Tinting a lens can adjust how much light reaches the eyes. A tinted lens an help improve comfort while using a computer, driving or performing outdoor sports.
Solid tints have the same level of colour throughout the lens. Gradient tints are typically darker on the top of the lens and progressively lighten towards the bottom of the lens to help aid near vison.
Mirror coatings are designed to reflect glare in bright light situations.
Double gradient tints are dark on the top and bottom and lighter in the middle. They are a great choice for someone who wants sunglasses that are not too dark but still protect against overhead sunlight and light reflecting off sun, water, snow or sand.
Yellow and Orange tints improve contrast and are good for low light conditions. They can be helpful for driving in overcast conditions. Amber and brown lenses block large amounts of blue light and are often enjoyed by golfers and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
Green lenses improve contrast while keeping colours true. Golfers and baseball players often choose green lenses.
Gray tints reduce overall brightness and keep colours true. They are best used in the brightest light conditions.
