Lens Color

Tifosi offers a wide variety of lens tint options to suit every personal preference and outdoor lighting condition:

Grey/Smoke/Smoke Red/Smoke Blue/Brown lenses show the least amount of color distortion and are perfect for use in high lighting conditions.

AC (All conditions) Red lenses offer an enhanced view in cloudy or foggy weather. AC red lenses provide contrast in mid to low lighting conditions.

Yellow lenses offer an extremely bright view in overcast or rainy conditions.

Clear lenses provide the same amount of UVA and UVB protection as tinted lenses, but enable the wearer to have protection at night, or other extremely low lighting conditions.

The GT (Golf/Tennis) lens has a greenish tint that is known for its object illumination properties. This lens enhances the wearer's ability to pick up ball in flight motion.


The EC (extreme contrast) lens is ideal for situations where high contrast is a must, such as on the golf course or picking up the lines of a single track. This purple lens filters out the hazy blue light spectrum that is responsible for optical blurring and distortion.

Extreme Contrast

Polarized (Smoke/Brown/Open Water Green) lenses reduce almost all glare from the water and other reflective surfaces that can cause eye strain and fatigue.


Note: Many "Golf / Tennis" edition sunglasses will contain both the GT and the EC lenses. Some editions will only have one of the two. They are both useful for golf and tennis - in any case, you will receive a wonderful pair of sunglasses that will serve you well on the greens or courts. Of course, if you have any questions, or would like some help in finding the perfect pair for you, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Tifosi Optics Interchangeable sunglasses feature decentered shatterproof polycarbonate lenses to virtually eliminate distortion, give sharp peripheral vision, and offer 100% protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays, bugs, rocks, or whatever comes your way. Lens installation/removal is fast and easy.

Types of Lenses


This is the technology to choose if you enjoy spinning down the open road, jogging to your favorite beats, or flying through the shaded woods. Dial in your Tifosi Interchangeable sunglasses with Smoke or Brown when the sun is high and the sky’s deep blue, AC Red™ for sunny-to-cloudy conditions, and Clear for low-light.



Tifosi Golf sunglasses feature three lenses designed to improve your game. Our Golf/Tennis™ (GT) lens is color neutral, great for full sun, and high-contrast so you can quickly spot your ball in flight. The Extreme Contrast™ (EC) lens fiilters blue light and was designed specificallly as a green-reader. Its unique properties help you pick up subtle breaks on the green as you plan your next putt. AC Red™ is a great contrast lens for overcast conditions.



Tifosi polarized lenses are exceptional, because they are injected with polarized material and decentered for greater clarity. Polarization blocks light reflecting off the water (or any horizontal surface) to reduce glare and eye fatigue. These lenses are perfect for watersports, driving, and casual wear. Tifosi Polarized Interchangeable styles feature three lenses: a Brown or Smoke Polarized,AC Red™, and Yellow to brighten an overcast day.


FOTOTEC LENSES (Light Adjusting)

Fototec lenses with variable tint technology adjust rapidly to changing light conditions for superior clarity and protection. In bright sun, microscopic photochromic particles embedded in the lens react to UV rays darkening the optics so you'll never squint. Then with cloud cover, the particles return to their previous state letting through more light.
