Default What kind of glasses for night fishing?

I'm going to be doing some night fishing the next couple of weeks, but I refuse to fling bugs in the dark without something covering my eyes. This will be my first time doing night fishing, so what do you use? I'm not a glasses wearear, so I was thinking about yellow lensed sunglasses. Am I on the right track?

I wear glasses, so I'm covered there. But why the yellow tint? Where I night fish, it's pitch black so I'm not sure if any tinting would be necessary. I would go for a nice pair of safety glasses.

The yellow ones work good in the low light, but clear are better at night. It is a pretty good idea to wear some to. I hit myself in the eye with a clouser, and it is pure luck I still have both eyes. I don't spey cast at all without eye protection. I don't flyfish in the dark without eyewear spey casting or single hand casting.

I have a pair of Native sunglass with changeable lenses. It came with polorized copper, yellow, and clear.

I usually put on the yellow when it's starting to get dark and I'm always surprised when I get back to the car and take them off because it's usually much darker than I think it is.

Yellow seems to have a way of gathering whatever light is around and amplifying it.

I just use clear safety glasses. If I forget them, I just keep on my sunglasses since I can't see anything anyhow.

+1 for clear safety glasses when it is dark.

I've never worn any glasses when night fishing, and as of yet I haven't popped myself in the face with a zoo cougar...I might consider it if it was windy. If I start a cast that errantly I can usually tell if it is heading my way in time to duck, even in the dark just by feel. It would probably be a good idea for me to take some safety glasses along.
