Polarised sunglasses have been popular for years with sailors 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 polarised lenses, interest in these types of sunglasses has soared.
Besides sailors and other outdoor enthusiasts who benefit the most from polarised sunglasses (skiers, bikers, golfers and joggers to name but a few), everyone can benefit from glare reduction. Polarised 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. Polarised sunglasses can also be worn indoors by light-sensitive people, including post-cataract surgery and those continually exposed to bright light through windows.
