Protecting the eyes relevant? If so: from visible light? Other radiation? From object(s)? Are looks relevant? After dark: after sunset? Would non-sunglasses work? Protective goggles? Welding goggles? Do they do anything relevant to her vision? Does she have poorer vision because she wears them? Does she wear them in front of her eyes? Like sunglasses are normally worn? Is she H? A? F? Does she want to wear them? Does she wear them before dark as well? Is this something she does regularly? Or once? Or during a certain period of time?

Do they improve her vision? Degrade it? Help her to see something specific? Or avoid seeing it? Would all sunglasses work?

is she wearing sunglasses because she broke her normal prescription glasses and these will serve because they are prescription sunglasses?

(if this is right I may have to slash my wrists as this is exactly what happened to my boss the day before you published this puzzle)

(if this is right I may have to slash my wrists as this is exactly what happened to my boss the day before you published this puzzle) A friend of mine told me this as something that happened to her daughter, who is about 21-22, works as a nanny and can't possibly be your boss. So I guess this is fairly common, and no wonder it was a quickie!
cheezburgurs all round for Shez, Kaylee and Galfisk! and thx for not coming through cyberspace and giving me a black eye, in which case I would have to wear dark glasses.}

So that's the spoiler?

Good one -- very much in line with the classics. Simple statement, and simple answer, but very lateral!
