      I get so tired of losing or scratching expensive sunglasses. Currently, my favorite pair only cost me $23.

      I agree on cost not necessarily equating to UV protection. Consumer Reports says that even a cheap pair can provide sufficient protection -- I always get the most affordable but can read about the UV benefits on the label. Voting this Up and Useful.
