tinted lenses

Optic Topic by Steven A. Queenan at Regional Eye Optical – Week of June 1, 2019

Tinted lenses add a dash of customization to any eyeglasses. They are particularly popular in rimless eyeglasses and shields. Gradients are the most sought-after of the tints. They feature color shading that goes from dark at the top of the lens to lighter at the bottom edge.

A current favorite is a faded gradient blue tint with a “flash mirror coating.” Also gaining in popularity are two-color gradient tints, such as amber fading to pink and blue fading to purple.

A flash mirror coating allows onlookers to see the wearer’s eyes and helps reduce the glare coming off snow, water and other shiny surfaces. In addition, there are the ever-trendy clear gray gradients with flash mirror coatings. Able to be worn day or night, indoors our outdoors, they are ideal for moving from the bright sun outside to darkly lit interiors.
