Tennis Glasses

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing between gray and brown lens colors for tennis ultimately depends on personal preference and the specific lighting conditions you encounter on the tennis court. Both colors have their advantages and considerations:

  1. Gray Lenses:
  • True Color Perception: Gray lenses provide a neutral color perception, allowing you to see objects and surroundings in their true colors.
  • Reduced Brightness: Gray lenses effectively reduce overall brightness without distorting other colors, providing a comfortable viewing experience.
  • Versatility: Gray lenses can suit various lighting conditions, including sunny and partly cloudy days.
  1. Brown Lenses:
  • Enhanced Contrast: Brown lenses improve contrast, making objects and the tennis ball stand out more prominently against the background.
  • Depth Perception: The increased contrast offered by brown lenses can improve depth perception, allowing you to track the ball more accurately.
  • Filtering of Blue Light: Brown lenses filter out a portion of blue light, which can be beneficial in reducing glare and improving visual comfort.

Ultimately, some players find that brown lenses work better for them due to the increased contrast and depth perception they provide. In contrast, others prefer the neutral and versatile performance of gray lenses. It’s essential to try on sunglasses with both lens colors and see which offers you the best visual clarity and comfort.

Additionally, consider the typical lighting conditions of the tennis courts you play on. Gray and brown lenses can be suitable if you primarily play in bright, sunny conditions. However, if you frequently play in low-light conditions or under floodlights, you might lean towards brown lenses for their ability to enhance contrast and visibility.

Ultimately, it’s a matter of personal preference and finding the lens color that allows you to see the ball and surroundings most clearly and comfortably while playing tennis.

When choosing the correct prescription tennis glasses, consider the following factors:

  1. Frame Design: Look for frames specifically designed for sports, including tennis. These frames are often lightweight, durable and offer features that enhance performance on the court. Consider a pair of glasses that meets the ASTM F803 safety standards for sports eyewear.
  2. Frame Material: Opt for frames made from lightweight and durable materials that can withstand the demands of physical activity. Common frame materials for sports glasses include nylon, TR-90, and titanium. These materials offer flexibility, impact resistance, and durability.
  3. Fit and Comfort: Ensure that the frame fits comfortably on your face. It should sit securely without slipping or causing discomfort during movement. Look for adjustable nose pads and temple arms that can be customized to achieve a proper fit. Consider frames with rubberized or adjustable temple tips for added stability and comfort.
  4. Lens Size and Shape: The lens size and shape should provide adequate coverage and protect your eyes from various angles. Larger lenses offer better peripheral vision and protect against flying debris. Additionally, consider the curvature of the lenses to minimize distortion and optimize visual clarity.
  5. Prescription Compatibility: Verify that the chosen frame can accommodate your prescription. Some frames have limitations on the range of prescription powers they can handle. Ensure that your prescription falls within the recommended parameters of the frame.
  6. Style and Aesthetics: While functionality is crucial, consider your personal style and aesthetics. Choose a frame that you feel comfortable wearing, and that reflects your taste. Various colors and designs are available, allowing you to find a frame that suits your preferences.
