Mirrored lenses are lenses with a reflective optical coating applied on their outside surface. The coating acts as a one-way mirror so you can see out, but people looking at you can’t see through.
Modern designs are multilayered to incorporate an anti-reflective coating for reduced glare, a metal film for durability and scratch resistance, and a layer for UV protection.
Mirrored sunglasses are very trendy and popular. Law enforcement uses mirrored sunglasses so much that the style is often referred to as “cop glasses.” They come in a wide array of 12 lens colors, but silver is the most popular and classic.
One of the benefits of mirrored sunglasses includes reduced light getting through to your eyes. In fact, they’re better at blocking light than regular sunglasses. This makes them suitable for outdoor pursuits like hiking, snow activities, and water sports. Try adding polarized lens options for even better glare reduction, too.
