Mazama Alambique - Polarized Glasses
Mazama glasses include a Microfiber Pouch for storage and lens cleaning.
Why the Mazama Polarized Glasses are amazing:
Polarized lenses are created out of a special chemical film that helps reduce glare. Glare is caused when light from the sun is reflected off of water or a solid surface. By neutralizing glare, polarized lenses help you see objects more clearly, and also help reduce the harmful effects of UV light.
• 0.75mm lenses versus 1.1mm
Mazama's polarized lenses are made with a thicker sheets of film 1.1 mm. Although it is more expensive to produce, they offer more impact resistance than the more common 0.75 mm polarized lenses.
• The Science behind the Mazama Lenses:
The sun’s rays reflect light in every direction, so when a ray hits a flat surface, the reflected light shines back at your eye and is magnified, causing glare. It reduces your depth perception, distorts your view and color perception, and can even temporarily blind you.
Regular sunglasses are designed to only reduce the amount of light that is transmitted through the lens horizontally and vertically. But the chemical filter on the lenses of polarized sunglasses is designed to absorb horizontal light waves, while still allowing vertical waves to pass through. Because light only travels in one direction through polarized lenses, glare is eliminated.
