Frequently Asked Questions
Are Engleberts wooden sunglasses polarized?
All Engleberts wooden sunglasses come with polarized lenses. Light tends to scatter in all directions, but when it's reflected from flat surfaces, it tends to become polarized. Meaning it travels in a more uniform direction. This creates an annoying and sometimes dangerous intensity of reflected light that causes glare and reduces visibility. Polarized lenses eliminate or reduce glare. Our lenses are specially designed to offer 100% UVA and UVB protection even in intense lighting conditions. Without polarized protection, depth perception is reduced, distorted view and color perception occur and in some cases, you could be temporarily blinded. Polarization is useful for many outdoor activities including driving, extreme sports, water sports, and fishing. The benefits of polarized sunglasses are endless and can save your vision
How should I take care of my Engleberts wood sunglasses?
A lot of people make the mistake of using facial tissue paper to wipe their glasses clean. Avoid this. Any wood based material would be abrasive in nature, and may cause scratches. Microfiber lens cloth is your best option when it comes to cleaning lenses and we include a free one, use it.
Take your glasses off using both hands. Even though it may drop your coolness quotient a tad, it will keep your glasses properly aligned. Taking them off with one hand usually stretches them out.
Never use fingernails or fingers. When cleaning your glasses, don't try to scratch off a mark with your nail or fingers because this will only make it worse.
Treat it like your furniture. When your wood eyeglasses start to look a little worn out, apply a hint of wax or oil to bring back the luster. Butcher block oil or transparent lip balm should do the trick.
Avoid cleaners. Cleaning liquids usually have strong chemicals in them, that might damage the wood. Avoid these, use only a microfiber cloth (Included with your purchase).
Don't throw them in the pool to check their water resistance. Wooden eyewear is typically water resistant. It can withstand sweat and nominal quantities of water. Excessive exposure to water might cause your wood eyeglasses to warp.
Don't keep your glasses on top of your head. This might distort the shape and increase the risk of falling and breaking.
Don't store them loosely in your purse/bag. People stuff all sorts of things in their bags, food, combs, cosmetics, credit cards and so on. If you throw your glasses in your purse without their case, they are likely to be damaged in all sorts of ways. Bring your free microfiber pouch along for the ride.
Avoid placing them in your pocket. This goes without saying, they might either fall out, or you might wind up sitting on them. And if you've got keys in your pockets, the odds are you will most definitely scratch your wooden frame eyeglasses.
Beware of hanging them from your shirt. Again, as fashionable as that looks, it's not safe for the glasses. They can very easily fall off, especially if you jump or bend.
Sound like a lot of work doesn't it? Nah, just be cognizant of your little treasures and they'll be fine. Before you know it, good sunglass hygiene will become second nature and you'll be a better person for it.

Engleberts Sunglasses have UV 400 protected lenses. What is UV 400 you ask? UV 400 indicates an eye protection item that has been optimized to prevent eye exposure to both UVA and UVB radiation.

This means that anywhere from 99 to 100 percent of the sun's harmful radiation is kept away from the eyes, which can give you a big advantage in eye protection.
