Polarised Fishing Sunglasses

Mastering Watercraft with some of the finest anglers

Look at all the best carp angler’s and they will all have one thing in common, great watercraft.  Possibly the most essential item of carp fishing tackle are polarised fishing sunglasses.

How do Polarised Sunglasses work?

Light reflected from surfaces such as water, snow or other smooth surfaces is polarised and spreads only as horizontal and vertical waves. This means that, instead of light being scattered in all directions in more usual ways, reflected light generally travels in a more horizontally oriented direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of light that we experience as glare.

How are Polarised Sunglasses made?

Fortis Eyewear polarised lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare. The filter is created by heating and stretching a film over the lens resulting in the molecules becoming arranged in parallel fibres.

What are polarised lenses made from?

Fortis Eyewear polarised lenses are made from a material called Triacetate Cellulose or TAC. Polarised TAC lenses have many advantages including high abrasion resistance, in fact one of the highest abrasion/scratch resistance of any optical plastic. Our TAC lenses provides very little distortion in fact less than any polycarbonate lenses. TAC is more lightweight and thinner than glass making it comfortable to wear all day.
