What are Kennesaw Polarized Lenses?

Kennesaw polarized lenses refer to sunglasses with a filter to limit the glare caused by reflections of light. It also protects your eyes from the sun by altering the rays of the sun before they reach your eyes.

Polarization occurs when the sunglasses have a polarized filter. The filter changes the way your eyes see the light and protects your vision and eyes. As a result of the filter on your sunglasses, only a portion of the light waves pass through and enter your eyes.

Advantages of the Sunglasses

The benefits of polarized sunglasses depend on your situation and goals. Generally, the lenses protect your eyes from blue light and UV light from the sun. Since the light damages your eyes and may contribute to macular degeneration and related eye conditions, the sunglasses limit your exposure to the light. Due to the limited exposure, your vision remains strong and your eyes have a lower risk of certain diseases.

Polarization also impacts your ability to see in different weather conditions. Since the polarized lenses prevent certain light from passing through, it reduces the amount of glare you see when driving or engaging in outdoor activities. It prevents blinding glare from reflections on glass or other objects. The result of limiting glare from reflections of sunlight on glass, water or even rain is a lower risk of getting into an accident.
