Protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays and hooks with sunglasses!

Important info right off the bat! All our sunglasses are equipped with polarized lenses, as they are the absolute choice for fishing and boating!

"Our selection only includes sunglasses that are actually beneficial for fishermen and boaters, namely models equipped with polarized lenses. Polarized lenses remove water surface reflection, allowing you to see underwater rocks and fish following the lure more easily. Without sunglasses equipped with polarized lenses, fishermen miss out on many important things! Whether you buy a pair for twenty euros or a hundred, they have polarized lenses that help you see the underwater world more clearly," says Happy Angler's product manager Tuomas Hutri.

The benefits of sunglasses in winter and spring

As the brilliance of spring begins, it's good to protect your eyes! An ice fisher or winter outdoor enthusiast can quickly suffer from snow blindness or even migraines. 80% of UV radiation is reflected off the snow! By equipping yourself with sunglasses for ice fishing trips, you save your eyes and can enjoy the sunshine.

On the bright sunny days of spring, the reflections from the water surface also put a strain on the eyes in open water. Read next about the benefits of sunglasses in open water.

The benefits of sunglasses in open water

Glasses equipped with polarized lenses remove water surface reflection, and you see better underwater. In summer, sunglasses also protect your eyes from flying lures in the air, if you happen to be in the same boat with that fishing buddy who always has something happen to them. Additionally, even the cautious fisherman may experience a lure detaching from a fish's mouth during the fight and flying towards the fisherman. An experienced fisherman never heads out to the waters or shore without sunglasses!

As an accessory, glasses can be equipped with floating straps, which prevent the glasses from falling into the water, but in case of an accident, they float and save the glasses. Some of the sunglasses themselves are buoyant and will stay afloat if they fall into the water.

What differences do the colors of the lenses in sunglasses make?

Often, you'll see sunglasses with lenses of various colors. Does the color of the lenses really matter? Yes, it does. Different colored lenses highlight things and colors in different ways. A good general color for lenses is gray, which shows colors naturally, and thus, for example, you can see the correct colors of lures. Brown/copper lenses enhance contrasts, but the shades change slightly. Effective against reflections. Yellow lenses brighten the field of vision. A good choice for fishing, for example, in foggy or damp weather. Works best also in dusk and dawn.

The color of the reflective surface of mirrored lenses is different from the actual lens color. For example, the reflective surface of a lens can be green or orange, but the lens color itself is brown/copper.

Why is it important to protect the eyes from the sun's UV radiation?

If, after a sunny day, you notice pain, redness, and sensitivity to light in your eyes, the symptoms could be due to damage to the corneal surface caused by strong UV radiation. Symptoms can be alleviated with moisturizing gels available from pharmacies and by keeping your eyes closed. The adverse effects of UV radiation on the eyes include, among others, snow blindness, cataracts, and melanoma.

Excessive exposure to UV light also accelerates the degeneration of the retina. The best way to protect the eyes from UV light is to use sunglasses.
