Polarized sunglasses are no different from regular sunglasses in appearance. They are distinguished from other glasses in their special lenses that deflect the sun, allowing for a tremendous reduction in sun glare and increase in clear visibility.

Polarized sunglasses were first worn by air pilots to help them navigate through the air while dealing with the shining sun. The benefits of their glare relief quickly caught on and became a favorite for anyone who spent a lot of time out in the sun performing prolonged tasks, such as driving, flying and boating.
