How does the color of the sunglasses lens come from?

At present, the production materials of sunglasses lenses on the market are basically the same as myopia lenses. They can be divided into two categories, glass and resin. Glass lens sunglasses are mainly mixed with some metal salts with special absorption properties in the glass material. For example, the glass lens with nickel and cobalt added is purple, and the glass lens with cobalt and copper is blue. Resin lens sunglasses are mainly used the immersion dyeing method. The lens is immersed in a high-temperature dye solution.

2. Brown lens: The brown lens can filter out a large amount of blue light, which can improve visual contrast and clarity. It is better to wear under severe air pollution or foggy conditions. Generally, it can block the reflected light from a smooth and bright surface, and the wearer can still see the subtle parts. It is an ideal choice for drivers.?

5. Mercury lens: High-density mirror coating is used on the surface of the mercury lens. This lens absorbs more reflected visible light and is suitable for outdoor sportspeople.

6. Yellow lens: Strictly speaking, this type of lens is not a sunglasses lens, because it hardly reduces visible light.

8. Dark green lens: It absorbs heat and brings a cool feeling, but the light transmittance and clarity are low. It is suitable for wearing in the sun and not suitable for driving.
