Sunglass Tints

Tint #1 – Amber

Rodeo Drive Sunglasses

The brownish-red tint of the amber lenses enhances contrast, allowing you to make out shapes more clearly because it blocks out the color spectrum’s hazy end. This provides the wearer with a brighter view on cloudy or foggy days. This tint is perfect for driving. Frame shown: Rodeo Drive

Vintage Reading Sunglasses

A brown tint option enhances the light quality of your surroundings, while giving you added depth perception in low light surroundings.
