Shutter shades are a design of slatted sunglasses. Instead of having lenses, the design is characterized by its “shutter” motif, which is part of the frame. The shades are marketed as suitable for both men and women and are available in an assortment of styles and colors. Depending on the design, Shutter shades may not function as sunglasses; although some models contain UV resistant lenses, many do not, and only feature a series of horizontal plastic “shades,” which neither provide protection for the eye from UV light nor prevent a substantial amount of light from entering the eye.
