Green Sunglasses for Men and Women


Sunglasses with green lenses have been popular for decades due to their classic look and unique optical benefits. American Optical’s green lenses date back to the invention of CalobarTM green tint in the 1930s.

Handcrafted Green Sunglasses

AO green tinted lenses first debuted in the 1930s with AO’s invention of CalobarTM green tint. By combining iron oxides, AO engineers were able to absorb both short-wavelength ultraviolet light as well as long-wavelength infrared light. The revolutionary sage green lens became regarded as an optical ideal.

All American Optical frames are handcrafted in our US factory using the finest global components, including a full suite of imported green sunglass lenses in SkymasterTM glass and AOLiteTM nylon. If you’re looking for green polarized sunglasses, you can add polarization to all styles.

Because of the optical benefits of green colored sunglass lenses, nearly all American Optical styles are offered with a green lens.

There’s a design to flatter all face shapes – green round sunglasses, green rectangle sunglasses, green cat eye sunglasses, green square sunglasses…

Why Consider AO’s Green Sunglasses?

There are several benefits of green tinted sunglasses:

  1. Enhanced Contrast: Green tint sunglasses enhance contrast, making objects appear crisper and clearer. This is useful in outdoor activities and sports like golfing or hiking, helping you differentiate between different shades of green to see finer details.
  2. Natural Color Perception: A green sunglass lens provides a more natural color perception compared to other tints. Green shades maintain the true colors of the environment; they’re a great choice for everyday use.
  3. Reduced Glare: Green color sunglasses reduce glare, especially in bright light conditions. They filter out certain wavelengths of light, reducing the intensity of reflected light and minimizing eye strain.
  4. Soothing and Relaxing: Green has a calming effect on the eyes and mind. Wearing a green sunglasses lens can create a soothing and relaxing visual experience, reducing eye fatigue and improving overall comfort.
  5. UV Protection: AO’s green lenses offer 100% UV protection to safeguard your eyes from sun damage.

These are more than accessories, they’re an essential tool to maintain your eye health.
