"Gafas" is the first word that comes to my mind too when I'm talking about "sunglasses" because that's the word I learned in school many years ago.

Because I interact with people mainly from Mexico and Central America, I have learned to use the words"lentes" and "anteojos." If I say "gafas," they understand me, however. That's why I chose to use the words "lentes" and "anteojos" in my original post.

Three viable words for the same object is another reminder of how rich and varied the Spanish language is.
