Xperio Polarised lenses are simply the best

For life in Sunny Hawkes Bay you need polarised lenses when in the sun.

Polarised lenses are the most comfortable sunglass lenses you will ever wear

Once you have had them you will never go back to un-polarised lenses!

Polarised lenses help wearers drive safer.
Glare from reflective surfaces, including car hoods, the road surface and the dashboard can seriously impair driving. Glare is particulary bad during the early morning and around sunset.

Oudoor sports are also enhanced by polarised lens wear, especially when near water (fishing & boating) or against a bright sky background (shooting & flying & skiing).

In addition to important eye health and safety issues polarised lenses actually improve the vision; images are sharper, the depth perception is enhanced and the sense of overwhelming glare is significantly reduced.
(This is especially true whenever looking at the clouds - they are so more detailed when viewed through a polarised lens).

Go on - give them a go!

When they are combined with the Crizal Sun back-surface Anti-Reflection coating to prevent "flash back" you will know you are truly comfortable for the first time.  Crizal_Shattkys
