What are polarized sunglasses.
Light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water generally is horizontally polarized. This means that instead of light being scattered in all directions in more usual ways, reflected light generally travels in a more horizontally oriented direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of light that we experience as glare. When you wear polarized sunglasses, that glare is eliminated and clarity is greatly increased.
