Polycarbonate better than Glass for Sunglasses

Time: 2018-07-14

Polycarbonate Instead Of Glass


SCRATCH RESISTANCE

Glass is the undeniable winner in this category. If you’re the type to have a pair of glasses for a long period of time, then glass lenses are a better choice. However, it must be noted that with either glass or polycarbonate, as long as you clean your lenses with a microfiber cloth and keep your eyewear in a case, you will help protect against day to day scratching and your lenses will last longer. 

 

IMPACT PROTECTION

Hands down, polycarbonate lenses are a better choice for impact protection. This is why you will only see polycarbonate lenses used for safety and/or sports eyewear. Upon hard impact, glass will shatter which could lead to further injury.

 

WEIGHT

Glass tends to be a heavier material than polycarbonate lenses. For those sensitive to pressure or who plan to wear eye protection for long hours, polycarbonate may be a better choice for its lightweight and pliable properties.
