These look like the cheesy cheap sunglasses that ophthalmologists dole out to old folks after cataract surgery. Anybody who has a clue about physiology and optics knows that decreasing the amount of light to your eyes results in pupil dilation, with exacerbates all the optical defects in your eyes' lenses. If you are in bright light and are nearsighted with astigmatism (as I am) you will see WAY better than if you are wearing sunglasses or are in a dimly-lit environment.

AS an ABO-certified optician, I used to consult with patients regarding coatings, tinting, etc, of the glasses that I made for them, and it's WAY more complex than these cheesy ads portray.
