Abstract : The effects of tinted ophthalmic media on the reaction time and recognition probability for red signal lights in daylight are examined. Neutrally tinted lenses have the least effect on signal recognition. A new method of specifying allowable coloration in tinted media for aviation use is derived and these coloration limits are supported by consideration of the recognition of near-threshold red signals.
