Aside from Uv rat­ings and choos­ing the best frame to fit your face, it’s also a good idea to con­sider the color, or tint, of your lens care­fully. each tint af­fects the amount of vis­i­ble light that reaches your eyes and how well you see other colors and con­trasts. To elab­o­rate:

1. Gray: The most neutral lens color, this option blocks ex­cess blue light and al­lows you to see “true” colors bet­ter. Best for: ev­ery­day use.

2. Green: Sim­i­lar to the gray, the green tint has a neutral char­ac­ter­is­tic that main­tains true world colors. It high­lights many nat­u­ral colors and of­fers bet­ter con­trast in low-light con­di­tions while caus­ing less strain on the eyes. Best for: ev­ery­day use and out­door ac­tiv­i­ties in low-light con­di­tions.

3. Brown/bronze: Brown-tinted lenses offer su­perb con­trast, mak­ing it ideal for out­door ac­tiv­i­ties. The color does cause mi­nor color dis­tor­tion due to in­creased con­trast, but provides good vis­ual acu­ity. Best for: Hik­ing and other out­door sports.

4. Cop­per: cop­per tinted lenses are fa­mous among pi­lots, rac­ers and ev­ery­day-driv­ers. This tint also works ex­cep­tion­ally well when golf­ing as it en­hances the white color of a golf ball against sand and grass. Best for: driv­ing and golf.

5. Am­ber/yel­low: yel­low and am­ber lenses en­hance con­trast and block blue light. It doesn’t offer much pro­tec­tion from the sun, but it is the ideal tint to wear around elec­tronic de­vices. Best for: deal­ing with elec­tron­ics.

6. Blue/pur­ple: Of­ten de­scribed as the most fash­ion­able tint, blue lenses also does a good job in re­duc­ing glare (mak­ing it per­fect for sports like ten­nis). Blue­lenses also work great in places where blue is the dom­i­nant color, like near the ocean. Best for: Ten­nis and by the ocean.

7. Pink/red: Red is known for be­ing the most com­fort­able to the eye. Other than that, the red lenses al­lows for bet­ter vis­ual depth as it blocks out blue light. Best for: com­fort.
