5 advantages of choosing polarized sunglasses this summer

You've no doubt already noticed the problems that bright light can cause when you're outdoors and it bounces off reflective surfaces such as roads, water and windows. These reflections stop you from seeing properly. There is, however, a way of limiting glare: polarized lenses! Learn about the five advantages of wearing them this summer.

5 advantages of choosing polarized sunglasses this summer




Polarized lenses have been specially treated to eliminate the effect of glare on reflective surfaces, giving the wearer improved visual comfort.


On our lenses, this treatment can take the form of:

  • either a simple filter on the surface of the lens, as in the case of polycarbonate lenses (Polarized 3)


  • or self-colored treatment as in our NXT technical lenses (Octopus, and Cameleon). Self-colored treatment producessuperior optical quality.




Are you a seasoned sportsperson or someone who prefers family strolls along the beach? No problem – you can choose your lensesto match your activities, and polarized lenses come in a variety of colors!


 yellow/brown A yellow/brown lens accentuates and brings out relief: ideal for mountain sports (mountain biking, trail running, climbing, mountaineering, biathlon, etc.)
 gray A gray lens replicates colors faithfully: ideal for reading the water, a feature particularly appreciated by sailors




Polarized lenses:


  • Provide you with the most effective protection and best comfort in the sun by operating on the principle of Venetian blinds: light only enters the eye along 1 axis.


  • Protect you from glare by cutting out rays of light reflecting off a flat / horizontal surface (water, snow, windscreen, etc.).


  • Intensify colors and improve contrast and relief.
