Amazon Sued for Faulty Sunglasses

Sep 2, 2017

Amazon is being sued over faulty eclipse sunglasses that allegedly did not provide sufficient protection. Corey Payne and Kayla Harris allege that the sunglasses they bought through Amazon to watch the eclipse “failed to provide adequate eye protection and subsequently partially blinded the couple.” They claim to now suffer from “blurriness, a central blind spot, increased sensitivity, changes in perception of color, and distorted vision.” Amazon made an effort to remove faulty sunglasses prior to the eclipse, but Payne claims not to have received any warning from Amazon. The suit wants funding for “medical monitoring,” monetary damages, punitive damages, and legal fees and costs.
