About a month ago, I lost my polarized sunglasses that right now I cannot afford to replace. I have worn good sunglasses for years, my eyes are really light blue and have always been sensitive.
For the first couple weeks I had worn a cheap pair found at my Husband's work lost and found box. The past 2 weeks have worn nothing since the cheap ones do not provide much relief. My eyes seem super strained and at times I find it hard to see clearly.
Have I damaged my eyes? I do not have medical but now am starting to wonder if I need to afford a trip to an eye Dr. or afford good glasses again. I have been applying homeopathic drops that provide some relief.
No idea if you have damaged your eyes but I'd try wearing a big brimmed hat when out in the sun along with the cheap sunglasses rather than relying on the glasses alone. You could also try Ebay for buying a pair you can afford.
