i'm reading the army advanced pistol book and it mentions the use of green or yellow tinted glasses for certain lighting conditions.

it doesnt go any further than that.

You can use yellows for hazy and overcast days, and smokes or greens for very bright days.

Steve has it right. Also, the yellow is used for indoor ranges. Quantrill

Yellow is supposed to improve contrast and "brighten" the scene. I wear "light gold" glasses for most all rifle and pistol shooting. I have a pair of light purple for trap and skeet, the color distortion makes the orange target stand out. I have some fairly dark brown, but seldom wear them.

The key word is "light." You should wear the lightest tint that keeps you from squinting. A constricted pupil gives you the sharpest image and the greatest depth of field, just like a camera lens.

Get UV - proof coating on any lens, clear or tint (unless the tint is so dark as to stop it.)

While we here...
I recently got a new prescription (have an astigmatism in one eye)
And the eyedoc put a slight prismatic ? in my scrip.
Got new shooting glasses and can't seem to get used to them... things just kinda "weird out" on me occasionally. BTW, also got reg. glasses with this scrip. so I wearing them a lot. ANYONE?
