I bet you never knew there were glasses and lenses specifically made for Shark Sighting! I just got back from eating lunch at TGI Friday’s where, as I sat waiting for my salad, I was watching a silenced version of the daily news.

I bet you never knew there were glasses and lenses specifically made for Shark Sighting!

I just got back from eating lunch at TGI Friday’s where, as I sat waiting for my salad, I was watching a silenced version of the daily news. One story in particular caught my attention though.  Apparently, a fisherman who was fishing off the coast of Alabama sighted a 12 foot great white shark! Yikes.

It was funny to me because I was thinking “there is no way he could’ve seen Jaws without polarized lenses.” I say that because water produces a very intense reflection that makes it very difficult to see below the surface if there is virtually any sunlight.

A polarized lens however, works wonders for this type of activity because it was designed to remove glare and reflections resulting in bright, vivid colors and crisp, clear images. The polarized filter works like Venetian blinds, redirecting the scattered light so it doesn’t blind you.

I’m telling you, eye care is such a cool industry. The options in the optical field are sort of like the iphone advertisement where they say “Yep. There’s an AP for that.” … Our version? “Yep, there’s a lens for that.” There is a lens for every single activity, every single life style, you name it, we’ve got it.

And the best part? All these options are available to you in all of Dr. Tavel’s Indianapolis optical and surrounding optical locations. With the most technologically advanced eyeglasses Indianapolis has to offer you can honestly find anything you can dream up.
