Polarized Sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses have been popular for years with boaters and fishermen who need to reduce reflected glare from the water surrounding them. However, they are equally as effective in reducing glare from the hood  of a car or the glare off of the road when driving a car or truck. They work by filtering the horizontal reflected glare that is so bothersome to the human eye. They are extremely comfortable and soothing to the eye.. As well as the filtering capability, they also block the harmful ultraviolet rays which can cause damage to the eyes.  One negative is that these lenses do reduce the visibility of any device which uses liquid crystal displays such as cell phones and some car radios.

Pinguecula

A pinguecula is a slightly raised yellowish area seen on the white part ( sclera ) of the eye. It is thought to be caused by excessive exposure to sunlight.  It is benign. Occasionally , a pinguecula may become inflamed . It can be treated with anti inflammatory drops.  The best prevention is to wear quality sun protection which filters out ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
