polarised lenses cut down on glare from the sun reflecting off water/glass - something to do with the light waves travelling parallel to one another after they are reflected.

I always get them with mine, I seem to notice a difference.

They are good for when skiing too as they stop glare from the snow.

Good if you are a fisherman, they let you see into the water on sunny days, past any glare that may be there.

I thought most windscreens were polarised these days??

Polarised shades highlight the lamination in the windsreen.

I have polarised sunnies and the plus side effect it has is that I can see right through a car instead of getting glare from the windshields and rearwindow. I prefer polarised for driving.

Just ask the sunglass salesman for the pro's and con's.
I'm sure he or she can advise you what to go for.

For what its worth, I find that you can only see the lamination on the rear windscreen of a car..

I don't know if lorry's are different, but I have polarised sunglasses for car driving and they seem fine.
