See Clearer

Mirrored lenses are a great choice because they actually allow the wearer to see brighter outside. Instead of absorbing sunlight, mirrored lenses reflect the light, giving you a brighter field of vision. Like any pair of sunglasses, your vision will be darker and a brown or grey tint (depending on the actual lenses), but your vision will be considerably brighter than sunglasses without a mirrored coating. Additionally, the mirrored coating will reduce glares more than sunglasses without it, especially on water and other reflective surfaces.

Having a pair of sunglasses with a mirrored coating the best way to conceal your identity. The mirrored lenses are just that — mirrors — and they work similarly to a one-way mirror. Anybody that looks at you wearing your sunglasses will only see their own reflection, not through the lenses to your eyes. Keep in mind that there are two main types of mirrored lenses - full and flash. Full mirror lenses contain 100% mirrored coating, while flash mirror lenses only contain 10%. Flash mirror lenses will still conceal your identity but will look more like a polarized, colorful lens.

Protects Your Eyes

As we mentioned before, mirrored lenses reflect sunlight (or any light), helping you not only see better and brighter but reduce the amount of light actually entering your eyes. Too much direct sunlight into your eyes can be damaging, and the point of wearing sunglasses is to protect your eyes from the sun and its harmful rays. In order for more protection from the sun, investing in a mirrored lens is a great option.
