Which Polarized Sunglasses Are Best?

As you hunt for your next pair of sunglasses, we at Rx-Safety can assume that several different features will be important for you. Whether you are looking for work or play sunglasses, we’re sure that you will be interested in design. Luckily, we have a wide swath of sunglasses in different shapes, colors, and designs. We’re confident that you will find a pair that meets all of your aesthetic tastes.

Other shoppers may look for durability. They may have a demanding job where there is a real risk of their sunglasses falling off of their faces. They may also work in difficult conditions with flying dust or debris. Because of this, they may be looking for extra protection in their sunglasses, which they are sure to find in our ANSI-approved sunglasses.

But beyond design or durability, you may be searching for a high-quality pair of polarized sunglasses. These sunglasses, while stylish and durable, can reduce glare on reflective surfaces like water or pavement. Ultimately, they make colors and objects appear clearer, allowing you to see all of the fine details whether you are on the job or are enjoying a nice round of golf.

With that said, you may be asking yourself: which polarized sunglasses are best?

While the best polarized sunglasses may depend on who is being asked, we at Rx-Safety have several different pairs that we recommend to our clients. By choosing from any of the pairs of polarized sunglasses below, we are confident that you will be able to see extremely clearly as you go about your day.

The Best Polarized Sunglasses:


To start with this list of the best polarized sunglasses, we want to start with one of the juggernauts in modern eyewear today. That company is Nike. Nike isn’t only known for its world-class collections of shoes and athletic wear. To put it simply, Nike creates terrific eyewear for both men and women. The company’s attention to detail is second to none, and you will find eyewear that suits all of your tastes and preferences.

Nike’s polarized sunglasses can provide you with all of the functionality that you need to protect your eyes from glare. For instance, check out Nike’s Tailwind Sunglasses. These sunglasses are primarily for athletes who are enjoying their favorite sport outside, but they can be for non-athletes as well. These sunglasses contain Nike MAX Optics to provide the most clarity from all angles. Its Flying Lens reduces fogging while Speed Tint blocks the harshest of light, whether you are running or cycling on a track or simply walking down a road. Along with these visual features, the Tailwind has rubber channels in its temple arms that can increase both grip and airflow.

Besides the Tailwind, you will also find the Nike Vaporwing. This pair of rimless polarized sunglasses will protect your eyes from the harsh glare that you find when you are out in the world. Not only that, but the Vaporwing provides the clearest of vision in virtually all conditions. Like the Tailwind, the Vaporwing contains Flying Lenses, which reduce fogging by allowing air to circulate. These glasses are super light and aerodynamic, allowing you to focus more on what’s happening in front of you than the heaviness of your sunglasses. And lest we forget, the Vaporwing comes in many different frame and lens colors. Some lens colors include red, gold, and silver.


Next, we recommend that you check out polarized sunglasses from Oakley. Like Nike, Oakley is a world-recognized for its commitment to quality and style in its eyewear. By purchasing a pair of Oakley polarized sunglasses, you are rightfully expecting high-quality, durable, and stylish sunglasses that you can rely on in your day-to-day life.

As just one example, we invite you to check out the Oakley Fuel Cell Sunglasses. The Fuel Cell line is a perfect mix of design and durability. By purchasing the Fuel Cell line, you can take advantage of polarized and iridium lens options, which can provide you with sufficient protection from glare. Along with these polarized lens options, the Fuel Cell line contains Oakley’s lightweight O Matter frame material. The design of this line is also stunning. Whether you are at work or play, you will make a statement with Oakley’s Fuel Cell line.

From the Fuel Cell, Oakley also offers the Reverie line. The Reverie line contains technology that, according to Oakley, produces the best polarized lenses on the planet. It also offers significant UV protection to help shield you from the sun’s harmful rays. A three-point fit and Oakley’s Unobtainium earsocks and nosebombs ensure that these sunglasses will comfortably fit your face.

Wiley X

From Oakley, we invite you to look at our collection of Wiley X polarized sunglasses. While the company started with a focus on eyewear for military and law enforcement buyers, Wiley X now provides stellar eyewear for everyone. Their polarized sunglasses are extremely durable and will protect your eyes from that annoying glare that you encounter throughout your day.

We invite you to check out Wiley X’s Compass line. This line contains polarized lenses (either in gold or amber colors) to help protect you in sunny conditions or amplify contrast in certain situations. Along with polarized lenses, the Compass contains a T-Shell lens coating to prevent scratching in the most extreme environments. They even contain a Removable Facial Cavity to protect your eyes from dust, pollen, and other irritants.

In our Wiley X collection, we also recommend the Wiley X Saint. This wraparound frame contains Wiley X FILTER 8 polarized lenses, as well as shatterproof lenses that meet many different safety standards. With double injected temples and nose bridge, you will also be extremely comfortable wearing these polarized sunglasses. 

Smith Optics

Finally, we encourage you to check out our polarized sunglasses from Smith Optics. Like the other manufacturers in this post, Smith Optics designs and manufactures high-quality eyewear that you can use for work or play. The company has been in existence for over five decades and has remained committed to creating the best possible eyewear for its customers.

For example, check out the Smith Optics Drop Elite line of sunglasses. With these sunglasses, you have the option of including polarized lenses to help protect you from that annoying glare. But moving beyond the polarized lenses, this line meets many different safety standards (like ANSI Z87.1). It has impact-resistant frame material, signaling that these polarized sunglasses can take quite a beating. Maximum coverage of the most fragile parts of your face can give you the confidence that your eyes are well-protected. This line also comes in a wide array of lens colors.
