Today, we have many different options to choose from, making it much easier to find the right lens to suit our needs perfectly. It is important to determine which one is the right one for you!
Grey lenses are in demand because they are dark enough to make those annoyingly bright sunny days more contrasted. These lenses are described by scientists to be “colour – neutral” meaning that they are able to cut down the brightness significantly but do not distort the colours you see. This is especially good for drivers as you will still be able to recognise traffic signals and warning signs whilst on the road, providing the same level of safety, if not more. You can also partake in sporting activities when wearing these lenses, for example, you can do the following: baseball, running, cycling, fishing, water sports and motorcycling.
If you live in the sunnier parts of the world and you sometimes experience cloudy weather, then these would be the right lenses for you. If you want to increase the contrast and enhance clarity then you should try these, but be aware that in some instances colour imbalances could occur. They are still suitable for daily activities like golfing, driving , using the computer, shooting, skiing, tennis and mountain biking.
Like the grey lenses, brown and green coloured lenses are colour neutral. They are known as the ultimate driving companions, this is mainly attributed to the contrast and added visual depth that they bring to the table. Even though this colour is known to alter the colour balance, it will not affect your ability to read signs or warnings whilst on the road. If you spend a lot of time on the computer and suffer from strain caused by the glare, then these brown lenses will be able to help you. For those who spend a large amount of time on the road and enjoy playing outdoor sports and using the computer, these lenses are perfect for you.
The blue and purple lenses are mainly used for fashion purposes, however many athletes have been known to prefer them as they offer good contrast in mid to bright conditions. With good colour perception they are also perfect for cloudy and overcast weather conditions. They are good for fishing, outdoor leisure activities, skiing and snowboarding and any other snow activities.
The rose and red lenses are known for their abilities to increase depth of field and vision. They reduce eye strain and provide good visibility whilst on the road. They comfort the eyes and help adjust contrast. They are good in most weather conditions which include: cloudy, sunny, partly cloudy and snowy.
If you like sporting activities like, cycling, driving/racing and skiing then these are the lenses you will want.
