sensitive to sunlight and will often have to wear sunglasses, even on an
overcast day, but realised I had only had to wear my sunglasses on sunny days.
they don’t adapt fully behind a car windscreen or indoors, they do help to
filter some of the effects of blue light from computer and device screens as
well as helping to reduce the general glare from overhead lights, and
headlights when driving at night. In general I find they make my vision more
