Sunglasses for RC FLying
I presently have a pair of prescription, bifocal, sunglasses, tinted yellow, like shooters glasses, which seen to work quite well keeping my planes in sight against varying backgrounds
Due to my having had a cataract removed and a new lens inserted, I am now about to get new glasses and new prescription sunglasses for my 83-year old eyes.
I'm wondering what experience other flyers have had using other tints or any other suggestions before I place another order for bifocal sunglasses.

That is a very complicated question to answer. I would check with your optician because different colored sunglasses filter different colors. If you get the wrong color, and your plane happens to be painted with one of the colors the sunglasses filters, you could loose orientation very easily. Some color sunglasses filter out colors at the high end of the spectrum while other colors filter out colors at the other. There are some colors that are neutral (don't filter any colors at all) and those are the ones you want. Your optician can steer you in the right direction.
