Tens sunglasses have special plastic lenses that add a retro haze to everything in sight.

While standard sunglasses block out the light with cool and desaturated colors, Tens is a new sunglasses brand that uses a custom, sense heightening lens tint to brighten up the wearer's view of the world. Instead of muting colors and blocking light, Tens sunglasses “work with the warmth of the sun to lend an uplifting tint to the world beyond the lens,” according to the website.

The Tens sunglasses provide UV400 protection and blocks 100% of the harmful rays of the sun, so it still mainly works like most sunglasses and not just as a fun real-life Instagram filter. The lens is made from a CR-39 plastic polymer and is scratch-resistant, which means it can withstand regular use.
