Time

Your eyes will adjust for bright sunlight with time but sunglasses will make you more comfortable and protect your eyes from UV rays.

Dr. Andrew Shatz answered:

Is it possible for sunglasses to cause depression, due to lack of sunlight to the eyes?

No

If you are referring to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), there may be a link with sunlight and mood. Sunglasses, however, do not occlude 100% of sunlight from the eyes so they should not affect it. There is also some thought that sunlight on the skin is enough to help reduce the symptoms of SAD. There is no association between General Depression and sunlight, however.

Can you suggest a means to get my eyes used to sunlight without sunglasses?

Not good idea

Head-eye
Sunglasses protect the eyes from the brightness of light and uv light. These are good protective measures and in bright light you can usually see better with sunglasses. Your eyes will not spontaneously get used to too much sunlight although a minor degree of tolerance may be experienced.

Are color sunglasses lenses bad for your eyes?

Not color, quality

Uvb
It is not so much the color or shade of the sunglasses but the quality of the lens in protecting you from UVA and UVB sunlight. Look for high quality or brand name sunglasses that states 100% UVA and UVB protection.

I have detached retina in r eye and short sight in L eye when the sun is behind someone Iam talkin too I can't see there face would sunglasses help?

Sunglasses…

Retinal_detachment
…are always a good idea when outdoors in sunlight to protect your eyes from UV rays. You want good ones that block both UVA & UVB & have lenses that don't distort your vision. Are you under the care of an ophthalmologist? If not, I'd highly advise seeing one for the detached retina problem.

How long should you wear sunglasses after your eye correction surgery?

Indefinitely

Head-eye
I always ask my vision correction patients to use sunglasses - it's like sunscreen, lots of protection without much downside.

Dr. David Kira answered:

Why do bright lights hurt my eyes even when I'm wearing polarized sunglasses?

Very sensitive

Eye_health
Polarization tends to cut glare but total brightness may still pose a problem in high intensity situations such as watersports or skiing. Having a darker lens, sometimes mirrored with polarization should provide the most comfort. If the eye sensitivity started acutely with a red eye you should be checked out for iritis.
