Question about sun glasses

Postby arya6000 » Wed May 07, 2008 8:43 pm


I had PRK and the doctor told me to wear my sunglasses 6 months to 1 year, I'm not in the same state as I got my PRK and those sun glasses broke, I purchased another one that claimes to be 100% UV blocking but its not as dark. Does being dark make any diffrence on keeping eyes safe from sun rays? Is UV blocking all that I need?

Thank You

What is most beneficial is 100% UVA and UVB light blocking sun glasses. The darkness of the glass is for your preference.

I had Lasik and had quite a bit of light sensitivity for several months. Even at a year+ out, I think I am a bit more sensitive than most folks.

I bought at pair of Maui Jim sunglasses that cost $238 (I thought Lasik ended expensive glasses purchases!), and I love them. I think mine are the Lahaina model.

They don't make things too dark, but they cut out the glare and brightness, and they are very light. I am VERY happy I chose them, after trying all the major brands and having price as no object. I wanted the best I could find.

Good Luck!
