FOCUS ON VISION by Dr. Mark Skowron POLARIZING EFFECT One of the best ways to fine-tune sunglasses is to remove the glare of reflected light with the addition of "polarization." While regular sunglass lenses reduce the amount of bright light that gets into the eyes, they offer no protection against annoying glare reflected off water, snow, glass, chrome, and all other shiny surfaces. Polarized lenses not only reduce glare, but they also make images appear sharper and clearer, increasing visual clarity and comfort. The virtually invisible filter works by blocking out horizontal light waves. It should be noted that polarization, itself, may not block out harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, but most quality glasses that feature polarized lenses also come with UV protection. People who are light-sensitive, including post-cataract surgery patients and those who are continually exposed to bright light through windows, can also benefit from wearing polarized sunglasses. Aside from providing added comfort, polarized lenses are also a safety feature. For all your eyewear needs, please stop by SKOWRON EYE CARE. Experience, commitment to technology, and a genuine concern for patient welfare enable all of our doctors and our highly qualified staff to work as a team to consistently deliver quality, affordable eye care. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. Polarized lenses may make it difficult to see some LCD (liquid crystal display) screens clearly. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
