There is a misconception that if the sun doesn't bother your eyes, then sunglasses are not required.

Eye diseases such as cataracts and Macular Degeneration that can reduce people's vision as they age, is secondary to the years of damage from the ultraviolet (UV) light emitted from the sun.

UV light is invisible to the naked eye, so even on a cloudy day the UV rays can cause damage.

Therefore it is important to wear sunglasses when the UV index is high even on overcast days.
