Can I Wear Sunglasses while Driving in the Rain?

The innovative workaround of Polarized lenses

Wear Sunglasses while Driving in the Rain

Living in a tropical country where the sun is always up, there are times when we also experience rain. Rain is a common occurrence here that Filipinos have become accustomed to. Imagine you’re driving with the sun up, and you have your sunglasses on. Then suddenly, it’s raining cats and dogs outside, so why would you still wear sunglasses while driving?

We all know how much of a hassle it is; even a small droplet on our windshield can affect our vision, making it more difficult to navigate the road. Sunnies are known for providing protection against the sun and combating light. However, did you know that there is an unexpected solution for this issue, and that is wearing sunglasses?

To answer your question, yes. You may still wear your favorite sun staple amidst the daggers from the sky.


What? Did I read that correctly?

Yes. You read that right. More than its aesthetic purposes, you may definitely wear sunnies while driving in the rain. However, you must keep in mind that there is specific sunwear for this because normal lenses will not be able to block the glare. Choose a pair that consists of polarized lenses because these contain a special filter that blocks intense and horizontally oriented light reflections, providing sharper color and better contrast.

Benefits of Polarized lenses

Reduced Glare and Enhance Visibility

Enhancing contrast and clarity, Polarized lenses are designed to reduce glare caused by sunlight reflecting off wet surfaces, such as roads and puddles.This glare can be particularly distracting and hazardous while driving in the rain, and polarized sunglasses help minimize this effect, making it safer for you to drive around during rainy days. 

UV Protection

Polarized sunglasses also provide UV protection from blocking harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. Even on cloudy or rainy days, UV rays can still be present, and these lenses help shield your eyes from potential damage.

Comfortable Driving Experience

By reducing glare and improving visibility, polarized sunglasses contribute to a more comfortable and less fatiguing driving experience, especially in adverse weather conditions.
