Polarized sunglasses

Polarized Sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses have a lens coating that blocks out horizontal wavelengths of polarized light. The result? Reduced glare and increased contrast for bolder colors and crisper details. 

Polarization comes standard on all Warby Parker prescription sunglasses (and many non-prescription pairs).

Polarized Sunglasses FAQs

A regular sunglasses lens simply reduces brightness, but a polarized lens features a special coating that cuts down glare while enhancing color contrast.
