Tinted Lens is Making a Retro Comeback

A tinted lens is what’s coming to 2023. Another nod to the 1970s. Why another nod? The 1970s eyewear styles were tinted lenses, BIG frames, geometric styles and of course, the classic cat eye glasses. Now that we’ve already embraced the big frames that has covered just about half our face, it’s time to embrace something maybe a bit easier to wear…the tinted lens.

What is a Tinted Lens?

A tinted lens adds color and transparency to the eyewear lens. It allows you to protect your eyes with a variety of single color or gradient colors, blended together for a more retro look. The tinted lens usually has transparency to its look, allowing for an individuals eyes to show through the colored lens when a person is looked upon.

Colored Lenses

As we’ve discussed in a previous post on the benefits of a tinted lens, it’s important to first choose the reason for your tinted lens. Are you trying to block UV rays, are you playing a sport like skiing or sailing? The color lens is viral to knowing what color you need when used for a purpose.

However, if it’s just for fun, then any color tinted lens is fantastic! You can buy multiple pair of sunglasses to match your outfit. Our favorites include yellow, red, or a tint of green for those who enjoy environmental causes.
