  • Eyes are important so that we need to protect them carefully. Sunrays would damage eyes with UV light. Before you know whether this sunglasses have UV protection or not, you'd better not to wear them when you need to expose to bright sunrays. Optometrist should be able to tell whether the glasses have UV protection or not. Usually they can test it with UV meter and UV flashlight. Normally we thought the darker color of the lens is the better UV protection they have. Actually this concept is wrong. Brown is popular color which can filter almost all UV lights and gray can prevent most UV rays meanwhile maintain the natural color. Unqualified sunglasses might cause bigger damages than wearing no sunglasses. So I would like to suggest you find out whether they are good protection from UV, then decide whether you wear them or not.

  • I am not sure if the optometrist can tell whether the sunglasses have UV protection. But I have heard that there is a machine to test how much UV rays can the sunglasses block.You can have a ask in the optical store.

  • In terms of quality is okay to buy from Costco, there are two things to keep in mind if you buy from them.If the wholesale is to a large distance from you, need to make a calculation about the costs of gas and everything that involves the way there and back. If you go there only for these lenses, and these expenses exceed 50$-70$ means you do not save any money. Then it is better to buy from the nearest optical store these lenses.Another aspect to keep in mind is that you need a membership to buy at Costco. (Talking about another way of selling). 

  • You totally can take a look at firmoo.com, there are many good cheap glasses, most of them are sold under $40 for one pair. I purchased glasses from them frequently, the quality is ok and the shipping is very fast. I highly recommend them to you. I hope it helps.
