Squinting in bright sunlight
#15
I don't think it is necessary to squint in the bright sunlight to avoid any harm for the eyes - in my opinion they are perfectly capable to protect themselves by widening and narrowing the pupil according to the brightness of the light.
I just keep my eyes as relaxed as possible, close my lids a bit more than without sunshine just so that I fell comfortable - and enjoy the sunlight on my eyes and half-closed eye lids, knowing that it is good and not harmful for my eyes.

On the contrary, using sun glasses might be even more dangerous, as they can't filter off all dangerous parts of the sunlight and prevent the eyes from doing so by themselves, because the sunlight becomes so dark through the sun glasses that the pupil reflex won't work to the same extent.
