Sunwear tints aren't just for looks. Your color choice
depends on how and when you use your sunglasses. The darker the tint, the more light it absorbs.
Gray reduces brightness without distorting color,
providing true definition. A popular general-purpose color, it's ideal for outdoor
activities in bright conditions.
Yellow or orange provides high contrast in overcast
or hazy conditions to make objects look sharper. Either color is perfect for outdoor
sports (like cycling) or indoor sports (like racquetball).
Brown improves depth perception and contrast in
both bright and overcast conditions. For sports, this color lets more light reach
your eyes so you can focus on the tennis ball, baseball, football, golf ball—whenever
judging distance is important.
Green reduces eyestrain in bright light and keeps colors
true. It provides good contrast between objects to enhance visual sharpness. It's
great for golf, tennis, and other precision sports.
Rose soothes eyes exposed to intense light. It filters
glare and provides high contrast for increased definition when viewing
objects against blue or green backgrounds. Rose eases eyestrain too, especially
when working on computers or under fluorescent lighting.
Fade in the Shade
Gradient tints are darker on top then fade to no tint on the bottom. They're ideal
for driving sunglasses because you see as easily inside the car as outside. Popular
with skiers, a double gradient tint has a full tint at the top and bottom, and a
medium tint in the center.
Switch It Up
Sunwear frames with interchangeable lenses are a great investment if you're a skier
or involved in sports with changing requirements, environments, and light conditions.
Another plus—you can easily replace scratched or damaged lenses.
