|Polarized Polycarbonate Lenses|
Polycarbonate lenses are substantially thinner, lighter and impact resistant than standard plastic lenses. EyeglassDirect.com utilizes polycarbonate lenses that are manufactured with resilient scratch-resistant and ultra-violet coatings at no additional charge to you.
Due to its high protective quality, polycarbonate is of substantial benefit when making childrenís and active adultís eyeglasses. It is also utilized in the eyeglasses of persons with a lazy or blind eye.
A polarized filter is produced by stretching a thin sheet of polyvinyl alcohol to align the molecular components into parallel rows. The material is then passed through a solution of iodine. The iodine molecules alight themselves along these parallel rows. In a polarized lens, the rows are oriented vertically in order to maximally reduce the horizontally reflected light.
Polarized polycarbonate lenses are high recommended for people who enjoy skiing, boating, fishing, and many other outdoor activities. They also make great driving sunglasses (especially at dusk).
