Keep your eyes chic and safe while traveling with Polaroid sunglasses

When you're traveling, no matter where you go -- whether overcast Northern climes or tropical oases -- you need to protect your eyes. Polaroid has the technology to keep you safe and chic. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!

Polaroid creates sunglasses with polarized lenses and that makes all the difference. Here's what they say about it:

When light reflects off a shiny surface such as sand, water, snow or roads, it becomes concentrated horizontally and causes glare. Glare reduces visibility and makes it uncomfortable, painful and dangerous to carry on driving, cycling, skiing or even just sunbathing. While non-polarized lenses just make things look darker, Polaroid polarized sunglasses block virtually all glare. Light is made up of waves travelling in all directions.

Upon reflection on certain surfaces, light travels in two main directions, vertically and horizontally. Vertical light is usefulto the human eye: it helps us see. Horizontal light, however, simply creates glare. The horizontally-stretched polarizing layer inside every Polaroid lens does not allow horizontal light to pass through.

You can get serious health problems if you don't protect your eyes from the sun . . . but sunglasses are an integral part of one's style. Polaroid has created some classic, timeless looks that work for chic people of all ages. There are a lot of cute preppy styles! They're comfy and work with a variety of face shapes.
