Can't use Polarized Lenses? "Extreme Glare" Sunglasses are the only viable alternative
Booth 3011 -- Polarized lenses have been used for over 70 years, and have done a great job. They were originally designed for reflective glare as seen on shiny surfaces such as water, snow, windows, a piece of chrome etc., etc.
Now digital instrumentation challenges the efficacy of what a Polarized lens can do, or not do. Now, almost all electronic equipment is developed with digital display readout screens.
Unfortunately, when viewing digital display screens through Polarized
lenses, you will see "blotches," that interfere with the ability to read, or see the information presented on the display screens. Polarized lenses make it difficult to clearly see the L.C.D. or L.E.D. screens on navigational equipment. The problem affects chart plotters, fish finders, G.P.S. units, new gas pumps, smart phones, and almost all current digital instrumentation.

Polarized lenses produce many, very noticeable blotches (dark patchy areas) appearing on boat windshields which interfere with the ability to navigate correctly especially when looking for fish, submerged rocks, dead heads, buoys, markers, and debris.
With the modernization of electronics, Polarized lenses have become obsolete, and antiquated. Polarized lenses are now less practical, and less usable.
"Extreme Glare" Technology is not Polarized, and therefore do not create the blotches on digital display screens. You can clearly read your digital instruments with ease (provided the lenses are not shaded too dark).

"Extreme Glare" Technology does not create blotches when looking through windshields. Thus, "Extreme Glare" Technology is a better alternative for navigators, power boaters, sailors, fishermen, and everyone under the sun.
It should be noted that "Extreme Glare" sunglasses will block more direct glare "from the sun" than Polarized lenses can do.
In conclusion, with the advent of digital electronics, "Extreme Glare" Technology has become the best, most reliable choice. “Extreme Glare” proprietary technology surpasses any other "anti-glare" technology known in the world today.
You will be pleasantly surprised how well they perform. Your eyes,
and your face will be much more relaxed from a long day on the water. Your eyes will be more protected from the damaging U.V. Rays from the sun.

Try them on - - the difference is truly clear!

Important background: Aviators /Pilots have very unique needs for special protection when flying. The sun, and atmosphere is incredibly bright above the clouds, and one can easily be blinded by solar glare. Ultra Violet rays are especially dangerous, and damaging at high altitudes. Extra protection is required when considering the harmful rays from the sun at altitude.
Looking down in the cock pit to read maps, charts, instruments, and other items can be difficult with lenses that are too dark. Trying to read the digital instruments is almost impossible with polarized lenses, and can cause anxiety, and frustration. In addition, polarized lenses produce blotchy images on aircraft windshields which are annoying, and difficult to see through when flying. Polarized lenses will eliminate the “Glint” seen on approaching aircraft, and that can be very dangerous for everyone.
These are some of the reasons that the F.A.A. ruled that aviators/ pilots are not to wear “Polarized” lenses in the cockpit. Therefore, polarized lenses have become antiquated in the new “digital age” of electronics.
The only possible alternative to polarized lens technology, or other lenses in the cockpit, would be “Extreme Glare” sunglass lens technology. The ideal lens for pilots would be the rose lens in the “Extreme Glare” technology that is graduated (darker on top, but much lighter on the bottom of the lenses). The pilot would enjoy the maximum U.V. protection, while the darker rose on the top protects against the blinding glare. The lower one third of the lens is lighter to enable easy viewing of maps, charts, and all the avionics. Since the lenses are not polarized, there is no problem in reading the digital screens, and the windshields are clear without the annoying blotches associated with polarization. Pilots can now see the “Glint” from approaching aircraft, and will be able to make a good judgment call as a result.
“Extreme Glare” sunglasses will do so much more to enhance the PILOT visual experience while flying, and yet provide the maximum protection in all conditions.

The rose lens will enhance colors without altering, or changing of the actual color seen. Rose lenses will make reds redder, blues bluer, whites whiter, greens greener, and yellows more yellow Thus, there is better contrast, better definition, and better depth perception. Gray lens technology will not do these feats, but on the other hand, “Extreme Glare” gray lens technology will block more glare than any other technology known in the world today.
“Extreme Glare” lens technology is un-paralleled since it surpasses Polarized lenses in every way in today’s digital world of electronics. “Extreme Glare” sunglass lens technology offers a” No Risk” 60 day “Satisfaction” guarantee, or your money will promptly be refunded.
