Waves of light travel in many directions. When light waves reflect off of horizontal surfaces; such as roads, water or ice, they often become concentrated horizontally. This is known as visible glare, which can be uncomfortable for our eyes. Xperio Polarised technology allows only vertical light through the lens and therefore eliminate blinding glare for optimal visual comfort and enhanced colour perception.
