What difference do lens colors make on my pair of Taylor Morris?

All colors absorb light differently. Lens colors determine which parts of the light spectrum pass through the lens to your eye.

Gray or “smoked”lenses protect eyes from dangerous ultraviolet radiation without distorting colors. They reduce glare and absorb the same quality of light at any wavelength, which makes them good for driving, prolonged wear and general use.

Brown lenses are good for general use. Like yellow lenses, they filter out a large proportion of blue light, but they offer greater clarity and contrast, and help you maintain optimal vision even in irregular light.

Green lenses offer the highest contrast and greatest visual acuity of any tint. They also filter some blue light and reduce glare. This filter is recommended for prolonged use in extreme conditions.

Purple and rose lenses offer the best contrast for objects against a green or blue background, making them ideal for water sports.
