Are the REKS Wrap Around Smoke Polarized Trivex lenses actually Polarized?
Hi, I noticed that Trivex Polarized Color Boosting have a Black Mirror/Grey Polarized option. I also noticed not under the Trivex Polarized Color Boosting category there is a lens in the Trivex Color Boosting Category called "Smoke Polarized". Are the "Smoke Polarized" lenses actually polarized? I have received some Trivex Color Boosting "Smoke Polarized" glasses, and I have noticed unlike my old pair (Which is now lost on a dirt road somewhere) they do not say "Polarized" on the inside of the frame. I believe my previous pair were the mirror option as well as they were not see-through from the front, and overall a darker shade when in use.
My "Smoke Polarized" glasses seem to pass some polarization tests, such as with a car windshield, but not all. Leading to my confusion. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, our polarized smoke Trivex® lens is polarized. We have since made modifications to the labeling of our frames. We no longer have the word polarized on the inside of the temple. A great and easy test to check for polarization is taking the lenses in front of a computer screen and slowly rotating them about 45 to 90 degrees. The screen should almost black out when doing this. Only polarized lenses will have this effect.
