    I love my Oakley VR28 Black Iridium in the sunshine but they are too dark under the lights. My clear specs are a bit dazzling and I don't like transition glasses.
    The lights are close to white, not those horrid orangey sodium ones.

    The yellow night vision glasses work well.

    Doesn't look like they do that tint for prescription glasses, maybe only for snow goggles.

    Tifosi Tyrant comes in yellow prescription.
    "

    Yellow
    Flat to very low light. High contrast lens, ideal for low-light sport applications.

    If you wear them alot (ie: during the day also) your brain will eventually color correct everything pretty close. Your brain knows what the colors should be and will adjust. I use to drive a semi OTR and wore yellow driving glasses all the time (14+ hrs). My eyes took less than a week to color shift for them. White still had a slight yellow tint but nowhere near what it was initially. After your brain makes the shift it will make the shift within a few minutes when putting them on.

    I have Vigilantes but never tried under lights...they took me a while to adjust to in sunlight though vs. a fire iridium Oakley lens I had been using, but I now prefer the contrast. Based on the lighting color and intensity I could easily wear them at night.

    I used them in a covered court situation where we had variable lighting from poorly lit dark areas to bright glare from direct sunlight or reflections off vehicles where the flaps were pulled up. Definitely helped me pick the ball up a bit sooner through the dark to light to dark transitions. Not perfect, but better than nothing.
