    Sunglasses are great. They shield your eyes from the sun, they help you see clearly, and they look great. Unfortunately, if you wear prescription glasses, you know how hard it can be to find a pair of sunglasses that works well for you. 

    Luckily for you, any pair of Payne Glasses can be ordered with a sunglass tint by making a few extra clicks. We’ll show you how.

    Should I get Solid tint or Gradient tint?

    First let’s talk about the types of tint we offer. 

    Solid Tinting

    Solid tinting means that the entire lens is going to be a consistent level of tint from the top of the lens to the bottom of the lens. If you’re going to be using the glasses for outdoor activities, especially fishing, snow sports, or anything else where the sun may reflect back upward from ground level, a solid tint is probably best for you. Our sunglasses are tinted at around 75%-80%.

    Gradient Tinting

    Gradient tinting means that the tinting will be darkest at the top of the lens, and will gradually move to a very light at the bottom of the lens. They generally start at 60% or darker at the top and blend to 30% or lighter at the bottom. The percentages vary depending on the height of the lens.

    Which color tint is right for me?

    Gray

    Gray tints help with color perception, and they reduce fatigue and glare. It’s the most popular tint because it provides the best defense against the sun and glare from reflections.

    Brown

    Brown tint enhances contrast. This tint will change the color of objects, but the objects may stand also out a bit more.

    Green

    Green tints are great for low-light conditions. They help to diminish glare, brighten shadows, and help improve visual sharpness. They are especially useful when playing sports.

    How Do I Order Tinted Glasses?


    Now the real heart of the issue: How do you order tinted glasses?

    The first few steps are the same as any pair of glasses on our site. First, find a frame you like. Next, enter your Prescription. The site may ask you some questions about whether you’re going to use the glasses for distance, reading, or both. The next step will be the tinting options. 
    You can choose clear, light responsive, or tinted lenses. Choose solid or gradient, choose a color, and even choose whether you’d like them to be polarized to reduce even more glare.

    Now you can finish up your order and check out. In a week or so, you’ll be walking around in your new tinted lenses.
