Sunglasses Facts

If you get a really good pair of sunglasses it will certainly be to your benefit. Ophthalmologists have explained that if you get a cheap pair that does not protect you from UVA and UVB, you might as well not wear sunglasses. Normally if you are looking toward a bright light, your eyes will squint to protect you, but if you are wearing sunglasses, your eyes will open further to allow in more light. One researcher used a meter to test random sunglasses that he bought from vendors in New York and found that some of them did not live up to the protection claims on the glasses. Caveat Emptor.
