I Wear My Sunglasses at Night (and in the Morning)

I love my sunglasses as much as the next girl, but I typically don't start wearing them until lunchtime when the sun is at its strongest. Or so I thought....

New research conducted in Japan found that during Spring, Summer and Fall, Ultraviolet (UV) exposure to the eye during early morning and late afternoon was approximately double that of the mid-morning/early afternoon period that is most often thought of as peak sun exposure time.

Apparently it all has to do with the angle the sun hits your eyes at those times. Think about it, mid afternoon the sun is usually overhead, whereas in the AM and PM the sun can be at eye level, especially if you are driving due east or west.

So maybe check out FabSugar to find a cute pair of sunglasses, especially now that you know you may be wearing them a whole lot more.

Wherever I go, my sunglasses go with me. Those $5.99 Target glasses do the trick for me! Seriously though, I can NOT drive without sunglasses...I've done it a couple of times and almost got into an accident both times.

i wear glasses and only have my sunglasses on an old pair of glasses in the form of magnetic clips. i take them with me but don't put them on that often. i should get some prescription sunglasses, but then i'd have to switch them out anyway. argh. any ideas????

I wear mine from morning to dusk, anytime I am outside or driving in the car. Glad to hear I am doing something right!

i have one pear that i wear whenever it's light out. i'm also the weirdo who wears her sunglasses indoors. they're prescription so it's a hassle to switch my glasses back and forth between going in and out of stores.

I wear mine as long as it's daylight, year round. I've got 5 pair that I switch between. My eyes just can't deal with the brightness.
