Pros of Polarisation

  • Reduced Glare: By filtering the light that reflects off flat surfaces (like water, roads, other cars, or snow), these lenses reduce the strain on your eyes, making outdoor activities safer and more enjoyable.
  • Clearer Vision: With the glare gone, the world looks crisper and clearer. Colours appear more vibrant and details are more defined. This enhances your overall visual experience.
  • Reduced Eye Strain: Squinting in bright light leads to eye fatigue and headaches. Polarised lenses reduce the need to squint, keeping your eyes more comfortable and reducing the risk of discomfort.
  • Better Water Visibility: For activities like fishing or boating, polarised lenses are a game-changer. They allow you to see through the surface of the water more easily, spotting fish or underwater hazards that non-polarised lenses would miss.

  • Cons of Polarisation

    • Difficulties with LCD Screens: Polarised lenses can block out some of the light from your smartphone, GPS devices, and other LCD screens. This can be inconvenient or even problematic in situations where visibility of these screens is crucial.
    • Price: Polarised sunglasses tend to be more expensive than their non-polarised counterparts. Most agree that the benefits justify the cost, but it's something to consider if you're on a tight budget.
    • Potential Misinterpretation of Hazards: By eliminating glare, polarised lenses can sometimes make icy patches on the road or other slick surfaces less visible. This might lead to misjudging conditions in certain environments.
    • Lowered Contrast in Low-Light Situations: Driving at night with polarised glasses is not recommended, since polarisation reduces contrast and may make road conditions more difficult to read.

    Should you buy polarised sunglasses? Here is our expert recommendation.

    Buy polarised sunglasses if you spend a lot of time outdoors, especially near water or driving. The benefits of reduced glare and clearer vision can significantly enhance your experience.

    Don't buy polarised sunglasses if you rely heavily on viewing LCD screens for work or navigation outdoors.

    In the end, the best choice is one that aligns with your needs and ensures both comfort and functionality.
