Designer sunglasses look good and provide more protection from the sun
Patients often ask if a $20 pair of sunglasses offers the same protection as a more expensive, name brand, pair. The answer is, it depends but in most cases, no. In some cases discount glasses will provide decent UV protection but they may break easier or the UV protective coating may not be very durable.

Sunglass standards for lenses place limits solely on UVB and UVA rays, but bear in mind that both the standards and labeling are voluntary, not mandatory. According to these standards, sunglasses must block at least 70% of UVB and at least 60% of UVA.
To best protect your eyes, look for sunglasses that provide at least 98% protection from both UVA and UVB rays. UVC rays are blocked automatically since they are absorbed in the atmosphere and do not reach the earth. Some of the higher-priced products with polycarbonate, glass or plastic (CR-39) lenses can claim to block 100% of the UV rays. These lenses will provide the absolute best vision while also being very durable and in many cases scratch resistant.
With sunglasses you get what you pay for. A $20 pair will most likely not block more than the minimum amount of UV rays. Furthermore, the lens quality will not be as good. Which means the clarity or crispness of what you view through the lens will be diminished. This is very noticeable when driving or for sportsman type activities.
Another important factor is safety. A cheap lens is prone to shattering needless to say this could cause serious eye injury. More expensive lens such as those made by Oakley, Bolle, Maui Jim, etc., will provide excellent protection if they are impacted by foreign debris.
