Once you get indoors, it is considered polite to take off your shades. Putting away your sunglasses in your handbag or tucked in the pocket of your shirt should be the first thing you should do when you step inside a house or building.

Making the excuse of protecting your eyes from the glare of lights is not a good thing. Furthermore, it limits your visibility making it difficult to move around especially in the dark.

On the same note, you should also remove your shades once the sun disappears on the horizon. It is very dangerous to drive in the dark. They won't protect you from the glare of headlights and you need to see well without the encumbrance of sunglasses.

Putting on sunglasses outdoors is the norm. However, when socialising with people, it is best to take them off as a sign of respect towards others. Sunglasses especially polaroid ones can become very distracting. Moreover, it might be perceived as rude if you carry on a conversation with friends or acquaintances and they don't even see your eyes.

You might think that wearing sunglasses is appropriate even when working on DIY projects. The bad news is your shades will not protect you from the dust whilst drilling a hole on the wall or the sparks that fly when welding. Get special gear that protects the eyes, ears and hands when doing this type of work and not rely on your sunglasses no matter how attached you are to them.
