Indeed, as the summer is heating up and the sun is in the sky longer, eye doctors and experts are warning that not all sunglasses can protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) light.

“The biggest danger with poor sunglasses is if the glasses are tinted but do not block the UV rays. The tinting in the glasses causes the pupils to dilate, since it is perceived as being darker, without the UV blocking. Then more ultraviolet radiation is able to enter the eye,” Dr. Benjamin Bert, an ophthalmologist at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in California, told Healthline.
