When considering sunglasses, if we think beyond "does it look good?" or "does it feel comfortable?" People can often think that a more expensive pair will protect more, and there may be reasons why it might to do with the fit for example, but all sunglasses sold in the UK must bear a CE mark which means that they will give UV protection up to 380nm. Some like the Polaroid range will gives full UV protection up to 400nm. There are, however, differences between a cheap pair of sunglasses and a more expensive pair.
