Why can't I just get a pair of sunglasses that's dark enough?

I have tinted polarized wrapped sunglasses that are nominally 80% tint. I use them for driving and for flying and find that they are not dark enough for either. The old glasses are scratched and it's time for new ones. One local optician refuses to sell me anything darker than 80% and another says driving will be dangerous with a 90% tint. I've never owned a pair of sunglasses that actually relieved the squinting outdoors and suspect my eyes are more sensitive than most.

    First, I must say that what you are describing me about squinting all the time and headaches because of the light may point to an eye condition that can be meet in several situations.  I suggest you to make a complete ophthalmological consultation, because maybe the problem is there and can be cured.

    I believe that a complete analysis of your eyes may find a real issue and remove it. you can go and buy a good pair of sunglasses to help you.about the standard eyeglasses, I can tell you that 80% it is indeed a dark shade for a normal eye and anything above it it is considered too dark and they are special occasion glasses (welding, sun-watching, iron melting ) usually professional special lenses.
