Most of us have gotten the message that protecting our eyes from sunlight can help keep them healthy. But shopping for a pair of shades can be confusing.

From the different terms used to describe degrees of UV-blocking power, to the merits of one lens colour over another, an optician and an optometrist break down what you need to know, and weigh in on which features are must-haves, and which ones are more a matter of preference.

Find out what they had to say in my latest Good Times‘ Reader’s Question column: What should I look for in a pair of sunglasses?

Thank-you to the two interviewees:
