Sunglasses…

Experts: Wearing sunglasses is a must for proper eye-health.

Sunglasses help us see on a bright sunny day and cloudy days too.

They also block harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

 

Survey: Expensive vs Cheap Sunglasses. Does price matter?

Good Morning America tested several ‘cheap VS pricey’ pairs of sunglasses – all claiming to block 100% of harmful UV rays. A special instrument (called a spectro-photo-meter) was used to measure the UV light going through the lenses.  Bottom line: ALL of the sunglasses tested blocked transmission of UVA and UVB rays, providing 100% UV protection.

So what do you get from pricey sunglasses? More durable frames and a more comfortable fit. But, you will likely LOOSE those sunglasses anyway…

so go cheap?!?    -ABC News / https://goo.gl/dTdtFf
