WHICH LENS COLOR IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
While many people choose sunglass lens colors for aesthetic reasons, did you know that different lens colors actually serve different purposes? The tint of your sunglasses can enhance your depth perception and reduce eye strain in different environments and activities.
Grey Lenses provide the truest color perception and reduce eye fatigue so they’re great for everyday use. Grey provides the darkest tint with the highest available light reduction.
Brown and Amber Lenses enhance colors and contrast and highlight greens so they’re good for variable everyday conditions. Brown lenses contain a red element which improves depth perception.
Green Lenses are another great choice for everyday use, especially in areas with less intense sunlight. Green tints dim glare while brightening shadows, and provide good contrast for low-light conditions. Green lenses brighten up the world with a light yellow tint, but might not be dark enough for light sensitive eyes.
Pink and Red Lenses are a great choice if you’re on the road a lot. Red and pink tints offer the greatest amount of contrast, improve visual depth, and reduce eye strain which translates into good road visibility.
Yellow Lenses filter out blue light from computer screens and other electronic devices that can cause eye fatigue and headaches. Yellow lenses also provide greater clarity in low light conditions such as fog and haze.
Blue and Purple Lenses are cool and trendy and aesthetically pleasing. Blue lenses reduce glare, enhance color perception and help to define contours.
