I admit that everyone probably doesn’t agree on this, but I am a big believer in polarized sunglasses. They provide an extra level of protection to your eyes in the same frame. It is like wearing a pair of pants with the underwear already built in. Wait. That is a bad example, but you know what I mean.
Special shades for driving
One instance when I prefer to wear polarized sunglasses is any time that I am driving. All of the windows and mirrors and the shiny hood of my car all provide excellent reflective surfaces. Sometimes the light comes at me at just right angle, and if I don’t have my proper sunglasses, I am blinded. And there is no worse time for me to lose my vision than when I am operating a car. I have great instincts, and I rely on them often, but I can’t trust only my instincts in that situation. When driving, I need total visibility, and that requires me to have my polarized sunglasses.
Polarized sunglasses by the pool
In Colorado, we have sizeable winters. That means we have to really take advantage of every warm weather opportunity. We get random fall and spring days that are 80 degrees or warmer, especially when you are in the sun. In those moments we all flock to water and try to make the most of that fleeting opportunity. For that reason, you will want to have a go-to pair of polarized sunglasses to help you look and feel your best.
You Can’t Fly Fish Without Polarized Sunglasses
If any of you are fly fishermen, you know the importance of being able to see into the water. Being able to see the fish makes them exponentially easier to catch, as you know where you should be casting. Unfortunately, the sun usually makes it exceedingly difficult to see under the surface. That is why it is extremely important to always have a pair of polarized sunglasses when fishing. Remove the glare, so you can spot those trout.
Being able to see well is something many of us take for granted. It is one of those things we get so used to working well that we don’t even consider what it would be like to live without. Don’t make the mistake of risking your eyes. Too much sunlight can degrade your vision. Be smart and invest in protective polarized sunglasses.
