Polarized Lens Tones

(Above: Yes, we took lens sample photos on a golf course because, well, some of us enjoy golf.)
We have a few polarized lens options to choose from. Lenses, polarized or otherwise, are largely a point of personal preference and there isn’t a wrong or right answer. If you have any questions about your specific light conditions or needs, write us through our comment box or call us. As always, we’re glad to send you out some lens samples to demo and look through, but this guide should help give you an idea of the tones we’re talking about and what they’ll look like:

Polarized Grey: This looks like a grey lens. It has 80% light blockage and provides excellent blockage in bright conditions. From the outside, it’ll look like this:

Polarized Brown: The brown has the same 80% light blockage as the grey, but because of the tone it offers a higher contrast view with yellow hues mixed in. We’ve received a lot of feedback that the brown helps targets stand-out, so if you want a dark lens but prefer a little more “pop”, the brown is a good choice. From the outside, it’ll look like this:

Polarized Rose-Copper: (NOTE: This lens style is not available with the Almost Lens or lined bifocals.) The polarized Rose-Copper lens is our lightest polarized lens option, at 75% blockage, and also our most versatile. The rose hues provide sharp definition in everything from bright conditions to cloudy, overcast days and shade. From the outside, it’ll look like this:
