GLIDER POLARIZED LENS

Glider's choice of triacetate-cellulose (TAC) polarized lenses are produced by reputable manufacturers that specialise in polarized filters. Each lens comprises six layers of protection that provide technically-advanced protection to eliminate harmful rays caused by harsh light.

Our sunglasses do more than just block blinding glare, reflections and harmful UVA and UVB rays. It helps you see better by improving contrast, visual comfort and clarity. Best of all - since all harmful rays are blocked, eye strain is reduced and your eyes won't have to work as hard!

In short, with Glider eyewear you can look forward to enhanced UV protection, contrast and visual clarity; as well as reduced eye stress, light sensitivity, and glare - everything you need to see life from a brand-new and improved point of view.

POLARIZED VS NON-POLARIZED

Exposure to ultraviolet rays can lead to premature ageing of the crystalline lens and cornea of the eye, as well as the development of cataracts and conjunctivitis. It can also damage the essential part of the retina and cause blurred vision.

Glider polarized sunglasses eliminate harmful reflections that can temporarily blind and irritate the eye, causing redness and discomfort. Our lenses have been treated to filter light through an extremely thin film of dichroic crystals, which eliminates and reduces the glare that reflects from horizontal surfaces e.g. water, snow, tar roads, sands etc.
