UV therapy in the 19th c[edit]

Finsen lamp-1900.jpg

It should maybe be noted in the history section that sunglasses were widely used by doctors and patients in the 19th century who participated in UV therapy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brianshapiro (talkcontribs) 01:56, 23 April 2014‎

A sentence in the section "Visual clarity and comfort" it states: "The glare is neutralized by blocking the vertical (magnetic) components of light."

The magnetic' and 'vertical' component of light are NOT synonymous. The magnetic component of light is not exclusively vertical, it can be, e.g. from the sun or any other unpolarized light source, in any orientation.

Red question icon with gradient background.svg Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 00:32, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

@EvergreenFir: I'm not the original requester, but I do agree with them. Really, the entire sentence is wrong. A polarizer doesn't block any single component of light (ie: the electric or magnetic component). It does block light based on the orientation of its electric field (usually, depends on the construction and nature of the polarizer, though sunglass polarizers discriminate on electric field), but the transmitted light still (necessarily) has both an electric and magnetic field component. This is described in some detail here: Polarizer#Absorptive_polarizers Given that the sentence above the one in question describes a little of what polarized lenses are doing, it may be best to just link the Polarization article itself again (it is linked in the previous section already) and leave it at that.

In order to conform to the template's requirement:

please change "The glare is neutralized by blocking the vertical (magnetic) components of light." to (nothing) -=Avilister=- 02:36, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Editing the Sunglasses page (I am new to this, see at least 2 errors, and just wanted to see them corrected)[edit]

I have no idea how to go about this...I've never edited Wikipedia before and this seems complicated. Just noticed at least 2 errors on the Sunglasses page that are minor, but still...wrong.

  1. 1: Under "Teashades", marijuana is said to be an opiate. Chemically, this is untrue.
  1. 2: Under "Wayfarers", the 1980's TV show "Moonlighting" is called "Moonlightning".

This was probably not worth my time, but as this is now used as a source of authoritative knowledge by many, such basic mistakes irked me. I still didn't find out much about cat-eye glasses and gave up reading this error-filled page.

Thank you. --SetonCram (talkcontribs) 01:00, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Done And thanks for pointing these errors out. There is Cat eye glasses if that helps any, it's a rather short article. Cannolis (talk) 13:15, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

In "Function/Assessing Protection" the caption of the Polaroid sunglasses picture is "Polariod Sunglasses". This seems to be a typo. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 150.147.110.247 (talk) 00:26, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

This error is still present: maybe it is time to drop the semi-protection. 2A02:1205:5019:1210:81B1:5334:FC2E:E9F7 (talk) 10:21, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
