Polarized Lenses

Polarized Lenses From Frames Emporium Eliminate Glare and Enhance Contrast.

Why Use Polarized Lenses for Sunglasses?

Polarized Lenses dramatically reduce the amount of glare created by the sun's reflection off of roads, water, and other reflective surfaces. Polarized Lenses improve your daytime vision and are ideal for outdoor activities. With polarized lenses from Frames Emporium, any glare from the sun is significantly reduced, which leads to a much improved vision experience.

What Kind of Polarization Lenses Does Frames Emporium Use?

Frames only uses Varilux Polarized lenses, the finest quality polarized lenses on the market. All Varilux sun lenses feature Xperio® polarized technology. Xperio polarized lenses not only block 100% of harmful UV rays, they also virtually eliminate glare, allowing you to see more clearly and more comfortably outdoors. Most Varilux lens designs are available with Xperio polarized technology. In addition, Varilux lenses are available in a wide range of colors, styles and materials, giving you more options than any other prescription polarized lens.

Our Polarized Lenses Offer Much More Than Glare Reduction

When photographing outdoor scenes, professional photographers use polarized lenses on their cameras to obtain brighter colors and deeper contrasts. When applied to sunglasses, polarized lenses remove the glareand improve your vision, making everything crisp and crystal clear. . In addition, polarized lenses play an important role while you drive, making it easier to see the road especially during times when the sun is direct, such as in the morning and late afternoon.

The effect that polarized lenses has on sunlight is dramatic. For example, consider you're driving in the early morning and you're not able to fully see the road and other vehicles because of the intense direct sunlight and glare off of the surface of the road. When you put on your polarized sunglasses, instantly it's as if the sun is repositioned away from your line of vision, and you're able to see all the other vehicles in full detail, color and contrast, with no squinting required!

What Makes Polarized Lenses Special?

The biggest difference between standard lenses and polarized lenses is the inclusion of vertical polarizers, which block transmission of horizontal light. As a result, polarized lenses reduce glare created by the sun and its reflection off horizontal planes. Side by side, the lenses may appear the same, but the difference is clear when you compare your vision between the two. With polarized lenses, you'll be able to clearly distinguish between lines and textures, a task that's nearly impossible viewing glaring surfaces through non-polarized lenses.

Polarizing vs. Tinting

Dark-tinted sunglasses will reduce brightness but they will not remove glare. The only way to ensure your sunglass vision is glare-free is by using polarized lenses. What's more, polarized lenses add a level of UV protection that you won't get from simple tinted lenses. In fact, dark sunglasses without ultraviolet protection may even cause more damage to your eyes than not wearing any sunglasses at all. That's because the dark lenses reduce light to the eye, causing your pupils to dilate, exposing your inner eyes to more ultraviolet rays. Polarized lenses solve the problem by eliminating glare and filtering out harmful ultraviolet light. The filter reduces the polarized glare and also has ultraviolet absorbing properties. The polarized lenses we offer at Frames Emporium represent the very best sunwear and outdoor eye protection available.
