I have been wearing glasses since I was 11 years old. My power has increased from a mere 250 to around 500 now. Oh My Hamsap Eyes!
I cannot live without sunglasses otherwise I would get migraine and throbbing headaches. I knew that sunglasses is a must when you drive in the snowy roads during winter as I experienced brutal winters in North America. It was all white and my eyes got almost blinded to see anything else. I always thought that I knew all about sunglasses until recently.
Nearby the factory hubs where I work, there are several peddlers hawking their wares by the five foot ways outside the shops. There was this friendly Malay guy who often called me out to buy his sunglasses. I politely replied him that I am short sighted and his powerless lenses would not help me to move around. Suddenly he brought out those huge sunglasses that could be worn over our powered spectacle frames and started his sales talk. I stood and listened.
Speaking like a qualified Dr. Optician, he explained that only Polarized Sunglasses should be worn to protect our eyes besides shielding away glares that hindered our partial visibility. Take a look at his sticker on the mirror now.
Our naked eyes could see a man with a fishing rod.
Now Dr. Optician placed his polarized sunglasses over the same sticker and the fisherman has caught a huge fish which could not be seen with our naked eyes!!
I was speechless!
Dr. Optician explained that only those sunglasses with the Polarized Sticker on the lenses are the suitable ones. That was interesting to me! Maybe I should get one and see something else too!
