Can sunglasses be bad for my eyes? Is it better to have darker-colored lenses or higher uv protection (or both)? I heard that darker sunglasses cause the pupil to dilate more, which makes your eyes more vulnerable to uv rays. Is this true? Should I get li
Ultraviolet: Ultraviolet (uv) light is harmful to the eyes, especially large amounts over long periods of time. In the United States, all sunglasses are required to block a very large percentage of the uv rays. The darkness of the sunglasses does not affect the uv filtering ability, since uv light is invisible and the uv blockers are clear. It is true that darker the sunglasses will open the pupil more and thus let in more uv light, but since almost all of it is being filtered by the sunglasses, this is not something to worry about. The exception would be specific eye diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa, in which extra high uv protection is a good idea. ...Read more

Blurred vision: Dilation typically lasts between 4-6 hours. During this time, more light will enter the eye, making things seem brighter. Additionally, the focusing muscles of the eyes are temporarily paralyzed. This causes near vision (as well as distance vision in some individuals) to be blurred until the dilation wears off. You may want to bring someone to drive you if this is your first time being dilated. ...Read more
