    some people choose glasses by the appearance, but not all glass in optical shop are qualified, inferior glasses hurt your eyes, increse the risk of cataract. And cataract will make you lose your sight when you are old. So you must be careful when you choose your glasses. and you'd better buy glasses from formal optical shops.

    Really? I have never heard about that. The ray ban sunglasses are made of glass. But they are of good quality and very popular. I think the dizziness may caused by the scratches. If there are severe scratches on the lenses, it means that the lenses can't protect the UV rays for you. Too much exposure to sunlight may lead to dizziness. And plus the scratched lenses can't provide you with clear vision. You may suffer from eye strains and dizziness too. So I suggest you to buy a pair of new sunglasses with UVA protection. And the symptoms won't happen again. Good luck!

    If you think your problems are caused by glass sunglasses, I suggest you to try a pair of plastic sunglasses. The lenses of this kind of glasses are made of a kind of plastic, which can function as well as glass lenses. But I think the most important thing is to maintain your sunglasses after not using them. If the lenses are badly damaged, you can't use them again because they may cause problems such as eye strain or dizziness for you.

    I can't agree with you on this point because if the glass sunglass can cause blindness, nobody will use them anymore. But the fact shows that nowadays glass sunglasses such as ray ban sunglasses are still very popular.

    I think your relative should have his or her eyes checked by an eye doctor. He may have other kind of potential healthy problems other than vision problems. Usually scratched sunglasses will not cause those serious damages to your eyes. They won't lead to blindness. But we do not suggest people to go on wearing a pair of scratched sunglasses for they can't block UV rays and they may lead to blurry vision. If your relative drives, the scratched sunglasses may cause vision problems and may possibly lead to an accident. So I strongly suggest you all not to wear scratched sunglasses in future.
