The only problem with that is that they're probably somewhat permanent. The film just peels right off if you change your mind. Ive never heard of using window paint but that sounds pretty cool! Do you have pics?

And as you've mention the reason for yellow shooting range glasses and the like are to help improve contrast. I have a pair of yellow tinted glasses I wear during poor weather conditions and when sitting at the computer for long periods of time (it helps reduce glare even with a properly adjusted monitor).

I'm not a huge fan of a lot of Daniel Stern's stuff, but here's a write up explaining it better:

I read the same article. I know I see best in fog or blizzards with yellow, and blue lights are very bad for me. I don't do well with any light over about 5500k. Maybe it's because I grew up in an era before these high color-temp lights and my eyes were "trained" that way, I dunno...
