People mistakenly advertise these as being polarized, but they're not. However, they still cut enough glare from shiny surfaces to be acceptable for even the most sun sensitive eyes (like mine). In fact, polarization can take away so much reflection you won't even be able to tell where ice and water are...that could be dangerous.
The bad thing is the plastic lenses aren't scratch resistant - if they don't come with a case or you can't find one large enough to fit them, they won't last long before you can't see out of them. Another is the bottom plastic shield doesn't extend far enough to block as much light from underneath as it could.
Smoke are the color to get - they keep the world pretty much the same color (minus glare). I tried the Amber and they color everything a bizzare shade of copper.
The tag says they give you 100% UV ray protection. I believe it. They prevent sun from reaching your eye from any angle. This is important for protecting eyes with Age-related Macular Degeneration.
They also eliminate glare from the sun and make it much easier to see things in bright sunshine. They are lightweight and comfortable. They are made of polycarbonate plastic so they strong but, like most any pair of sunglasses they will not stand up to being sat on. After trying them out for several months, I went back and bought some more. I now have a pair in each automobile and another for yard work, or walks, etc. I also bought the clear type to use as additional eye protection when working with certain tools. I love them.
In my opinion they are engineered to fail. I picked up a pair of Solar Shields at a Fred's store that were discounted down to $2.99, which is about the price they should sell for, given their cheap quality and lack of durability. They were made to end up in the landfill, along with mountains of other throw-away products (junk) produced in China for international corporations who take pride in how efficiently they can rip off millions of customers, over and over again.
I have saved all these broken glasses and am thinking of sending them back to Solar Shield. A futile gesture, I'm sure.
I have bought many iutems on Amazon but I have to question future purchases. I bought suspenders that fell apart before I could put them on.
If you dfo buy here just be careful and read all the reviews!

Nice and dark, and they fit over my glasses and have side shields, but they don't provide as much coverage as the other brand of sunglasses I got to wear while driving. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Rebeccah
