Dryness: Computer use is now extremely common for sustained periods. It is not harmful but it is drying. Eye dryness causes many symptoms including fatigue, irritation, redness, and some amount of blur. I recommend that frequent computer users have a bottle of tear replacement drops next to the computer to be used whenever there is any type of symptom. Sunglasses would not help. ...Read more

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

Is wearing sunglasses healthy or unhealthy for your eyes?

Usually healthy: Make sure that the sunglasses block uv rays. They will usually say "blocks uva/uvb" on the side. There were some problems with sunglasses that blocked visible light well, allowing the pupil to dilate, but they did not block uv (ultraviolet rays) well, so they let even more uv rays in than wearing no sunglasses. Most modern or quality sunglasses block uv rays well. ...Read more
