Method Seven: What To Look For In High Quality Polarized Sunglasses
Santa Cruz, California -
Method Seven, a Santa Cruz, CA based manufacturer of high-end eyewear, recently published a blog post that explains what customers should look for in high quality sunglasses. The company prides itself on being one of the most innovative manufacturers of eyewear, and their post serves as a guide to the specific features customers should look for based on their needs. In any case, the company firmly recommends that customers choose high quality polarized sunglasses exclusively from trusted manufacturers.
Sunglasses are designed to protect the wearer against harmful or excessive light, and they come in a wide variety of styles and densities. It is important to choose the right sunglasses even when on a budget as the quality and type of sunglasses — and the type of work and light the wearer is likely to be exposed to — can make a massive difference in what kind of glasses they need.
“Anyone who spends a great deal of time outdoors should be aware of the extended protection needed for eyes to maintain health, clarity and focus,” says Method Seven’s blog post. “Some professions, such as pilots, are more regulated than others. Polarized sunglasses may not be the right fit for pilots, because they interfere with windscreens and device displays. People who engage in outdoor work, such as gardening, recreational activities like fishing, or sports such as tennis also need adequate eye protection, and may prefer polarized sunglasses. High quality sunglasses, whether they are polarized or non-polarized, offer immediate protection against glare and UV rays and ensure that vision is protected over the long term.”
Polarized lenses use applied chemicals to filter light as it enters the eyes. These molecules are aligned in such a way as to block a portion of the light entering the lens, thereby allowing only certain types of light to enter the lens. When purchasing eye protection, it is important to consider what kind of rays the glasses are made to filter and whether or not they are compatible with helmets or any other kinds of headgear the wearer might don at the same time.
One of the most important aspects to take into account when looking at buying glasses is visible light transmission (VLT). VLT refers to the amount of light that goes through the lenses and reaches the eyes. Higher VLT results from a lighter tint on the lenses, while a darker tint blocks more light and results in a lower VLT. Some professions make it a necessity for glasses with a low VLT to be worn in order to protect the wearer from the sun. Pilots, for example, often find themselves flying into the sun, which obliges them to have high quality dark glasses in order to safely operate planes. This is also true for other professions that may require staff or workers to face the sun.
The blog post also advises that customers take lens filters into consideration. It says, “Polarized sunglasses and notch filters block some parts of the optical spectrum and let other ranges through, sharpening contrast. The sharper vision fields help to define objects, even when the wearer is moving. Sharp contrast is especially important when operating machinery in the sunlight or reading gauges and dials. Filters are essentially invisible. They are built into the lenses themselves to limit or eliminate the amount of light which enters the eyes. Polarized lenses do more than reduce glare, when made well, they also make images appear clearer and sharper, as well as increase comfort and visual clarity.”
Method Seven produces a wide variety of both polarized and non-polarized sunglasses with high-quality coatings to protect the wearer from all kinds of light (while also improving quality and color balancing and eliminating glare).
