Polarised lenses help to minimise low angle glare

If you have to drive any distance in gloomy autumnal and wintry conditions, particularly along motorways and dual carriageways, the poor visibility can become a strain and potentially a hazard, particularly if combined with spray from other vehicles.

Just this week here in the South West, people who commute to work by car have faced misty conditions, particularly first thing in the morning, often on the same day as dazzling glare from the sun at low angle.
Even today's mainly cloudy conditions presents a challenge because visibility is flat and contrast is reduced, making it more difficult to judge...

Light-enhancing effect in dull and misty conditions
The first thing you notice when you put on these clip on sunglasses is that everything appears brighter and the colours more vivid as a result of the blue blocking effect of the yellow filter.
