I have always had prescription sunglasses, but they have only been simply tinted until I recently got actual polarized sunglasses.
Right away, I noticed a lot of quirks with them, but I have never heard anyone talk about these quirks, despite millions of people wearing polarized sunglasses. I did a quick search online and some of my observations are true, and some I couldn't find anything about:
LCD screens disappear--I guess this is normal because of the vertical something-rather in the lenses. But it's really annoying. I either have to turn my head, or take my sun glasses off when using a digital camera or laptop outside.
Car windows have spots if they are tinted--and if I turn my head, I can't see through car windows at all! I couldn't find anything about this online.
I can see through yellow clothes! No joke. Yesterday, the attractive neighbor lady came outside so our babies could play together and she was wearing a yellow shirt with nothing under it and I could see through it perfectly as though she had nothing on. I took my sunglasses off and it looked like a normal shirt. I put my sunglasses back on and I could see through it again. My wife, who has just tinted sunglasses, didn't notice a thing, so I thought I was just crazy. But, I looked it up, and polarized sunglasses have something green in them to filter yellow light, thus I could see through her yellow shirt as though she wasn't wearing one.
How come I have never heard about this stuff? Clearly other FOOsters have polarized sunglasses--what other quirks are there? I also read to be extra careful in the snow with polarized lenses since it could create a hazard. What?
