    None. :)

    They weaken the iris muscles' ability to adjust to light. Pretty soon people become totally dependent on them as they turn into pale crippled mushrooms who can't cope with the slightest change in ambient light conditions.

    Not so sure about the weakening.. But if you wear "cheap" sunglasses, say dark ones that will allow your pupils to dilate but doesn't have UV protection, it allows more harmful UV's in to damage your eyes.. But if you wear good quality ones that filter UV they will protect your eyes.
    Sunglasses can adjusting the in coming light intensity suitable for our eyes. Make sure the lenses are 100% UV protection..
    So to all you people wearing Dollar General cheapos you're screwing your eyes.

    THIS! and thats why i buy good sunglasses. i get shit from some people i know for having such expensive sunglasses. mom is one of those people.


    also i want to get laser eye surgery. both my brothers have had it, and the doctors recommended Oakleys or some like them because they protect your eyes the best.

    I have blue eyes, and they are pretty sensitive to light!! I can really tell a difference from say my Oakley or spy, to some cheap wal-mert sunglasses!

    Never heard of such a thing. I need to wear sunglasses after working graveyard shifts. It is recommended by my doctor so I have less eye strain.

    Hahaha, ok. What about the fact that the reason people get cataracts is from UV damage?


    I aint from Cali (thankfully) and I have Oakleys.



    I knew there was a good reason for spending several hundered dollars on shades. I actually didn't know about that fact either, scary.


    Oakley sunglasses:
    "UV protection of Plutonite lens material that filters out 100% of UVA / UVB / UVC & harmful blue light up to 400nm"

    It's only a reason, not the reason. Anything can be damaging when overdone... even dependency on sunglasses. ;)

    Same idea... but just from the other side. I rely on my irises to adjust the incoming light intensity suitable for my eyes.

    Not trying to argue, but I doubt people are really depending on or harming there eyes by wearing "good" shades.. Cheap ones yeah they're letting the UV light eff them harder in the eyeball because there eye is now dilated open more.
    You're eyes are still getting the UV damage..
    Check out this article..http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/06/06/bill-mcelligott-sun-damage_n_1573546.html
    But think about your eyes now. Specially the people wearing cheapos.

    as someone who lives in a place where the UV index is in the "Extreme" levels most of the year

    and as someone who developed cataracts while in high school...

    the natural way is great
    supplements to the natural way helps...more
    Like medicine

    left to purely natural devices, many of us would be dead. It's not like our eyes just stop working when we put sunglasses on

    I wear Oakley Oil Rigs with Grey Polarized lenses

    I'm fine with that... :)
    It's ok for each of us to state our different views and to explain how they contrast. When sunglass dependent people get old, most will graduate to the big black mushroom wraparound shades because they can't cope with outdoor ambient light conditions.

    I totally agree. That's even worse than shades dependence.

    I consider the huffpo a dubious source because feminized liberals are afraid of everything. Instead, I go by my own personal life experience, because I'm already old, never use shades, and don't even need regular glasses. And I spend a lot of time outdoors.

    People think of the physical stress of exercise to keep their bodies healthy and fit, but never think of exercise to keep their eyes healthy and fit. Adjusting to constantly changing light conditions keeps our eyes healthy and fit. Shades make lazy eyes. ;)

    Well if I make it to be an old fart, I sure hope I never graduate to big black mushroom wraparound shades, that's for sure. Course they might be cool then who knows..
    As far as the article I was more or less talking about the picture, thought it was a good example of UV damage.. Not a big fan of the feminized Al Gore type sissy's either..
    When it's all said, I'm sure most would agree there's a lot of variables involved with your eye's health just like anything , genetics, exposure blah blah etc. Rock on Shadeless:headbang:
