Gradient lenses are darkest at the top of the lens and progressively become lighter. Gradient, when referring to sunglass lenses, means darkening by regular degrees (where the tint deepens gradually throughout the lens.) The shift in tint protects your eyes from the sun, while allowing greater visibility at the bottom of each lens. The amount of coverage depends on the tint color and how dark the lens is tinted. These eyeglass lenses are great for driving because the upper half of the lens shields your eyes from the sun, but the lower part isn't as deeply tinted making it easier to see your dashboard.

Gradient lenses are ideal for indoor to outdoor situations, say if you go shopping in the mall or run to the supermarket for grocery shopping. You can simply utilize the lower part of the lens when you shop and the upper part when you head outside. You could also consider a gradient lens tint for hiking. While they protect your eyes from the sun filtering through the trees, they also allow you to see clearly what is at your feet, avoiding tripping over rocks.

We offer sun lenses in 3 gradient tints:
