2) Direct : bright light emanating from a direct source i.e.: the sun above

3) Bounce-Back : light from beside or behind you that reflected off the backside of your sunglasses and into your eyes.

 

Blue Blocker:

Age related macular degeneration, night blindness and retinitis pigmentosa appear to be linked to violet and blue light exposure. Many of these eye problems, which are gradual and develop over a lifetime, can be lessened or prevented by blocking out violet and blue light exposure with Blue Blocker lenses.
