Are polarized lenses good to wear all the time?
For the most part, yeah. But for some people it can create a little bit of weird dizziness
What does Lens Category 3 mean?
All (sun)glasses are classified into one of five categories, depending on their usage and lenses. Under AS/NZS (Australian and New Zealand Standards), sunglasses and fashion spectacles are classified as one of the following
- Lens category 0: Fashion spectacles
These are not sunglasses, as they have a very low ability to reduce sun glare. They provide limited or no UV protection
- Lens category 1: Fashion spectacles
Like category 0 lenses, these are not sunglasses; however, they do provide limited sun glare reduction and some UV protection. Fashion spectacles with category 1 lenses are not suitable for driving at night.
- Lens category 2: Sunglasses
These sunglasses provide a medium level of sun glare reduction and good UV protection.
- Lens category 3: Sunglasses
These sunglasses provide a high level of sun glare reduction and good level of UV protection.
- Lens category 4: Sunglasses
These are special-purpose sunglasses that provide a very high level of sun glare reduction and good UV protection. Never wear them while driving.
All of our sunglasses at SODA are created with Category 3 Lenses, meaning they provide a high level of sun glare reduction and good level of UV protection (helping you avoid becoming one of the 3million).
Go take a look at the range and pick out new some shades for yourself, get a feel for what its like to #seethroughsoda 🙂
Pilots don’t wear Polarized Sunglasses. Windscreens in (most) planes are polarized themselves, and when you combine a polarized windscreen and polarized glasses, it can black out the screen. Not a scenario you want your pilot having on your next holiday flight…
