The purpose of the tints
Tints filter light in various ways, and a few tints make a preferred showing of blocking light over others. Some tints heighten the colors, while others misshape them. Tints can reinforce vision in some cases. Although you might like different tinted colors, it may not be the most suitable color for your specific way of life.
There are many colors and styles of sunglasses on the market. The following types of sunglasses lens color guide are recommended to you and tell you how to choose according to your actual needs.
Gray lenses-for that long-term drivers-can distinctly distinguish traffic signals
Gray tinted lens can block the wavelength of each color on average, and the average blocking allows the light to pass through equally, and it is less likely to change the visible color. Gray tint lenses can diminish brightness and dazzle. Therefore, if you want the color of things not to be distorted, you can choose the gray-tinted sunglasses first.
Amber/Brown tint lenses- for outdoor enthusiast - help more accurate visual judgment
Blue light is the main cause of macular degeneration in the retina. Amber/ brown lenses can increase the color contrast and block blue light which allows people to maintain a clear vision during fast exercise. Amber/brown tinted sunglasses can block the glare which is also suitable for indoor or night driving wear. When looking at the scene, the amber or brown color presents a warm orange-red tone, which softens the visual effect and effectively enhances the visual sharpness and contrast. It is better to wear under severe air pollution or foggy conditions.
Dark green tint lens- for people who tend to eye fatigue - decrease the damage of infrared rays to the eyes
The green lens can block the long-wavelength red and the relatively red, reducing the eye damage of infrared rays. The receiving light source is mostly yellow-green, which can improve the comfort of the eyes, prevent the color from being distorted, and reduce the fatigue of the eyes, which is fit for some people who are prone to eye fatigue.
Blue lenses can block long-wavelength colors above blue (red, yellow, etc.), but blue lenses can easily cause high-energy blue light to enter the eye, causing eye fatigue and soreness. Wearing blue lenses in the sun can easily induce cataracts due to the large amount of blue light entering the eyes! If the lens of the sunglasses itself is transparent blue to block other light, it will allow the blue and purple bands of light with higher energy to pass through. It is a less ideal color for outdoor sunglasses.
However, blue flash mirrors or color silver-coated lenses are different from blue transparent tinted lenses. The blue coating can reduce the interference of blue light on the line of sight, and can increase the reflectivity of the entire visible light region. Under the environment, it can effectively reduce the glare, increase the adaptability to the environment, and make the vision clearer. Other colors plus flash mirrors or color silver coating have the same effect, which can help light reflection.
As for other lens colors like red, rose, yellow, etc., they are popular decorations, which can hardly reduce visible light, and are not sunglasses for eye protection. So how dark is the lens color to be appropriate? The darker tint lens color is less effective for eye protection. Picking the correct tinted color will truly resist glare.
For everyday leisure use, you can use gray, brown or green lenses for almost any type of task. Their shade sunglasses will not improve UV protection, but they can be customized for your visual comfort based on your sensitivity to visible light.
Mirror lenses reflect light from the eyes more effectively than ordinary sunglasses, but they do not filter light like polarized lenses.
