Here comes the science:
Copper, orange, yellow/amber and brown lens tints are helpful in low-light conditions because they make an environment appear brighter. They also enhance contrast and depth perception and are great for overcast, hazy and foggy conditions.
In addition, these lens tints block blue light. Blue light, with its shorter wavelength, scatters easier than other colors and makes focusing on objects difficult. Removing blue light improves sharpness and depth perception and reduces eye fatigue. These tints do cause some degree of color distortion, though brown/bronze lenses do so considerably less than the others.
People who drive a lot prefer brown and copper tints for increased visual clarity but also because they enhance the color red. So, since brake lights, stop lights and tail lights are all red, they’ll really stand out . The easier it is to see these important warning signals the faster reaction times become.
Baseball players, golfers, cyclists and hunters often prefer yellow and amber tints. In overcast and hazy conditions, the extra water vapor in the air increases the scattering of blue light. This decreases visual acuity and depth perception. Eyes must then work harder, which results in eye fatigue and sometimes headaches. Yellow and amber tints reduce the impact of blue light in these conditions.
Yellow tinted lenses also benefit anyone spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen. Computers, game consoles, smartphones, etc. produce a lot of blue light. Wearing yellow/amber tinted eyewear blocks that light to help reduced eye fatigue and strain
