Polarized Glasses Provided by our Optometrist in Plano, TX

Polarized glasses utilize a specialized type of lenses that block glare. They're ideal for people who fish or participate in other outdoor activities. They're even beneficial for driving. Although you may purchase nonprescription polarized lenses, these don't help with much if you have a vision deficit. However, an optometrist at Lone Star Vision, serving Plano, Celina, and the surrounding Texas area, can pair you with a prescription for polarized eyewear that optimizes vision and reduces glare. 

What Are Polarized Glasses?

Typically, light scatters in every direction, except when it reflects on flat surfaces when it travels in one direction and causes glare. If you choose polarized lenses, they have a special filter that reduces the amount of reflected light that passes through them. The specialized lenses reduce glare when they filter the reflected light, which can improve comfort and visibility when performing outdoor activities. 

Amount of Protection Polarized Glasses Provide 

It doesn't matter what material you opt for when you choose your polarized lenses, nor does price affect the amount of protection you receive. You will notice polarized lenses are more expensive than a standard pair of glasses in many cases, but they definitely protect more than traditional glasses.

When you choose polarized sunglasses as opposed to standard ones, you receive 100-percent protection from the sun's UV rays. Not only does this reduce glare when you're outside, but this protects your eyes the best when you're outside. Keep in mind, the sun causes eye diseases and may be a contributing factor in the onset of macular degeneration.

Comparing Polarized Glasses With Other Glasses

The typical pair of sunglasses may only reduce 40 percent of UV rays. Depending on the material, you may receive less or more protection, but it still isn't the same as polarized lenses.  

You may opt to get polarized glasses with a prescription as opposed to polarized lenses in the stores. Keep in mind, polarized lenses aren't for everyone. You may benefit more for a regular pair of prescription sunglasses if you downhill ski. It can also harm your view of the gauges on your car because it hinders how you view light-emitting diode displays (LEDs). 

You may want to consider wearing polarized lenses indoors if you have a light sensitivity. For instance, you may have light sensitivity after you undergo cataract surgery, even when you're looking at it through a window.
