Did You Have Childhood Sun Exposure?
Were you like me and had sun exposure as a child. Did you live in the sun in the summer around the pool or go to the beach a lot?
You could already have some damage to your eyes in some way or another. You can keep the damage for getting worse though simply by wearing UV rated sunglasses.
Is Darker Better?
You might be like some people and think it is better to wear darker sunglasses to give you full protection. This is not so though.
The tint has nothing whatsoever to do with the UV rating that the sunglasses have. The lenses are processed with chemicals to give them their ability to absorb the uv rays up to 100%.
You want glasses to be rated at least 99% to get enough sun protection. So wear what color of lenses you feel comfortable in.
