please explain what happens if someone with normal vision wears prescription sunglasses?

Not reasonable: There are many reasons to wear sunglasses but no reason to wear prescription sunglasses unless there is a need for a prescription. Someone with normal vision does not need corrective lenses and the sunglasses such a person wears should be without correction (we call this plano).

Sun glasses: Recommended... They will in no way harm your eyes or eyesight. If you have prescription glasses, get a prescription for sunglasses.
