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

This is because there are situations in which you cannot wear your contacts, and you must have a back-up. The glasses do not need to be new or even the best prescription, but usable so you can safely drive and work. ...Read more
