Well quick question. Lets say I have a yellow/orange shiny lens, that means that they will be more effective when sunny correct?

Gray shiny lenses would be better for darker days?

Mirror lenses are specifically to reduce glare on shiny (EDIT: Shiny? How about bright) days.

In general:

Gold filters out blue light and is suitable for a wide range of light conditions.

Black Iridium has a mirrored coating that helps reduce glare, and won't distort colors. Best for bright, sunny days.

Bronze offers good protection for bright, clear days.

Silver/green is a good general-purpose lens because it enhances contrast in diffused light.

Rose is best suited for low-light conditions.

Purple is good in low-light conditions, such as overcast and snowy days, because it brings out shadows and contours in flat light.

Clear is best suited for skiing or riding at night or on cloudy days.
