•    Yellow or Orange - emphasises contrast in overcast, hazy or low-light conditions outdoors or for indoor sports. Filters blue light for sharper focus.  Best for: cycling, handball, indoor basketball, skiing, snowboarding, tennis.

•    Red, Rose or Amber - increases contrast in partly cloudy and sunny conditions but can lead to significant colour imbalances.  Best for: cycling, fishing, skiing, snowboarding.

•    Brown, Copper or Dark Amber – will block large amounts of blue light to heighten contrast and visual acuity. Particularly useful to improve contrast on grass and against blue skies.  Best for: cycling, fishing, golf, skiing.

•    Green – will mildly heighten contrast while preserving the balance of colours.  Best for: golf.

•    Grey - reduces the overall brightness while preserving 100% normal colour recognition.  Best for: any outdoor sport taking place in bright light conditions.

So those sporty tinted lenses aren’t just for show after all.
