When it rains, the car's glass is foggy and hazy. Especially when it comes to pouring rain, motorists are left with nothing but irritation. Wipers are scraping there, but we still can not see the road ahead. This is because raindrops falling on the windshield, quickly becoming a transparent medium, can make the light scattered around to produce the effect of glare so that the contrast of other things in the field of view drops significantly, resulting in blurred vision, can not see.
In general, we choose to wear sunglasses to improve the interference of glare. So to enhance vision in the rain, Is it okay to wear sunglasses?

And wearing ordinary sunglasses will make the eyes darker, so it is not suitable to wear on dim rainy days.

2. People who are not wearing contact lenses for nearsightedness (in addition to tailor-made prescription polarized glasses), directly wearing polarized lenses without prescription, in addition to the problem of not being able to see, the muscles near the eyes will subconsciously adjust automatically, making people feel their eyes swell.
So if you feel discomfort in your eyes, try not to wear them!
