Spring is here! It’s the time of the year to get outside and enjoy all the beautiful things the Pensacola area has to offer. For some of us that means one thing, it’s time to go FISHING. We have to remember that Florida is called the “Sunshine State” for a reason, and it’s imperative that you protect your eyes from the sun.
Those of us who enjoy fishing need to take extra precaution. Just a short time on the water can be very dangerous to our eyes. Not only do we have to worry about UV rays from the sun, but when you add the reflection of the sun off of the water, fishermen are at even more risk.
Polarized lenses payoff in more ways than one.
Wearing sunglasses can help, but wearing sunglasses with polarized lenses really helps. Polarized lenses don’t only protect your eyes; they give you a far greater ability to see into the water. For fishermen, this can be crucial. There are many kinds of polarized lenses out there, but if you want the best, look at the Costa Del Mar 580 lenses. According to Costa Del Mar, the 580 lens removes yellow light, which is the cause of poor on water vision. It raises the red, blues and greens giving you sharper contrast, purer vision, and in the end, more fish. Not to mention, the sunglasses look good.
Sight & Sun Eyeworks carries an entire line of Costa Del Mar frames for you to choose from. We can even order polarized lenses with your prescription to make your sunglasses customized to your eyes! Come in and see us at any of our four locations: Pensacola, Perdido, Gulf Breeze and Navarre!
Be safe, enjoy the water, and get out there and catch some fish!
