Brent asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Do people who wear glasses have more or less sensitive skin under their eyes?  Maybe due to light refractions? Or does it matter at all?

I love your show, I listen to your podcast every week!!
What do you think?

Don't think it'll make a difference.

Some types of glass do block UV, so depending on the type of glass used in the spectacles,
 the skin around the eye could be less tanned/aged by UV: shielded by the glass lenses.
