The biggest mistake that can be made is to think baseball glasses are chosen purely for how they look and the shade they give to your eyes.
To merely buy inexpensive, decent-looking glasses means you’re totally ignoring the safety or performance factors required of this accessory.
Things need to be considered such as materials, colors and fit.
Choosing the wrong glasses for your position on the baseball field will lead to you being distracted on the field. Which is not want you want.
When buying any equipment it should enhance and benefit your overall performance and not hinder you.
The Fitting Of Your Sunglasses
The perfect pair of baseball sunglasses will be determined by how they fit when you put them on.
What you need to ensure when buying glasses is that they don’t slide or bounce while you’re playing.
Buying baseball glasses is essential because ordinary glasses are more than likely to be unstable on your face while playing. Which is why you should avoid regular sunglasses.
Regular glasses are not designed to stay in place, which will inevitably result in them being a distraction. They also pose the problem of having ineffective protection as well.
If you have been searching for baseball sunglasses, you may have see the many interesting color lenses that are available.
It is a mistake to think these lens colors are just for fashion purposes.
Here is an explanation of the colors and how they benefit you in different shades.
Clear: these are good for night games as they provide protection without distorting visual clarity.
Grey: This will reduces overall brightness but still preserves colors, good for a somewhat sunny day.
A point to keep in mind is that it is hard to see the batter when he is in shadow, which is the effect of tints that are too dark.
Brown/Copper/Amber: These colors are very popular among baseball players. They are able to prevent blue light, which is good for brightening your vision on cloudy days, they will help you to differentiate the ball from the sky by adding contrast.
Orange: similar to yellow, this choice is good for protection while still letting in some natural brightness.
The main goal of orange lenses is too make things seem brighter on cloudy days. This makes it easy to see the ball against a grey sky.
Yellow: this lens is able to protect without darkening, the yellow lens is very good for reducing glare from overhead lights.
They are also known to reduce clarity overall too, which is unfortunate.
Green: they filter out blue tints, which reduces glare and heightens contrast slightly. This preserves the balance of colors which then reduces strain on your eyes on days that are bright.
Blue/Red: These color lenses actually are just used for looks. You should ensure that the color is on the outside of the lens and doesn’t actually tint your vision.
Mirror: Mirrored lenses again are just a fashion statement. The mirror will make no difference to your vision.
