Goodbye four-eyes and hello stylized! Making a fashion statement in prescription sunglasses no longer appears to be a challenge. Congratulations! You’re rocking those designer duds harder than Kate Upton at a Lenny Kravitz concert, but are you really protecting your eyes?
While sunglasses may be the more fun side of eye health, it’s important to keep in mind that they perform a function more important than “looking cool.” Lucky for you, you bought designer and your lenses already contain better protection against harmful ultra violet rays and blue light than their lower-cost competitors. However, 100% UVA and UVB protection is not always enough to prevent your eyes from permanent sun damage. In other words, you need to be stylized and polarized.
Polarized sunglasses are nothing new. Fisherman and boaters have been champions of the shades for years. The specialpolarized film placed on the front surface of polarized lenses reduces the glare created by sunlight refracting off water and sharpens the wearer’s vision. The channeling of light conducted by the polarized lenses is responsible for the wearers improved comfort: reducing squinting and eyestrain, improving depth perception, enhancing image contrasts and visual clarity, and increasing UV protection. Responsible for blocking horizontally polarized light rays, this polarized film causes the sunglass wearer to suffer less fatigue and have fewer headaches when exposed to the sun. Polarized lenses also improve driving safety and outdoor sports performances.
The best part about polarized lenses is that they are very thin and lightweight. Your personal style will not have to suffer as the lenses are available in a variety of color options and most designer sunglasses are polarized compatible. So no matter if you are a fisherman, boater, driver, jogger, mountain biker, or fashionista, Cohen’s Fashion Optical has the perfect polarized shade for you!
