For example, under strong light in summer, polarized sunglasses can prevent vertigo, have a clear and natural vision, and reduce visual fatigue. Polarized lenses have polarizing properties, so they can completely block the dazzling glare caused by various factors such as scattering, refraction, and reflection. At the same time, it can completely block ultraviolet rays harmful to human eyes.

How to distinguish polarized sunglasses?
1. When buying a polarizer at a regular eyewear shop, there will be a test piece with some pictures in it. You can’t see the picture without a polarizer. You can see it as soon as you put it on. In fact, this test piece is specially made and uses the principle of polarized light.
2. The polarizing lens has a characteristic, that is, the lens is extremely light and thin. When distinguishing, you can compare the weight and texture with other ordinary sunglasses.
3. When you buy, stack two polarized lenses vertically, and the lenses will appear opaque. The reason is that the special design of the polarizer lens only allows parallel light to pass through the lens, and most of the light is blocked when the two lenses are stacked vertically. If there is a phenomenon of opacity, it proves to be a polarizer.
4. Place the lens and the LCD screen, such as the mobile phone display, in parallel and overlapping. Turn the polarizer. Looking at the LCD screen through the polarizer, you will find that the LCD screen will brighten and darken as the polarizer rotates. If there is no change no matter how it turns, it is not a polarizer.
