Tinted Glasses for Light Sensitivity & Migraines
If your eyes normally hurt outdoors due to harsh sunlight and you strongly prefer to wear sunglasses at all times under the sun, you’ve likely adapted to the dark lens tints in your sunglasses.
Sunglasses protect your eyes against many dangers, including cataracts and macular degeneration, and should be worn outdoors. When you faithfully wear sunglasses each time you’re outside, the downside is that your eyes will have trouble adjusting to sunlight.
This can cause issues when you move from an outdoor to an indoor space because your eyes are used to dark tints. When you’re indoors, your eyes may still feel uncomfortable from light, but sunglass tints are too dark to see properly once inside. It can also feel embarrassing to rely on dark tints, and some people question if it’s socially ok to wear tinted glasses indoors.
This leaves many eyewear fans stuck between a rock and a hard place. Your eyes prefer lens tints, but most sunglass tints are too dark for indoor use. Moving between indoor and outdoor spaces can feel frustrating and, at times, blinding. A brightly lit indoor area might feel comfortable for your friends and family, but can leave you feeling out of place.
Rather than wearing your sunglasses indoors or switching back to your clear prescription glasses, lightly tinted glasses offer a compromise.
5 Types of Sunglass Lens Tints
When you hear about lens tints, there are a few common types of lens categories. For sunglasses, we provide the following lens tints:
- Tinted Sunglasses with light (20%), medium (50%), and dark (80%) lens tints.
- Gradient Sunglasses with lens tints between 10% and 90% in a gradient style on the lens.
- Flash Mirrored Sunglasses with a flashy outer layer on top of dark lens tints.
- Polarized Sunglasses for full spectrum, polarized protection on top of dark tints.
- Light-responsive Glasses with lenses that automatically become sunglasses when exposed to light. These are classified as either Photochromic lenses or Transitions® lenses, the most durable and highest quality light-adaptive lenses we offer.
