So You Want To Know What Lens Color Is Best For Sunglasses?


At RX-Safety, we are professionals in the optical safety segment. We take pride in carrying high-quality protective glasses, goggles, and sunglasses for our customers. Our sunglasses in particular come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, levels of protection, and more. Your sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. By blocking out these harmful UV rays, you are also reducing eye strain in bright conditions. This provides added health benefits for your eyes and eyesight. Additionally, the reason that we also consider how protective glasses are is because of the situations in which our customers wear their sunglasses.

In fact, many of our customers wear their sunglasses in environments in which they are exposed to sun, wind, sand, and various other debris. Your sunglasses should protect you from flying debris and other hazards. Finding the right pair is key to your comfort, whether you’re driving to work or climbing a mountain. This is why many of our RX-Safety sunglasses collection is ANSI approved for high impact safety protection! Additionally, you can customize your RX-Safety sunglasses with your own custom eyeglass’s prescription. You can also add our custom lens coatings and options such as different color lenses.

Therefore, with the wealth of different lens color options available for your sunglasses, you might be left with an important question! What is the best lens color for your sunglasses? The answer to this depends on what you need your sunglasses for. Different colors are great for perfect visibility in different environments. Read on below to discover what colors are best for which environments.

1. Gray

This is the most common color you’ll see with sunglasses. This color works for pretty much any weather condition except for those bright, snowy days. Gray is the general-purpose lens of the sunglass world and particularly good with the reflection off the water. 

2. Brown/Tan

This color excels in sunny and partly cloudy conditions, but any other type of weather may give you a bit of trouble. The depth perception is a stand out feature of this type of lens. You’ll see this color is the most popular at the shooting range. 

3. American Green G-15 Ray-Ban Color

This lens is optimized for clarity. It also has a high color contrast. With these features, it gives the wearer a natural vision. This is also a general-purpose lens that will cover you on a daily basis. 

4. Green

Green is up there next to gray with the general-purpose use. It’s good for just about any weather condition except for snow, just like gray. The big difference is it’s not used a lot for driving. Its strength is the contrast it provides in situations of low-lighting. 

Therefore, each of these has different functions that will help you navigate through your activities outdoors! Our customer care team at RX-Safety is also available to help you choose the best pair for you!
