Today's shooting glasses come in many different lens colors from clear to vermillion. Below is a guide for choosing lens colors for different sky conditions, target colors and backgrounds.


Recommended Lenses for Shooting Glasses - Low Light Conditions

Clear - Best for poor lighting and shooting indoors when no contrast is needed. Also, an excellent safety lens when hand loading.

Pale Yellow - The lens has a brightening effect in low light conditions, dusk or dawn. A very light color tint allows this lens to be used indoors, outdoors, in flat light or at night.

Yellow - Great lens choice for overcast foggy days or late afternoon. Good lens for rifle or pistol shooting with black and white targets. Can be used while shooting at an indoor range.

Medium Yellow - Maximum enhancement of orange clay targets in low light conditions.


Recommended Lenses for Shooting Glasses - Average Light Conditions

Sunset Orange - Ideal for bright, hazy conditions. Slightly darker than orange, helps absorb scattered blue light and provides contrast. Also, enhances visual acuity.

Orange - Excellent all around lens for orange clay targets. Enhances the orange of any target on dull cloudy days, and at dusk or dawn.

Vermillion - Traditional choice for shooting against green backgrounds. Highlights conditions where there is a poor background. Highlights orange and dampens green. Good lens for those who see orange targets poorly.

Light Purple - This lens provides excellent contrast of orange targets against green backgrounds or against the sky. Combines grey and vermillion. It dampens the green and enhances the orange target against trees.


Recommended Lenses for Shooting Glasses - Intense Light Conditions

Deep Purple - Darker than Purple- this lens is a good choice for very bright sunlight and provides great contrast of orange targets against a deep blue sky. An excellent lens for glare reduction.

Brown - This lens reduces brightness and gives good definition of orange targets. A good all around lens for shooting orange targets on bright glaring days with open background.

Bronze - Offers high contrast for bright, glaring days with open background. Good choice for hunting in snow conditions.

Grey - Reduces light and transmits all colors at the same level. Does not enhance orange targets. Use in bright sunlight. Popular choice for rifle or pistol shooters.

I've been using glasses made by Nemisis, which I think are made by Jackson Safety. I get these from the welding supply house and have pairs in both amber lenses and polarized. My preference is for the polarized lenses and I can use those when its bright and sunny, and have also used them in the woods in dappled sunlight as well as overcast days or in the snow. For me the polarized lenses are real good all around and I have only one choice its polarized grey.

I use a light bronze and light purple. Very happy with them so far!

Will most likely invest in a clear lense in the near future!

I hope there is still interest in this subject, been awhile but here goes.
I primarily shoot trap, but have found that Randolph Engineering Rangers do an excellent job. I use there frames but since I need prescription lenses, have them made to fit the frames by Dr. Frank Rively. A former competitive trap shooter, really knows what he is talking about.
