Understanding the Difference in Cat Lenses

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).

Fun Fact? 

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…
