Lens Tint Categories Explained

European Standard for Lens Tint Categories

The colour of any lens plays a critical role in the management of light. Different lens shades and densities make it possible to enhance or preserve the perception of colours, contrast, and visual acuity, and can aid in glare reduction and the elimination of UV rays. Every shade of lens and every treatment applied to them holds a specific function and purpose that allows you to manage your light conditions to meet the demands of your environment or activity. Below is a summary of the categories and typical uses for sunglasses.
