According to lens expert Dr.Joy Thomas, problems associated with glare from the sun while driving are largely unrecognized, but likely affect the vast majority of adults. It also appears that as people age, they become more susceptible to glare and require a longer period of time to recover from exposure to glare.
“The danger comes primarily from two different conditions of light from the sun,” said Rips, president and chief executive officer of Younger Optics, an international leader in the development of lens technology. “One occurs when driving directly into the bright sunlight, temporary blinding the driver. The other condition comes from reflected light off of another vehicle, the roadway, or any reflective surface.”
It is crucial to take extra precautions to protect the eyes from its harmful rays. While Glare reduction films is been a popular and fashionable accessory for years, protective solar films are especially critical now as scientists point out the rapid deterioration of the Earth’s ozone layer and subsequent increased amount of harmful UV rays.
Is infrared a major reason for solar heat ? Infrared is light naturally produced by the sun. As part of the sun’s invisible spectrum, far infrared light is a form of thermal energy. This is the warm that you feel penetrate your skin when you are outside in the sun. Infrared carries the major part of the solar heat.So its very important to filter the Infrared radiation in order to reduce the solar heat,which consumes more energy for air-conditioning and cooling the vehicle/Building.
