The UV from the sun is so much more intense it's hard to believe the UV
from a smartphone could be much of a factor. Glare has bothered me since I
was a kid so I've been using "Transitions Lenses" for decades, they darken
almost instantly when I go outside but it
a little longer for them to lighten up when I go inside, but after a few
minutes are as clear as a bell.
