Before we go into detail, explaining how beneficial these specific Safety Glasses actually are, we want to explain how Polarized Safety Glasses work!
A chemical coating is applied to the glasses lens and the molecules within this coating form a barrier pattern. This filters out horizontal light, an example of this type of light would be a light that has bounced off a puddle on the road!
The easiest way to explain and understand the difference between horizontal and vertical light, is to picture light in terms of waves. If sunlight hits a non-reflective surface, it will diffuse into vertical light, with waves of low intensity. However, rays that have hit a reflective surface maintain high intensity, traveling as horizontal waves of light.
Polarized Safety Glasses will only allow vertical light to pass through them, this means that glare is eliminated, as the horizontal light is thankfully reflected away. Indeed this may sound slightly confusing, but in a nutshell, these insanely useful Safety Glasses will only allow light that will not induce glare, so you can say goodbye to distortion and discomfort and hello to comfort and clarity galore!
