Pictures. I've heard the question posed as to why somebody would wear a backwards hat. Sensitive blue eyes and contact lenses- so the Sun really burns, even through sunglasses. When the Sun glares at an angle, I use the brim of my hat at various angles throughout the day to block the Sun. Sometimes it's straight, sometimes off to the side. When I'm not using it at all, to the back. When it's to the back, the brim protects the back of my neck from Sunburns. Sensitive skin..
