The Right Hue for You: What is the Best Safety Glasses’ Lens Color?

The answer to the best-tinted safety glasses lens color is it depends. Below is a brief safety glasses lens color guide, but it truly matters what the purpose of tint safety glasses is for you. Simply getting a specific tint because it may look cool may have you missing out on additional safety benefits.

Clear – with blue blocker – While we offer a clear lens choice which can be perfect when there are no issues with lighting conditions, you’ll want to almost always go for one that blocks out blue wavelengths. These blue waves come from looking at digital screens too much, and having the blocker will allow for reduced eye strain and fatigue.

Transition lenses – We offer these in three core options. First, transition gray lenses are the perfect option for tint safety glasses, protecting your eyes against UV radiation and making it easier to see when it’s bright. Next, you can consider transition brown lenses when you want clarity with contrasting colors, such as being on the golf course. Finally, transition Vantage is when you’re looking for safety glasses tint level that will also help against the glare.

Polarized lenses – Whichever tint you’re going for will have you see clearly at all times. Glare from the sun down on the golf course or on the open water while fishing is a problem of the past, and you won’t have to worry about any transition back to clear lenses with these options.

Yellow lenses – For those low-light outdoor conditions, you want to consider getting yourself yellow lenses. They are perfect for the huntsman or as shooting glasses, or even when you’re on the mountaintops skiing.

Orange lenses – If you feel that yellow lenses aren’t providing as much clarity as you want, then this darker shade can help bring back the clarity. Another excellent option for those that do outdoor sports and can be useful even at night or while driving when it’s foggy.

If you want to see other options and get an even deeper look into what these tints can do for you beyond clarity, take a look at our lens colors guide.
