Do all sunglasses have 100 uv protection?

I got some sunglasses from venice beach today for 10 bucks. They didn't have a sticker that said anything about uv. The lenses are pretty dark btw. I also have a pair from forever 21. I forgot to read the sticker but I see online, all their sunglasses have 100 percent uv protection. And those were only like 6 bucks. So which ones are better?

    I guess the pair you got from forever 21 is better . Sunglasses will have "100% UV protection" or other stickers on them if they can protect UV rays .The amount of uv protection sunglasses provide is unrelated to the color and darkness of the lenses. A light amber-colored lens can provide the same UV protection as a dark gray lens. If you are unsure if your sunglasses block UV rays, take them to your optician and ask. Most eye care providers can test the lenses to tell how much protection your lenses will provide. Your optician can also provide you with more information about protecting your eyes from harmful rays and help you create a protection plan that's right for you.

    Well, as you can see sunglasses are supposed to protect our eyes from harmful lights such as UV UB ,etc. However, sometimes there are actually some sunglasses of poor quality and they are just fake products which could only give you better looks and provide no protection against some harmful lights. I mean, you simply could not get a pair of nice sunglasses with a real sticker at 6 or 10 bucks right? So, I suggest that you had better get them through some official websites. Yours may even do harm to your eyes.

    The one you get from the forever 21 will be better because of the 100 percent uv protection. Some sunglasses may not own such function on the coating part but with cool and fashionable appearance. You could bring the sunglasses to the real store to let the client have a look. Then you will know its realness in function.
