Yellow tinted sunglasses are used for baseball, softball, hunting, indoor basketball, tennis, snowboarding and skiing. Yellow lenses are also used to reduce eye strain during computer work and to prevent glare during night driving.
Yellow tinted sunglasses work best when worn in hazy, low-light conditions. The color of the lens filters blue light, which provides sharper focus. It also heightens the brightness and colors of the surroundings. Yellow tinted lenses also help reduce the glare of the screen when worn while working at a computer. This type of lens is prescribed by a doctor but can also be worn by those who do not need corrective lenses. Because the color of the lens helps reduce the glare of bright lights, these lenses can be worn by those who have difficulty driving at night as well.
