Less Tint, More Contrast
Brown tinted lenses offer possibly the best all-purpose everyday use when it comes to sunglasses. The main advantages of brown lenses are higher contrast, better depth perception, and a lighter tint. The brown tint blocks out more blue light, resulting in crisp, high-contrast vision in a wide variety of light conditions. For bright and sunny days, the darker tint of gray lenses do a great job of blocking a majority of the light. But on days with changing weather where gray lenses can make things a bit too dark, brown lenses are the best choice for changing light conditions.
Clouds Out Browns Out
One of the best times to pop on a pair of brown lenses are on cloudy days. Overcast skies don’t always seem like sunglasses weather, it’s as important as ever to have UV protection. It’s the same reason people get the most badly sunburned on overcast days at the beach: although the direct light isn’t shining through, the harmful UV rays are. Brown lenses offer the same protection for your eyes as darker lenses, but with less tint making it easier to see in lower light than a gray lens.
