When I lived 1.5 miles from the beach in sunny Florida, I did not wear sunglasses. It wasn't until I moved out of the dorms and over a mile from Platteville's campus did I find value in sunglasses. It started as a protection from the falling snow in winter and then the salt and sand that is brushed up by wind in spring. Soon, I recognized the benefits of covering my eyes from the harsh sun rays as well as all the junk that falls from the sky. Now, I wear sunglasses every time I leave the house. I have two pairs of Fossil sunglasses that accompany me throughout the day. I try on new glasses every time I'm in a store that sells Fossils. But really, I'm shopping on a replacement only policy now.
