Here's the catch: Companies in Canada are following voluntary industry standards for UV protection and no independent agency is actually checking if the claims are accurate, says Samuel Markowitz, a professor in the department of ophthalmology at the University of Toronto.

"As it stands now, it is basically self-declared compliance," he says.
Markowitz suggests that Canadians should "buy from a reputable company. What's a reputable company? "One that probably has large market share and has been around for years and has a reputable public track record. Try to avoid unknown suppliers," he says.
Still, the customer is relying on trust. To eliminate the uncertainty, Markowitz says, you could order a custom-made pair from an eyeglasses supplier, stipulating that you want a UV block.
