There’s also a booth for us to hands on and experience for ourselves, the difference between a Polaroid polarized sunglasses and other sunglasses.  Having tried on, there is indeed a big difference; the Polaroid polarized sunglasses has managed to eliminate more of the glare, allowing better clarity.

Edwin Herbert Land, the founding father of Polaroid, began experimenting with light at an early age using kaleidoscopes. In 1929 Land invented the first synthetic light polarizer and he named it“Polaroid” from “Polarizing Celluloid”. This invention was used to make the first pair of Polaroid sunglasses sold in 1935.

In 1937 Edwin Land founded the Polaroid Corporation and the Polaroid brand was born. Mass production of Polaroid sunglasses began in earnest, creating a new market for fashionable polarized eyewear which Polaroid has dominated through the decades.

Since then Polaroid continues to research into technology and design, evolving its great expertise to seek a breakthrough in quality and technology in polarized sunglasses to achieve even better results in terms of eye protection, clarity of vision and wearable comfort:
UltraSightTM– The premium polarized lens featured in all Polaroid Sunglasses with technology for
eliminating glare. UV light absorbers are bonded to both sides of the filter, blocking all harmful UVA, UVB and UVC light rays.
ThermofusionTM– The unique lens technology where ThermofusionTM process optically fine-tunes the lens while curving it, resulting new UltraSightTM lens with improved polarizing efficiency and greater visual acuity, allowing the eye, and the wearer, to relax.
