those who need clear vision outside in bright sun or suffer from light sensitivity. Polarized lenses filter out a significant amount of bright sunlight, providing clear vision and helping to prevent eye damage from intense sunlight. Originally limited to those who needed activity-based safety sunglasses, such as construction workers and outdoor sports enthusiasts like fishers, snow sport participants, boaters, and racers, polarizing eyeglasses are now available to anyone through an optometrist. They can even be customized with prescription values to meet specific eye needs.
Added Film Layer on the Eyeglass Lens
The polarizing effect is achieved by adding a specific extra layer to the eyeglasses on the external front side, facing away from the wearer towards the sun. This film acts as a protective barrier for the eyes, reducing harmful light waves that would otherwise overwhelm the eyes and cause squinting in the absence of sunglasses. The lens film also shields the user from UV light, intense light glare, and light exposure that can lead to a sunburn-like effect on the eyes. Polarizing lenses are so effective that they are used in Arctic conditions where snowblindness is a genuine concern.
