Fishing sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation and offer greater visibility. Whether you prefer saltwater or freshwater fishing, the bottom line is that you should always bring a pair of sunglasses on your angling adventures.
Did you know that polarized fishing sunglasses can improve your visibility through the water? Expert anglers often wear them for this sole purpose. The polarized lenses have a vertical transmission axis that blocks the light reflected off the water's surface. So instead of looking down at the water's surface only to see the sun's blinding rays reflecting back, you'll be able to see several inches or more below the surface.
Our fishing glasses offer UV400 rated protection against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. When you're out on the lake for six or more hours, the sun's UVA and UVB rays damage both your eyes and your eyelids. In fact, roughly 5 to 10% of all skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, involve the eyelids and the surface of the eyes respectively. By wearing a pair of UV400 rated fishing sunglasses, you'll block out the sun's cancer-causing ultraviolet light.
