What is the difference between polarized and non-polarized lenses?

Sunglasses are available with polarized lenses or with tinted lenses.  Polarized lenses aid in reducing the amount of glare and scattered light rays entering the eyes.  This adds to the clarity and comfort of your vision.  Fishermen, boaters, and drivers alike can especially benefit from polarized sunglass wear.  The most common sunglass lens tints are gray and brown/amber.  Both colors, when polarized, equally reduce the glare caused by horizontally reflected light rays that hinder visual comfort and clarity.  It is important to note that polarized lenses can reduce the visibility of LED and LCD screens.
