Making your Memorial Day plans? They probably include some outdoor fun like BBQs, hiking, camping, water sports or beach time. You should be wearing sun protection during all these activities. Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pingueculae and pterygia and photokeratitis that can cause temporary vision loss. It can also cause premature aging around your eye area!

Polarized sunglasses have been popular for years with boaters and fishermen who need to reduce reflected glare from the water surrounding them.
But now that many others who spend time outdoors have discovered the benefits of polarized lenses, interest in these types of sunglasses has soared.
Besides boaters, outdoor enthusiasts who benefit the most from polarized sunglasses include skiers, bikers, golfers and joggers, all who may enjoy a clearer view along with elimination of glare.
These sunglasses can be used for driving and, in fact, can reduce glare from a long, flat surface such as the hood of the car or the road’s surface.
Light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water generally is horizontally polarized. This means that, instead of light being scattered in all directions in more usual ways, reflected light generally travels in a more horizontally oriented direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of light that we experience as glare.
Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare.
Some of our favorite brands of polarized lenses available in store now are :
1. Costa – A favorite among fishermen, these sunglasses are built to withstand water sports and more.
2. Rudy Project – A staple for cyclists and athletes, these sunglasses provide optimum comfort and performance.
