What are the benefits of green lens?

By absorbing 85% of visible light and blocking out most of the blue light, green lenses provide remarkable color contrast. G-15 green lenses ensure better clarity of vision and a more “natural vision”.

Why polarized lenses?

Polarized lenses drastically reduce the brightness of shinny  objects, such as chrome, increasing clarity and reducing eye strain. It was in 1929 when a US Army Air Corps Colonel,  Edwin Lund, began working with Bauch n Lomb Company to develop polarized eyewear for aviators, flying at high altitudes, to reduce eye strain from the bright sun at those altitudes. This Colonel later formed the Polaroid Corporation.

A form of sunglasses date back to Roman times when the Empurer would put colored stones in his eyes to reduce the glare, while watching events in the colesium.
