Tropea Polarized: Our Polarized Lenses are made from optical grade polycarbonate and are both impact and scratch resistant. They block 100% of harmful UV rays and are horizontally decentered to eliminate distortion caused by the frame wrap. Polarized lenses are designed to block reflected glare from uniform surfaces such as water, roads, and snow. This is accomplished by building a polarizing filter into the lens that doesn’t allow the polarized light to enter your eyes. These lenses allow fisherman to see through the sheen at the water’s surface and reduce the harsh glare that occurs on roads after an afternoon thunderstorm. We offer polarized tints in dark gray and brown and green. The green tint is especially nice for fly fisherman that are continuously moving in and out of shadows because it is lightest, 100% efficient, polarized tint in the market place.
Comparison of Tropea Large vs Medium Lens Size
The black frame shown above is equipped with the Tropea medium size lens shape. This lens is superimposed on top of the rose colored Tropea large lens shape. As you can see, the large shape is both deeper and wider giving the wearer substantially more coverage. The additional depth brings the bottom edge of the lens closer to the wearer’s cheeks. This distance can be further fine-tuned by adjusting the width of the nosepiece.
