Tinted goggles and sunglasses are designed to reduce brightness, but glare from the sun can still cause eye strain, squinting or even temporary blindness - To avoid this, Teamline recommend polarised lenses, which provide 100% protection from glare and block 100% of UVrays.
How do Polarised lenses work?
Visible light waves from the sun travel in all directions. When sunlight reflects off a horizontal surface, it often becomes concentrated horizontally. This is known as glare.
Vertical light is useful to the human eye, but glare masks useful light, making it difficult and uncomfortable to see. Polarised lenses block glare and allow only useful vertical light to enter the eye. Polarised lenses have been used for activities such as fishing, skiing and driving, now swim brands have developed this technology to help the swimmer – especially in Triathlon and open water swimming.
