Sunglasses - Healthy or Stupid?

Some people wear sunglasses to look super rad. Some people wear them to protect their eyes.

Well I say nay!

Sunglasses (besides possibly disrupting physical functions like melatonin production) are a barrier to raw human contact. It's so much easier to connect with each other when we have eye-to-eye contact.

So bear yourself to the world! Take off your sunglasses and LOOK at people!!! :)

I have never liked sun glasses.  I keep a pair in my car to use for driving, but other than that just don't wear them.  It has always bothered me when people wear them inside.  I think it is popular to keep them on if you are using drugs to hide your eyes.

One awesome thing that I noticed in my experiences wearing sunglasses, is that you can take them off... even when talking to others.

Lol thank you.

Come on people. BE RESPONSIBLE & ADULT. Of course if you are doing extreme activities in direct sunlight you need to protect your eyes. Use COMMOM SENSE. Josh is not referring to you putting your naked eyes in extreme conditions. He is talking about wearing them any other time. Now every body please look after your individual needs & consider having some regular moderate exposure to sun without sunglasses.

I agree with Alysa. I wear them if it is extremely bright outside but I take them off whenever I stop to talk to someone. I think is rude also to not take them off.

I wear them when I bike if it's bright out, but that's it.  Well okay I admit that sometimes I'm self conscious and it's easier to not make direct eye contact with every person I pass.  It can be overwhelming to me!  I do take them off when speaking to someone, however.

I think people don't get enough sunlight into their eyes - with or without sunglasses.  You can wear sunglasses and get enough sunlight into your eyes taking them off.  You can get too little sunlight sitting inside all day, which I think is the real reason people have melatonin issues, too busy working on their playstation tans.  
I'm used to sunglasses and find my eyes are sensitive to sunlight in the middle of summer here, but I can manage with a hat shielding my face.   But I would never sit talking with someone and keep them on, or even if I bumped into someone on a walk, I lift them off. It's very rude to me to keep them on.

Being a fair-skinned, blue eyed celt, I am not designed for  the fierce sunlight in the antipodes so I need to wear sunglasses to protect my eyes. But I NEVER keep my sunglasses on when I interact with people. To do so would awfully bad mannered, IMO.
