Why Use Color Tints

Different lens tint colors provide an array of different looks and cause your eyes to react differently to varying light making certain colors more suitable for certain activities and conditions.

Color tints can be for aesthetic reasons, but certain color tints can be applied to sunglasses (as well as regular eyeglasses) for aid in things such as night driving, dyslexia and even color blindness. For example, yellow or orange color tints filter blue light and are used in sports eyewear for cycling, hunting, shooting, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, indoor basketball, handball, racquetball, tennis.

Gradient Tints Gradient tints are tints that are darker on the top half of the lens and then lighter on the bottom half. When looking through the top half, it's tinted just like regular sunglasses. However, when looking through the bottom half, the glasses are crystal clear like regular glasses. This tint is a great lens coating option if you spend a lot of time reading, writing and doing close-up activities outdoors.
