One tint does not fit all!
Safety Glasses come in a variety of different lens colours, which is extremely useful, because one tint certainly does not fit all. Where you work and the conditions you are faced with, will have a huge impact on the lens colour most suited to you.
From the bright and beaming sunlight, to the dark and dull workshops, to the presence of blue light, you really should take note of your surroundings, in order to select the most suitable safety glasses for you!
In this blog post, we discuss ways in which you can identify what lens colours would be of most benefit to you; and identify and explain a variety of different lens colours, while highlighting their uses and benefits within specific environments!
So, how can you decide what lens colour would be best for you?
It is worthwhile to consider the following few points, to help you better understand the environment you work, the issues you face; and the safety glasses that would provide you with the best solution.
- Firstly, Where do you work? Do you work outside regularly? Do you find that the sunlight enters your eyesight throughout the working day? Or do you complete your work indoors? Is there much light entering your work space?
- Secondly, What struggles do you encounter while working? For example, do you often find that you cannot see with great clarity due to the dim surroundings? Is there a lack of light exposure in your workspace? Or on the other hand, do you find that you are in discomfort and often distracted by the extremely bright sunlight?
- Thirdly, What time of day you complete your work? Does your timetable allow you to work in the middle of the day, when the sun is out in full force, or are you a night owl, working throughout the evening and early hours? The time of day will have a colossal impact on your need for certain lenses, so please do consider this point!
We hope that these questions can provide you with greater clarity and insight into selecting a suitable lens colour. Keep note of your answers and please do refer to them as we detail specific lens colours below!

They have a chemical coating applied to them that filters out light that would cause unwanted and uncomfortable glare.
