    I think we only need to wear sunglasses when there are unusually bright conditions. For example, if we are in the snow up in the mountains. I don't own sunglasses.

    However, some people use them for working tasks. For example, if you drive toward the sun for hours, you can't turn away.

    Colson has an interesting argument going! I think cataracts exist worldwide, though. Because I read about an Indian guy who developed an $15 method for removing them (a sort of human conveyor-belt surgery, with minimal prep and simplified procedures), and goes around the world doing it.

    There is also some evidence floating around that suggests wearing sunglasses can contribute to skin damage from the sun. The thought is that the eyes play a part in signaling the body to produce melanin. Wearing sunglasses would hinder this. The hazy conditions your practitioner mentioned might also trick the eye. I found this info when researching the decision to buy my infant sunglasses for the beach.

    Thanks, ladies! I just started waffling on my sunglasses and wore them yesterday. I do squint some without them, but my eyes don't hurt. They are staying off unless at the beach.

    Thanks again!
