If you’re fed up of moving the sun visor around in your car whenever you turn a corner, it might be time to get your hands on some driving sunglasses.
Polarized shades are best for when you’re on the road, as they get rid of the glare from wet surfaces, dashboards and other cars too.
Light acts differently when it reflects off flat surfaces — instead of scattering in all directions it polarizes and travels in a uniform, horizontal fashion.
Polarized sunglasses take care of the glare this creates by blocking the horizontal light.
Here are our favourite driving glasses around right now, so you can see comfortably and clearly when you’re behind the wheel.
If they’re not already polarized, select the ‘polarized’ option when you’re checking out.
