Talking What is the difference between polarizer and sunglasses

Wearing sunglasses is not just in order to keep out sunshine, but has become a fashion. Ladies have the sunglasses as the modified their looks like necklaces, earrings, temperament is a must-have item; Men sunglasses as props highlights his masculine charm. But in recent years, more and more people will mention polarizer, when it comes to sunglasses sunglasses and polariscope have what relation, again! What's the difference between them, this is what this article want to explain to everybody's two questions.

First is both relation, sunglasses including the polarizer, polarizer is one of the sunglasses. Should say polarizer is as people more and more requirements and needs a special designed by sunglasses. Then said the difference, we generally mouth sunglasses, as long as no special points out, are only has keep out light, blocking ultraviolet (uv) these two basic functions of sunglasses.

Such sunglasses function is unitary, the technical content is lower, lower cost, of course, now many businesses as the ordinary sunglasses polarized sunglasses to sell, the man a lot of consumers. The polarized sunglasses with the biggest difference between the ordinary sunglasses, lies in the sunglasses's handling of the reflected light.

Environment we live in, there are three light point-blank light, reflected light and diffuse light, including diffuse light we do not perceive at ordinary times, but our eyes to see objects in one of the most important light; And direct light because it has a fixed light source (the sun), as long as pay attention, it would not cause any harm to our life. Because only the reflected light, smooth and flat plane can be a reflector, these common reflector in life often will suddenly to reflect the light, will bring a lot of inconvenience to our life.

Drivers, for example, in front of the mirror is a reflection of an uncertain light source, the side of the road surface or smooth flat object can be a reflection of passers-by carrying light source, the reflected light is likely to trouble or even danger to the driver's driving.

Polarized sunglasses is in view of the reflected glare, to filter it, so you can have the effect of preventing vertigo, and travel in the summer also can make the vision more clearly, alleviate visual fatigue.

This sunglasses, of course, the price will be much more expensive. If it's just go out for a walk, ordinary sunglasses can completely meet your needs. But whether driving or hiking, skiing and other outdoor activities, choose a pair of polarized sunglasses will make you more relaxed and comfortable.

So the difference between the polarizer and Sunglasses reflected in where? The first polarizer and the general sunglasses have UV light intensity and lower role, but generally do not have sunglasses polarized filters to remove or convert role. This is the difference between the polarizer and sunglasses place. Thus, the general sunglasses polarized

Polarized lenses are coated with a special chemical film that helps reduce glare. while Sunglasses are a form of protective eyewear designed primarily to prevent bright sunlight and high-energy visible light from damaging or discomforting the eyes.

When sun rays comes, rays reflect light in every direction, so when a ray hits a flat surface, the reflected light shines back at your eye and is magnified, causing glare.

So polarized sunglasses are coated with chemical film which reduce the glare.

Regular sunglasses are designed to only reduce the amount of light that is transmitted through the lens horizontally and vertically.

Thank you
