For people who wish to enjoy the convenience of wearing the same pair of glasses for both indoor and outdoor activities, Meyer Optica- Balmain Optometrist offers transition lenses that darken to reduce glare and blocks out 100%UV when outdoors in the sunlight.

Sunglasses reduce brightness by tinting the lens darker, protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays that help prevent the delicate skin around your eyes from wrinkling prematurely.

Polarized lenses however not only have the advantages of a tint but also eliminate glare, which in turn reduces eyestrain and squinting and improves vision.

Polarized lenses
Polarised lenses dramatically remove the glare and improve the visual quality of the vision with less eyestrain and providing better comfort. Polarised lenses also provide more detail and allow seeing deeper colours and better contrast. They eliminate all reflected glare from reflected surfaces such as the ground, glass, water and snow. Polarized lenses are ideal for fishing, driving, skiing and golf.

Polarized lenses will protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays, glare and intense light by allowing light rays to be filtered, therefore consequently improving the vision in strong bright light conditions.

Polarized lenses:
• Reduce reflected glare
• Provide 100% UV protection
• Improves vision in driving and water sport
• Improves comfort from squinting
