Yellow sunglasses in different forms

The summer weather makes the use of sunglasses a necessity for lots of people around the world. It is interesting but reasonable to group all sunglass users on this planet into two groups: those function-oriented and the others fashion-oriented. For the first group of wearers, it is fortunate that current lens technologies have make it easy for sunwear manufacturers to incorporate 100% UV protection in their products. For the second group, things sound a little difficult. This saying is based on the fact that the demands in fashion world are always endless. Nevertheless, it is undeniable that the current sunwear market can satisfy most of the customers in terms of fashion enjoyment. Yellow sunglasses are one of the fashionable products in recent years. This color can be commonly seen in many products in other industries. And its application in the eyewear industry is quite innovative.

Both sunglass frames and sunglass lenses can be tinted. And yellow sunwear as a wide concept can be referred to different types of products. Painting the frame into yellow brings yellow frame sunglasses, and tinting the lenses into yellow gets the design of yellow lens sunglasses. Both of these two major forms can be named yellow sunglasses, for their similar effects. Yellow-framed sunglasses usually take use of lenses in other colors, such as brown and gray. The appearance brought by yellow frame sunwear is quite attractive. And even Bill Clinton can not resist them. The frame can be cat-eye, but-eye or oversized.

The color yellow applied to sunglass frames means only fashion enhancement. But it has an additional functional benefit when applied to sunglass lenses. As the other type of yellow sunglasses, yellow lens sunshades have been widely recommended by the media and eye doctors. The degree of UV protection offered by sunglasses is determined mainly by the lens material used. The lens darkness or color is not the decisive factor of UV protection. However, different lens tints have been traditionally used in sunglasses, with an expectation to achieve additional advantages. In particular, sports sunglasses with yellow lenses can heighten contrast in overcast, hazy, low-light conditions during outdoor or indoor sports. What’s more, they can offer sharper focus by filtering blue light.
