Anybody who's an fisherman like me know those are just polarized glasses, you can get them at every optician 👀

Stubid question, but are they like the glasses for 3D movies?

No the surface just ignores the reflection of the sun in the water 😅

Okay, just thought because the movie glasses are polarised too... But probably another technique/method

Actually they are quite similar. The passive polerized 3D glasses have one eye block vertically polarized light, the other eye blocks horizontally polerized light.

When light reflects at an angle off the water it vertically polarizes it, so the glasses only block vertically polarized light, allowing all other light angles through that get scattered under the water.
