These are NOT polarized. they look awesome and feel great but don’t expect them a) actually block the sun or b) be polarized.I would recommend these to anyone who wants to look cool wearing sunglasses in a dark room while still being able to see as if you weren’t wearing sunglasses. They’re kind of like the yellow glasses programmers get to tint the screen yellow without making anything darker.Just got these glasses and have been using them this entire week to study and I already feel a difference! As a student, I am always looking at a computer or phone screen for a majority of the day. I recently started noticing after long study hours that my eyes would feel very tired/strained/ fatigued, and I would get minor headaches. So far, using these glasses has made studying at a computer screen more pleasant. I also started noticing that i am able to fall asleep more easily compared to before. This has only been used for about a week, but I am impressed with the result so far. Perfect for bright fall days, and no glare! Loved the price as wellwill probably buy others!
