Getting your new shades can be difficult, especially when there are so many new names that you keep hearing, “Do check out the latest Revos,” “Make sure you get polarized shades,” “Mirrored sunglasses for the beach!”. All the heaps of advice from friends can leave you more confused than ever.
For this post, let’s cater to the biggest sunglasses debate of the day: Revo VS Regular Polarized sunglasses - what should you go for?
Are Revo sunglasses better than the regular polarized ones? What makes the two of them different, and which one is going to suit you best. Let's take a look.
What Are Polarized Sunglasses?
Polarized lenses have a special filter coating on them that blocks out all the horizontally-oriented light. With vertical openings in the filter, they'll only allow the light oriented in a single direction (vertical) to pass through.
Most of the sunlight bouncing off smooth surfaces like the car windshield or a lake are horizontally-oriented. With all the unwanted glare blocked out, only limited, beneficial light enters your eye, greatly enhancing vision.
Our stylish, polarized sunglasses, like the Scorpion Tail, won’t just look stunning on your face, they’ll also keep you protected from the nasty reflections.
Benefits of polarized lenses
Polarized lenses have long since been the go-to option for sunglasses shoppers - at least up until the rise of the Revo shades!
So what makes them a popular choice? Here are the benefits of polarized lenses:
- Reduced glare
- Comfortable, un-compromised view
- Clearer vision
- Reduces strain on your eyes
- Enhanced view through reflective surfaces
Note: It may come as a surprise, but not every polarized lens is necessarily UV protected. Polarized sunglasses and UV protected sunglasses are two different things, so unless the specifications for the particular model of polarized sunglasses mention 100% UV protection, assume that they do not offer UV protection.
What Are Revo Sunglasses?
The revolutionary Revo technology borrowed by the NASA-based light management system has recently taken the sunglasses industry by storm. The secret to Revo's success in the market lies in its ability to manage the full light spectrum effectively.
Unlike only the reflective glare that a polarized lens is capable of combating, Revo sunglasses can also filter blue light and UV wavelengths.
Benefits of Revo sunglasses
The popularity of Revo sunglasses is rising by the day. What makes them such a hit? Let’s take a look at the benefits to know for sure:
- Revo coatings protect the eyes from harmful wavelengths, including blue light, that’s a part fo sunlight and is also emitted from digital screens.
- It blocks off glare from reflective surfaces.
- All Revo sunglasses are polarized.
- 100% protection from UVA, UVB and UVC, keeping your eyes healthy and strong.
- Allows unobstructed view of digital screens unlike polarized sunglasses.
Decision Time - Revo VS Polarized
Now that you have characteristics and benefits of both varieties right in front of you - it’s time for the ultimate decision! Revo or polarized?
Revo sunglasses are clearly the better option in most cases, especially since all Revo sunglasses are also polarized!
If you want to be able to read digital screens while you have your shades on, Revo sunglasses are definitely the better choice. The regular polarized sunglasses aren't suitable for viewing digital screens. You're going to have to take those off before checking your phone, withdrawing cash from an ATM machine, and operating car dashboard controls.
With original Revo sunglasses, you can perform all these operations seamlessly, even with your shades on. Let's not forget the added UV protection that Revo sunglasses bring for you.
If, however, your requirements aren't too high and there aren't many chances that you'll need to view a digital screen without taking your shades off, decent polarized sunglasses also make an excellent option. Moreover, you'll find a wide variety of these at attractive prices.
