I don’t want my hair nor skin to be fried underneath the sun.

Just a few weeks ago I was wondering about the same and found this site on sunglasses for golfers with a lot of good technical information, and, just for the record, nothing to sell. Hope it helps.

Inexpensive lenses are just as effective at blocking UV as the expensive ones as long as they say they block 99-100% of both UVA and UVB. They may not be polarized or have other features like the more expensive lenses, but from an eye health perspective they’re just as good.
Another important feature to look for is coverage. Lenses that wrap around or are very large (think oversized Jackie O. glasses) are more protective.

Are $10 sunglasses just as safe as the $100 pair, just a little less stylish? Are the lenses basically the same?
Is it just the brand and its marketing that make the expensive pairs so much more costly?

Bailey http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/09/most-dressed-person/#comment-20439 Sun, 26 Sep 2010 20:02:42 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=4224#comment-20439 It is very important to be sunwise all year long and especially in summer and early fall. I grew up in the 1950s and ’60s before we knew what we know now about sun protection. Back then doctors and everyone else were saying be out in the sun because its healthy and if you get sunburned just put some ointment on and it will go away in a few days. But today we know that if you get sunburned the surface signs may go away in a few days but your skin has been damaged and you could get skin cancer years from now as a result. So public education about being sunwise is important and the younger you are, the more important it is to know how to be sun smart. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

It is important to put on sunscreen with a high UV index and be in the shade as much possible… thank you so much for the info…
