GLARE: Glare is the unwanted reflection of light waves. Glare is the most fatiguing form of light and stresses eyes to the max outdoors. Glare, especially prevalent in late afternoon commutes, creates extremely hazardous driving conditions. Filtering the glare by Polarizing light, and its subsequent reflections, into only one plane reduces the stress on the eyes and works to eliminate the glare factor.
POLARIZATION: Light waves travel in straight lines and in all directions, even after reflecting off shiny surfaces. However, some light that is reflected from flat surfaces becomes horizontally concentrated. This light concentrates in a highly uniform manner vibrating in parallel planes which results as glare. This highly concentrated, polarized light causes visual information about the viewed objects to be lost. The resultant glare can make the color, shape and size of critical objects undeterminable.
Impact Resistance: Polaware™ exceeds the FDA Drop Ball Test and adheres to ANSI-Z80.3-1996, AS1067.1-1990 and EN18336-1997.
