Well, again, most of the previously identified handles do not suggest business enterprises.
As for why someone in the image consulting business would be promoting the use of sunglasses, you surely cannot be as naive as that. Most people I know who want to block light from their eyes during a flight close the blinds and/or wear sleep masks. But why promote those, when they're not a fashion accessory? You don't need an image consultant to advise you want kind of $5.99 sleep mask looks best for the shape of your face, do you?
I have to say though, this 'Medical News Today', seems like a very serious publication, what with the little graphic of the hottie blonde in surgical scrubs (to what purpose exactly?).
He added that immigration officials often ask you to take your sunglasses off - this can weaken the benefits.
Yeah, because taking off your stupid Ray-Bans for 5 seconds to allow an immigration official to match your mug against your passport is going to counteract the beneficial effects of eight hours of wearing sunglasses. Seems plausible.
