Sunglasses are a kind Must be at any time of the year. They can protect your eyes from UV rays and reduce the chance of developing diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration. They can also reduce eye fatigue when it is bright outside and eliminate glare while driving. (Glare is also a problem when driving in snow!) In addition, they help protect your eyes from wind, rain or flying debris.
Any pair of cheap anti-UV glasses will do-you can find a good choice in drugstores or discount stores like TJ Maxx or Ross-but some of our Gear team is when we run, hike, swim, or walk. I tried dozens of sunglasses, wandered in the sun, and then drove. These are our favorites.
Update July 2021: We have tested a large number of new glasses and added new glasses for 2021.
