The Lens Color Of Sunglasses Goes Far Beyond Just Fashion
Did you know that the color of sunglass lenses really does matter? These colors exist for a reason beyond just the aesthetic appeal of sunglasses. Though it does seem ironic that if a music or movie star chooses to don a pair of green shades for their style appeal, green shades start popping up all over middle America. Regardless, colors do have a purpose beyond the rainbow-like appeal.
For example, gray sunglasses appeal to the average individual. These maintain color integrity more than any other pair, and thus the regular Joe appreciates them more than the other colors.
Brown glasses will heighten depth and contrast. As a result, golfers seek these particular shades along with other shades that heighten depth and contrast, like melanin and golden brown glasses that filter out blue light and thus lessen the impact of the sky on the horizon of their drive.
Skiers seem to prefer vermillion or color lenses since these work best during the days that fog lies low. Additionally target shooters and drivers appreciate the clarity that these lenses provide.
Jeff Gordon and Michael Andretti might be seen wearing amber lenses because this particular color improves depth perception and heightens one's ability to see lines. This allows drivers to make split second decisions at top speeds without crashing.
Olympic skeet shooters often wear those anemic looking yellow shades for a reason as well. This particular color will filter out blue light and thus provide plenty of contrast and depth. They also work well with little light like what the shooter might experience at dusk of a tournament.
Rainbow sunglasses just plain look cool. They start out dark at the top and then lesson in intensity all the way to the bottom of the lens. Thus just about anyone driving or working in the especially sunny conditions appreciates them.
Individuals working in low light conditions yet still needing protection will appreciate red lenses. These lenses will enhance eyesight while keep the UV rays from harming one's eyes.
Finally, more than just Top Gun pilots appreciate mirrored sunglasses, though we can see upon examination why they prefer them. These glasses work especially well in bright conditions, like the unmitigated heights of the sky where pilots dive, parry, and scoop.
Everyone wants to look cool, but ultimately the choice of what type of glasses to purchase and wear depends on the user's recreational and occupational habits. If he tends to ski, he will want one color, while if he is an over the road sales men he will want to invest in something else. Regardless, though, of if he is exercises his legs or his mouth, the glasses will protect his eyes from damage that could compromise the quality of his life for years to come. Dark and light shades alike, colored or not, this small investment can literally change a person's life, and yet we do not recognize that until it's too late and the damage has been done.
