Original designer sunglasses from Prada or fake eyewear? This distinction is crucial for the safety of our eyes and determines whether they are protected from the sun or exposed to harmful UV radiation.

Although fake sunglasses are usually cheap and easily available, they can damage our eyes in many ways.

Why are fake sunglasses harmful to our eyes?

Fake sunglasses offer little or no UV protection and are therefore even more dangerous for our eyes than no glasses at all. This is because the dark lenses open our pupils, allowing dangerous UV radiation to reach our eyes unhindered.

Also, the lens glass is likely to be of low quality and can easily crack or shatter in an accident. This could badly damage the eye, and in a worse case scenario could lead to blindness.

It's important to look after your eyes and stay away from fake sunglasses. We will show you how to do this in our series 'How to Spot Fake Sunglasses'.

In six articles you will learn how to easily distinguish counterfeit sunglasses Oakley, Carrera, Chanel, Persol or Dolce & Gabbana from the real thing.

Let's take a look at Prada.

1. Check the logo

Pay attention to the logo, especially to the letter R. On original sunglasses this letter has an unmistakable form – the right 'leg' is angled out and is hinged to the rest of the letter with a notched-out space.
