I have always bought gen sunglasses but fakes are pretty excellent nowadays. After my second pair of persols cracked i got kind of turned off gens. Read up and pick up some reps on aliexpress or something.
>>10848376 >2016 >falling for this meme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ACWTG8I7KY I actually watched a better video of some guy running the tests in his garage, much more transparency than sticking them in a machine that pumps out a number, but they both come to the same conclusion: the "cheap glasses will fuck up your eyes" is just a platitude probably pushed by the companies that make expensive eyeglasses.
>>10848664 I'm no research professor, but if one is to conduct a test to determine a physical property of a material....wouldn't one find it best to follow a scientific method?
-The sample size alone of 31 pairs is horribly low to make any proper conclusions. also 31 is a horribly arbitrary number. Why not 100 or 50. 1 in 31 pairs that's about 3.2 percent of glasses that are not safe, with 100million bought a year (as reported), then that's at least 3.2MILLION unsafe sunglasses!!!!!!! IS THAT NOT SOMETHING ALARMING??? They write it off as negligible, that's 6.4MILLION eyeballs exposed to UV rays..
-The report did not seem to keep track of what pairs where bought where, what price each one was, blah blah ...a lot of information could have been extrapolated
- Worse of all, the reporters made grand conclusions, and statements based on their "results", and they misinterpreted what the doctor tells them about the "tint" being bad. They are not educating the public, how can they if they don't understand the mechanism themselves... Wearing sunglasses that were determined to be unsafe, and then admitting it like the reporter did makes you lose credibility, don't reporters NEED credibility? Mispronouncing a word like "Photometer" furthers that lost credibility...
It is my hope that a reporter would be credible and understand what they are reporting, and know HOW to report. Bad methods lead to bad results, that leads to bad conclusions and bad advice. If one is conducting research then one should understand fundamentals in order to make a SIMPLE report like this effective.
Now i find myself thinking, " What are these reporters doing that I cant? Why do I need them, or why do i need to watch them to be informed? A bit of critical thinking, and I can know more about them on a subject I know little about"
Glad i didn't go to journalism school ...Pssshhhhhhhhhhhhh
>>10846923 op, see this cuck >>10849977 prime example of someone who shouldn't even get sunglasses in the first place, not to mention that "they're not as good at blocking the sun" kek he's basically allowing his eyes to get damaged by the false sense of security his knock-offs give him. look, you don't HAVE to buy expensive sunglasses, but make sure they do offer UV and all those other sorts of protection. also, don't buy them if you won't use them frequently/aren't in a notably 'sunny' area, otherwise good job, you just wasted money that could've gone to something more relevant to you than a situational piece.
>>10846923 just go to your local mall, with friends, and steal a pair or two of real ray bands. I have 4 pairs of stolen 300$ glasses, who the fuck actually buys these things. It's just stupid, "poor fag steals like a peasant" haha ya but I have ray bands and I didn't waste money that I could have spent on a night out with friends. Some people are so fucking stupid.
Holy shit I really did kek. Look, dude, just stop sperging over retarded bullshit, not everyone is an albino who can't handle minimal amounts of sunlight, my knockoffs work okay and they look cool, so everything's great.
