What is the difference between polarized and non-polarized sunglasses? A famous question people encounters before purchasing sunglasses.
First important fact: UV protection – If a lens offers poor UV protection, sun rays may damage the eyes permanently causing macular degeneration which leads to vision loss and cataracts. (Yes, we’re serious.) The non-polarized lenses have a dark shade and reduce the intensity of light but they cannot counter the effects of horizontal polarization. Whereas, polarized lenses offer absolute protection against UVA and UVB rays. Polarized lenses also offer almost complete protection against the sun’s horizontal glare, making the reflection of the sun almost unnoticeable for a clearer vision.
Whether you are someone who’s constantly active under the sun, driving, jogging or simply lying under the sun, polarized sunglasses are definitely the better choice when purchasing new shades! Find your favorite polarized sunglasses starting as low as RM145.
