• Will polarized lenses affect my depth perception?


    Question:

    I play a lot of tennis and am considering transition polarized “Drivewear” lenses for tennis. I’m told they create more visual clarity on both gray and sunny days. Do you think that is a good idea or would polarized lenses affect my depth perception?


    Answer:

    Polarized lenses will have minimal effect on your depth perception.  Not sure that the lenses you suggest would have much effect on sunny days, but they might to a small degree help on gray days.  I do like the idea of a protective lens over your eye to protect you from errant tennis balls which could damage the eye.
