Polarised Sunglasses

Polarised sunglasses significantly reduce the amount of glare that bounces off reflective surfaces.  This is most noticeable when afloat because there is reflective glare from the water, the surface of the vessel and any stainless steel rigging, to name only a few sources!  


The problem that yachtsmen and fishermen encounter is that the sun's bright rays reflect horizontally off the surface of the water and strike the viewers eyes at a similar angle.  This means that you might miss important windshifts, a submersed rock or a record breaking fish!  If you wear polarised sunglasses then the lenses will address this problem by only allowing vertical light to pass through the lens in a similar way that venetian blinds work.  However, please note that polarised lenses will not completely rectify the problem, just significantly reduce it. 


Polarisation can cause problems when viewing some navigation instruments where the horizontal refection can penetrate the lens when viewed from a certain angle.  This can cause temporary 'black out' of the lens which is overcome by simply changing the angle at which the instrumentation is viewed.  It is for this reason that Barz Optics include a range of readers that are polarised and non polarised but both offer excellent UV protection.
