Polaroid, an innovation and tech company which revolutionized sunglass South Africa. The company was founded in Massachusetts 1938 by Harvard student Edwin Land, who then launched the world’s first pair of polarized sunglasses (hence the name Polaroid). After doing research at Harvard on polarization, he saw a big market for this and left his studies to open up his company. His advanced technologies were later used during WW2, to make an infrared night viewing device - very cool! Later, he became widely known as the 'father' of instant photography, as he launched Polaroid cameras, which automatically printed photographs after you took a picture. Today, the Polaroid brand sunglasses are more popular than ever, and to have polarized sunglasses is an absolute must these days! Thank you Edwin Land! 


So if polarization is what makes Polaroid sunglasses so special, what actually is it? Well, sunglasses South Africa become polarized when the lenses have an additional layer of protection coated on them. The molecules in the second layer block horizontal rays of sunlight, whereas non-polarized sunglasses South Africa will only protect against vertical rays. This means that a polarized lens will block rays reflected off surfaces like water and metal. This reduces the blinding effect known as glare. It is therefore essential for anyone partaking in water or snow sports or spending time on the road where light can easily bounce off metal car parts.
