Polaroid sunglasses are the creation of an inventor, Edwin Herbert Land,
who had the brilliant idea of patenting a polarizing material.
The Polaroid brand was born and polarized lenses saw the light of day.
The advantages of polarized lenses are obvious. Improved contrasts,
sharp and vibrant colors, reduced eye strain that make Polaroid so successful.
The brand has managed to combine an extraordinary material with the elegance of a timeless fashion accessory.
With a wide range of colors and shapes,
you can match Polaroid sunglasses to your outfits.
Polaroid has always been one step ahead of the competition, especially when it came to technology, price and looks.
The expert when it comes to polarized lenses
All Polaroid sunglasses have polarized lenses. When in contact with reflective surfaces, the light becomes blinding, causing an uncomfortable visual sensation. Polaroid is the first sunglass brand to use the polarizing filter to combat this blinding sensation. Whether you're standing in front of a body of water, on a mountain ridge, in the middle of a snowy landscape, or in any other high-light environment, you can be sure that your vision will never be compromised. These lenses with unmatched performance are combined with sophisticated frames that will catch everyone's eyes as you walk.
A collection for every taste
Polaroid offers its sunglasses in a variety of silhouettes to fit different styles and body shapes. Choose classic designs that go with any outfit. Go for modern frames to create a fresh, dynamic look. Create a perfect balance by adorning a round face with angular frames, or contrast the corners of your jaw with Polaroid sunglasses with rounded or oval edges. Try plastic models that combine sturdiness and modernity. Go for metal frames that are highly resistant to rust. Dare daring colors and patterns or be seduced by luxurious, classic notes.
Configure your Polaroid sunglasses
The perfect pair of sunglasses is one that enhances your look and provides the right protection
for your eyes. That's why Visionet's professional opticians invite you to determine the criteria that suit you. Add an anti-reflective coating to your lenses, which can be available in the tint of your choice. Choose the photochromic option if you want your lenses to darken or lighten depending on the ambient light. We offer personalized service for a configuration that meets your needs.
