Sunglasses protect your eyes against the harsh glare and UV rays and reduces strain in bright conditions so you may enjoy a clearer, comfortable vision. However, choosing the right pair of shades is the key to optimal comfort.
Colored or tinted sunglasses don't just exist to go with your dressing for the day. The distinct lens colors help protect your eyes, but in different ways. With so many lens colors to choose from, you need to know which one suits your purpose best to enjoy maximum perks.
Differences In Tints
Different tinted sunglasses have different purposes. Each color is suited to enhance vision in certain conditions. A tint that works ideally in low-light conditions may not be the best option to wear on a bright day. Instead of improving your vision, it may actually have the opposite effect. Similarly, certain colors work well in bright conditions but won't perform well on a hazy day.
Consider your lifestyle and the kinds of activities you're often involved in to choose the best color of sunglasses for yourself.
