The most common and economical type of sunglass lens is a tinted lens. Tinted lenses are available in two version: solid and gradient. The lenses start off clear, and are dipped in a color solution to dye them. The darkness of the lens depends on how long the lens is submerged in the lens dye. Darkness of the lenses is reflected in percentages, which refers to the percentage of sunlight that is blocked by the tinted lens.
