Even short-term exposure to the sun’s UV rays―such as from a day at the beach without sunglasses―can cause sunburn of the eye, a condition called photokeratitis. Symptoms include red eyes, a sensation that there’s a piece of lint or grit in the eyes, extreme sensitivity to light, and excessive tearing. Don’t risk it: wear your sunglasses!

Do dogs need sunglasses? Well, no, not really. Because of their shorter life span, dogs don’t develop conditions from exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays such as cataracts and macular degeneration like humans do. But pictures of dogs in sunglasses are a hoot!

Why don’t photochromic lenses turn dark when you’re in the car? Because they must be exposed to ultraviolet light to darken. In your car, which most likely has UV-blocking coatings on the windshield, you may need to switch to a separate pair of sunglasses.

Photochromic lenses are a great option for people who wear prescription glasses but don’t want to switch to a different pair when they go outside. The advantage is convenience. Photochromic lenses are infused with a pigment that turns dark when exposed to the sun’s UV light.

Those who wear prescription eyeglasses have 3 main options for sunglasses:
1. Two separate pairs to switch on and off as you go inside and outside.
2. Frames with magnetic clips, for clip-on sun protection.
3. Photochromic lenses that darken when exposed to ultraviolet light.

Are blue eyes more sensitive to light than brown eyes? Yes. Lighter eye colors have less pigment in the iris – so more light enters the eye. If your eyes are highly sensitive to bright light, opt for darker-tinted sunglasses to maximize vision comfort outside.

When it comes to light, our eyes can be glare-sensitive, brightness-sensitive - or both. Many people are more glare sensitive than brightness sensitive. Your eye doctor can tell you where you fall on that spectrum, and recommend the best sunglasses for optimal comfort.
