Every lens shade has a filter effect – and the hue does not make any difference. Most people are under the impression that yellow lenses, for instance, put them in a better mood because they brighten the appearance of things. From a purely objective standpoint, though, these glasses do not brighten anything. Shaded lenses actually reduce the overall intensity of the light no matter what shade they are. However, yellow glasses do filter a large portion of the blue in the light out, which creates the impression of improved contrast vision. However, to achieve this effect, the light conditions have to be adequate. This means that this effect will not work at dusk or in the darkness. Golfers, sports enthusiasts and target shooters frequently wear yellow lenses so that they can see contrasts in the target range more clearly under rainy or foggy conditions.
Motorists or cyclists should refrain from wearing excessively dark lenses (Category 4). Wearing them reduces the penetration of light to 3 to 8%, which could result in the late or inadequate recognition of brake lights or red traffic lights.
