Benefits of Polarized Glasses

Have you been hearing about polarized glasses and are curious about the benefits they offer? Apart from helping you drive safely, polarized glasses also prevent eye conditions like cataracts from developing. At North Bay Eye Associates, we carry polarized glasses in a variety of shapes and styles. You can visit us in Healdsburg, Petaluma, Sonoma, or Santa Rosa to improve your vision.

Protect Your Eyes From Cataracts

When your eyes are exposed to sun glare for a long time, you can develop cataracts. Polarized glasses protect your eyes from this intense glare when you are spending long hours in the sun. You can work or chill under the sun as long as you want without worrying about cataracts thanks to polarized glasses.

Drive Safely During the Day

When sunlight hits your windshield, it disperses widely into a bright and disrupting glare. This interaction causes many accidents. Polarized glasses filter sunlight waves traveling in all angles, allowing only vertical waves of light to enter your eyes. This reduces the windshield glare, enabling you to view the road as if there were no windshield at all. This makes driving much safer.

Boating and Fishing

When fishing or boating, light reflected off the water’s surface can blur your vision. When you put on polarized glasses, you get richer colors, and the water is glass-like and transparent. You can easily see rocks, corals, and fish beneath the water’s surface. Fishing gets better since you can see what you are reeling. These rich colors also make kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and other outdoor activities more enjoyable.
