Add Tint for Sunglasses!

With the bright days of summer right around the corner, did you know you can order eyeglasses online from Zenni with tinted lenses?  Virtually any glasses, even bifocal or progressive eyeglasses, can be ordered on Zenni’s website with tint, whether for fashion or sunglasses.  Full rim, half rim, even rimless frame eyeglasses can be tinted to suit your style or use, and with tint only $4.95, it’s an option not to be overlooked. 

Let’s take a look at the website and see where tint can be added to an order:

After choosing a frame to order, you’re taken to a page to specify the details of the lenses. We’ve chosen a Progressive lens (sometimes called a no-line bifocal), and decided we’d like to tint them as sunglasses.

This is a permanent tint on the lens, not to be confused with the Photochromic lens which changes shade according to the amount of sunlight present.

On a typical order page, the lens tint choices (highlighted in yellow above) are presented in a drop-down menu.  Click on the down arrow and you’re presented with a list of color options and intensities of tint to choose from.  Here we’ve chosen Grey in 80% intensity.  To see a full visual chart of the colors and intensities, roll your cursor on the blue question mark just to the right of the drop-down menu.

Each color of tint is available in three different intensities: 80%, 50% or 10%.

An 80% tint is a dark sunglass tint for bright outdoor conditions. We recommend the 80% Grey or Amber for most sunglass applications.

A 50% tint is a medium-light sunglass tint that is not too dark to make it unusable indoors, while giving some medium/light sunshade protection outdoors. For those who must move in and outdoors while keeping their glasses on, this is a good option.

A 10% tint is a very light cosmetic /fashion tint barely noticeable to the wearer, but provides a slight hint of color to people looking at the wearer- a great option to add some pizzaz to a special outfit or occasion!

Whether you’d like sunglasses for those summer days ahead, or want to create a new eyeglass fashion statement, the tint option at Zenni Optical has got you covered!
