    I'm sure there'll be somebody more knowledgeable than me on the subject … I'm sure there'll be somebody more knowledgeable than me on the subject that can verify, but I thought ALL sunglasses sold in the UK must be UV400, so they'll be just as safe as a £200 pair of Gucci's.



    I'd say safer, as it's unlikely anyone is going to try and mug you for a pair of £4 Aldi gigs!!

    Does anyone need sunglasses in the UK?Total waste of money IMO, lol!


    Yes, yes they do. Unless of course you are one of these people who drive during the summer or during low sun, pull out in front of people then tell the police that "the sun was in my eyes".

    Polarised glass are brilliant for driving! Hopefully they look ok but if not who cares for driving.

    Whatever the price of your education....it wasn't worth it.
    They look pretty nice to me
    Good price, bought a couple before to keep in the car, cycling gear and for beach holidays.
    I never posted it, but I was in Choice (the shop that sells discounted Next items) and noticed they had a few different men's/women's polarised sunglasses for £2.99-£3.99

    An example of the ones I picked up (£2.99 - found them on the Next website, however, the lens are grey)

    Don't you have any homework to get busy with over Easter?
    Will be a cheap headband option for those that have them stuck on the top of their heads.

    These will be great for outdoor sports - cycling / sailing etc - protect your eyes, but if you loose them you won't cry.

    These days many 'premium' sunglasses look worse than the fake copies and feel cheap - Oakley I'm looking at you for one.
    Thanx for sharing Op. If I find a pair I like I'll buy them & wear them with pride don't give a rats bottom what others think.... HEAT
    Ideal for in the car.

    Cheers OP!

    Yep,ray ban is another overpriced,made for buttons and marked up severely.Still got a few pairs fro the 80s,made in USA and still going strong,wouldnt touch any of the new ones.
    Considering how long sunglasses usually last around me, I'd be stupid to spend any more.
    90% of branded glasses come out of the Luxottica factories in italy!! then brands buy up and sell on for a massive profit
    I have a good laugh at all these "you'll go blind" nonsense posts. All ridiculous and made up by industry people trying to keep you paying ridiculous prices.
    I have NEVER heard of anyone going blind or even having eye sight problems from wearing cheap Sun Glasses.
    And if anyone is going to post anything saying I'm wrong post proof at the same time and by proof I mean proof of someone it happened to.

    It's quite straight forward as to why fake/cheap foreign sunglasses are dangerous to wear.

    In sunlight your pupils become smaller due to the excess of sunlight. Behind sunglasses your pupils dilate allowing more light in the eyes.

    UK bought sunglasses will have UV filters by law, foreign or fake sunglasses may not. By wearing these sunglasses you are allowing more UV to enter the eye compared to not wearing any sunglasses at all, due to the dilation of the pupils.

    UV is proven to cause damage to the eyes.

    Good programme on 'trust me I'm a doctor' a few months ago, showed that the cheapest pair of sunglasses were as good at getting rid of uv400 as £150 pair, so long as they are bought in the UK.

    hmm this is interesting and makes me concerned for my tinted visor on my motorbike, but I don't see any polarised options and in bright sun no tint is not an option

    You are spot on, any sunglasses bought within UK have to satisfy the regulations and even if they cost a £1 they have to provide adequate UV protection. Although this doesnt apply to any sunglasses bought online as some are dispatched from overseas.
    can't go wrong with aviators, better to buy these than fakebans, I have a pair of rayban polarised and better for driving, I will buy a pair of these for my holiday, then if I lose/break them it doesn't matter. I have a pair of tinted lidl reading glasses which are very good too. Will pop in tomorrow to take a look, thank you OP.
    It's worth mentioning that:
    Lens Tint...
    UV Protection...
    Polarisation...
    are all different things, and it is possible to have tinted glasses without the protection. Polarised lenses go far beyond just normal sunglasses, improving colours and reducing glare and reflection. If the polarisation on these is any good, then this is an
    Maui Jims are where it's at

    I buy a couple of pairs every year and throw them away when scratched.
    They are actually rather good and are polarizing which is far better than a pair of "designer" sunglasses with tinted lenses.
