We talk about the importance of good lighting a lot in our workshops. But what about those times when there’s a little too much light? Like the time you were out in the yard pulling weeds and the sunlight was so bright, you could barely see what you were doing.
Well, that’s when wearing color filters or tinted glasses can come in real handy. They help improve color contrast, make people and objects appear clearer, and can reduce eyestrain. Depending on your vision and what you’re trying to do, there are various color shades of tints that can be helpful. For instance, during the winter months, color tints reduce the glare that shines off the snow.
Grey tints are good for outdoor activities like fishing or nature walks. And they can be worn on both sunny and cloudy days to reduce glare and eye fatigue.
