Ray-Ban Polarized sunglass lenses are the result of more than 70 years of innovation and research, blocks more than 99% of the reflected lights. Polarized filters are arranged horizontally (at 180 degrees). The crystals in the filter stop horizontal light rays, but let the vertical ones pass through. Vertical light travels through the lens illuminating our vision of the world, whereas horizontal rays are intercepted, protecting us from blinding glare. Polarized lenses stop reflections off the surfaces as well as small particles in the air (water, humidity, dust, mist, pollution, etc.).
Benefits: Include Eliminating glares, increase visual clarity, reduce eyestrains.
*In order to identify a Polarized lense there will be a small P on the logo. Polar lenses can be found across the overall Ray-Ban collections.
