Rose lenses are quite different from red lenses. Though they appear to be light red or pink, rose lenses are designed to let more light in and are typically best for medium to low light conditions. These lenses are often used for skiing and snowboarding goggles and glasses because they increase contrast with the snow and provide better vision for overcast and stormy days. Unlike red lenses, rose -- sometimes called vermilion -- lenses are not suitable for bright, sunny weather where you'll be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods, because they allow a higher VLT. According to the Vision Council, an eyewear industry association, some people like rose lenses best for comfortable, prolonged wear.

Yellow lenses are the choice of many athletes and professionals working outdoors. They absorb blue and ultraviolet (UV) light and offer depth and contrast in conditions that are otherwise stressful on your eyes.
Yellow lenses offer the greatest depth perception and contrast because they filter out blue light. This is important for sports such as hunting and skeet shooting because yellow lenses filter the blue light of the sky, allowing you to see the smallest movement.
Ultraviolet Light Absorption
Amber or yellow lenses provide sharpness and contrast in hazy light conditions because they absorb UV and blue light making everything seem brighter. This makes them good for working around dawn or dusk and on overcast or foggy days.
Decrease Eye Fatigue
If you do a lot of driving, yellow lenses helps decrease fatigue because they add contrast to your vision. Yellow lenses also decrease fatigue when driving in the evening because they increase visual clarity. This is why bikers and pilots often use yellow lenses.
