Understanding Lens Tint Density

How you can help your patient understand what tint density they are looking for. The percentage correlates with the amount of light that the density the lens is blocking. 

Transparent Clear filter, for greatly reduced solar radiation.

Light For reduce solar radiation. Used as comfort filter and cosmetic or fashion eyewear. Can be worn inside to slightly reduce brightness

Medium Strong Universal filter general use.

Strong High Solar Radiation for general use.

Very Dark For intense solar radiation (snow, sand, mountains, water, tropical areas).

MH Optical Labs now offers some great sample kits that have been created to help you sell lens tints. Sample kits are a good selling tool and an easy way to show patients:

  • seeing the range of densities
  • allowing them to see how the tint will look with the frame
  • test to see how much light will be blocked
