"Sunglasses" Contact Lenses Now Exist, so Apparently It's 3018

If someone asked you how well you take care of your eyes, what would your answer be? Do you get regular eye exams, give your eyes a break from the computer screen, always wear sunglasses when you step out in the daylight, and properly care for your contact lenses? Our vision is so precious, albeit constantly changing as we age, so whatever we can do to help it stay strong and healthy, we're on board.

Acuvue has created a first-of-its-kind contact lens that's essentially like wearing sunglasses on your eyeballs.
