Hunters - Choosing a Lens Color
If you’re a shooter, you already know that shooting safety glasses are an absolute necessity every time you hold a gun, whether it’s at the shooting range, in the field, or as part of your job. There’s no mystery surrounding why shooting glasses are a critical accessory – your eyes are precious, and you need to protect them. Yet, there can be some mystery around the many lens color options you have to choose from for your shooting safety glasses.
Different safety glasses lens colors enhance your vision in various lighting conditions, helping you see with more clarity and accuracy – two characteristics that every shooter needs. Let’s break down your shooting glasses lens color options:
Yellow/Orange Shooting Glasses: Yellow and orange tinted safety glasses, tend to block out “blue light”, such as light on a cloudy day, but bring out the orange color of a practice target. These colors tend to create a more detailed line of vision, helping you to better perceive depth, and thus improve accuracy.
Amber Shooting Glasses: Amber lenses, are a very popular lens color, and they work best in low light, cloudy days. The amber tint creates exceptional contrast between colors, helping the orange of the target stand out to you, even on those dreary days.
Purple Shooting Glasses: If you’re at a shooting range with a backdrop of beautiful trees around you, you’ll want the help of a purple safety glass tint. This color helps improve contrast, particularly against greens (trees/grass) and oranges (the target), keeping your eyes focused on the target, and only the target.
Brown Shooting Glasses: Many hunters and shooters prefer brown lenses, as they call attention to orange targets. They work best in fields or other open areas, and particularly in bright sunlight.
