Do you know if these are legit?nmycon wrote: ↑Ordered a pair! Thanks!
I missed out on an Amazon.com deal a year ago, polarized 2140s for a similar price... by the time I finished checking out they were OOS >
Ended up getting a pair of non-polarized New Wayfarer's in tortoiseshell instead (and they're awesome!), but I've always been kicking myself for missing out on these!

Fake glasses don't have proper UV protection and will wreck your eyes.

Source? Even the worst lenses should filter UV, it's not that hard.inglourious wrote: ↑Fake glasses don't have proper UV protection and will wreck your eyes.
As for the Ray Ban's, saw this earlier today while on eBay and bought a pair. The same model from Sunglass Hut, but in 54mm, costed me nearly $250 last year. Ended up bringing them back because they too big on my head and I just couldn't justify the price. Patience paid off .

I wouldn't risk it to save a few bucks, however, they're your eyes so do what you want.

Price doesn't matter, either. Many studies — some scientific, published in peer-reviewed journals, and others more on the anecdotal side, by fearless television reporters — have found $15 sunglasses to be as good or better at blocking UV as $400 designer shades.
Better than that, why not actually look at a test?

I'm not seeing the mass fake glasses issue you referred to reflected in your articles:inglourious wrote: ↑More:

You don't know what you're getting with knock off glasses. Just because they're dim, doesn't mean they have UV protection. Do you really trust some Chinese factory producing knock offs made specifically to cheat customers to use proper UV protection?
Point being, unless you buy them from a reputable dealer, you have no idea what you're getting. I'd rather not take the chance because I'm not broke.

"Wearing sunglasses that do not provide enough UV protection may be as harmful as not wearing any at all, explains Praveena Gupta, an optometrist in the ophthalmology and visual sciences department at the University of Texas Medical Branch. ‘Your pupils constrict in bright light and dilate in dim light, so when you wear sunglasses, they dilate. Without adequate UV protection, you are letting more of the harmful UV light into your eyes.’"Kasakato wrote: ↑I'm not seeing the mass fake glasses issue you referred to reflected in your articles:
So does price matter? Sunglasses with hefty price tags aren’t necessarily better than the $20 variety. ‘UV protection costs only pennies so you can get it at any price,’ says Chou. ‘But inexpensive lenses may have marginal optical quality. This won’t do any damage, but the distortion can cause headaches or dizziness that can leave you feeling miserable.’
So how can you make sure that you’re buying a good pair of sunglasses? You don’t necessarily have to spend a ton of money. Of course $100 polarized and polycarbonate lenses will come with the full range of protection, but even cheap drug store glasses are often guaranteed to block some UVA and UVB — a feature that manufacturers can add to plastic lenses simply by dipping them in a special solution, Bizer says, and that can even be added to clear lenses.

So far all your articles do not link price and uv protection conclusively. In fact most have said cheap ($15+) lenses are fine. One specified less than 1% of all lenses tested failed their test. I'm not sure how a reasonable person can conclude fake frames equal poor uv protection.inglourious wrote: ↑"Wearing sunglasses that do not provide enough UV protection may be as harmful as not wearing any at all, explains Praveena Gupta, an optometrist in the ophthalmology and visual sciences department at the University of Texas Medical Branch. ‘Your pupils constrict in bright light and dilate in dim light, so when you wear sunglasses, they dilate. Without adequate UV protection, you are letting more of the harmful UV light into your eyes.’"
"Without UV-protective sunglasses, you are exposing your eyes to hazardous ultra-violet (UV) light that, over time, may lead to cataracts (a clouding of the lens) and macular degeneration (the leading cause of vision loss in the elderly)."
"Yet, according to ophthalmologists, spending the $5 for trendy glasses that don’t block out ultraviolet rays may ultimately cost you more than going without."
"As everyone knows, when it’s really bright out you squint and your pupils constrict to tiny dots — as small as half a millimeter in diameter — to limit the amount of light getting in. When you put on sunglasses, the effect is the same as being in darkened room, the pupil dilates to let in more light."
"Glasses that don’t block UV rays may offer some relief from visible light and reduce your need to squint, but the additional exposure to UVA and UVB can be harmful. “Let’s suppose you put on a very dark pair of sunglasses,” Bizer says, “Your pupil opens up, it dramatically changes in size from half a millimeter to 5 or 6 millimeters. It’s an enormous increase, and now you’re allowing much more [harmful light] into your eyes than if you didn’t wear the cheap sunglasses at all.”
"He recommends buying from a reliable source, and checking for stickers or tags that guarantee to block UVA and UVB. “You should be able to buy a decent pair of [relatively cheap] sunglasses at a reputable place,” he said. That, Bizer says, probably means skipping the street vendors, who are often flogging wares that don’t comply with FDA standards. —By Tiffany Sharples"
I never mentioned cheap glasses at the drug store, I am referring to FAKE Ray Ban's. Fake glasses of any kind aren't "from a reliable source".
Anyway, I am on my phone and this has turned more annoying than it should be. If you want to remain stubborn about it, so be it.
