Polarized Glasses

Is Spending More on Polarized Glasses Worth It?

You might be one of those individuals who often finds yourself squinting and straining your eyes while driving or playing outdoor activities due to the sun's glare. In this case, polarized glasses can relieve you from the irritating light that bounces off surfaces like a car's hood or snow-covered ground. At Hester Eye Associates PC in Kennesaw, we offer polarized glasses that offer the following benefits. 


Polarized Glasses Reduce Glare

An optometrist may recommend polarized glasses as they help reduce glare from sunlight reflecting off objects, allowing you to see more clearly and comfortably. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks intense reflected light, reducing the strain on your eyes. However, you need to have a professional eye exam before you purchase your polarized glasses, as the lenses come in different strengths and tints to best suit your prescription needs.

Protect Your Eyes from UV Rays

UV rays are damaging to the eyes, and they can even contribute to cataracts over time. Thankfully, polarized lenses are designed with a special coating that blocks out 99-100% of UV rays while you're outside. This helps to protect your eyes from future damage and offers peace of mind that you're taking care of your vision health. A professional optometrist can help you determine the lens type best suited to your vision needs.

High-Quality Lenses

While an essential pair of sunglasses may cost relatively little, they won't offer the same protection as polarized lenses. Our polarized glasses offer superior protection from UV rays and glare and are made with higher-quality materials designed to last longer. Investing more in high-quality polarized glasses will save you money in the long run and provide better eye protection

Enhanced Color Perception

Summer is the season when you want to make the most of it, and polarized lenses can help you enjoy your outdoor activities even more. Polarized glasses are designed with special tints that filter out certain shades of light, which can help enhance color perception on a bright day. This vibrant vision allows you to take in more detail while outside, allowing your eyes to take it all in.

Increased Contrast

Contrast is essential for good vision; polarized glasses can help increase it. The tint of the lenses improves contrast so that you can clearly see different shades of color in a darker setting or shadowed areas. This helps to reduce eye strain and prevents squinting due to bright light conditions.
