I have rode with yellow lenses before and it's actually not bad. I'd only wear them if I was on roads with traffic though, not wide open roads with no other lights.

Yellow lens brightens the roadway esp if you are riding on a Freeway or expressway that has good road lighting overhead.

In stop and go traffic such as city streets the yellow lens sort of throws off the overhead stop light colors so GREEN lights and YELLOW light is not the right color. I do notice in the rainy season that the yellow lens sort of gives me a darker shade and that is when I switch over the clear lens.

Clear lens work great in long stretch of roadway that have less street lamps and overhead lights such as hwy 40 from Barstow to Needles Calif where the only lights you see is the cars and trucks on the roadway. Clear lens work great in rainy weather.

Hope this helps and ride safe

I've never heard of wearing yellow lenses to see better at night. I mean wouldn't clear lenses be the best to not mess up your vision? And beyond that i agree that you should be wearing a helmet.

I don't recall anyone saying anything about not wearing a helmet?

and the yellow helps with the blasting of oncoming cars headlights and easier to see down the road. The clear is no different than just wearing your visor down.

yellow lenses are commonly used because it increases contrast perception. which in low light situations seem to just all blend together with the naked eye.

It's all about light. You can have a nice set of fogs that are yellow...
But some lights create glare and the yellow lenses help,to diffuse the light so you do not see ot

I have been using different safety glasses in the past. Both yellow and clear work well depending on the conditions. I like the yellow ones when the sky is gray or the weather rainy - it makes everything kind of sunny.

However, the main issue with these is the lens plastic quality. They often tend to become scratched very quickly which ruins your vision when crossing another vehicle lights.

just make sure the polarization doesn't mess with the visor polarization. i've had some glasses that give everything an oily sheen when used with a visor
