This entire fast paced and intense outdoors sports action means that if you blink you could miss it all. This is why you will see so many spectators at the XGames not just wearing sunglasses, but wearing polarized sunglasses.
What are polarized sunglasses and why are they among the best Lenses for Glasses? Polarized sunglasses are perfect for both playing sports and watching sports. The reason is that polarized sunglasses filter out glare, which is essential for fast moving action and for when you need to have quick reaction time. Snow or water glare can be extremely intense. For example, CNN anchor and reporter Anderson Cooper recently experienced partial temporarily blindness from spending too much time in the water without sunglasses.
Being a spectator at an outdoor event, such as the XGames, means having the right eyewear for the job. High quality Arnette, sunglasses with polarized lenses for glasses do more than filter out glare and harsh light as they also have the kind of UV protection your eyes need to prevent eye damage.
