You probably know that extended exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer, but did you know that it can harm the eyes? Damage ranging from temporary discomfort to cataracts and macular degeneration can occur. There are many options in protecting your eyes from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation (UV).
  • Sunglasses100% uv protecting sun lens - Polaroid for total reduction of glare, grey to keep colors more natural, brown/amber to enhance contrast.
  • Transitions - a lens that changes from light to dark.
  • Clear coatings - applied to any lens, to block 100% of uv.
  • Contact lenses - some contact lenses block uv, but they do not reduce glare or protect the eyelid or skin surrounding the eye.

Golf glasses
Need to improve your golf game? Most golfers have a pair of golf shoes, a golf glove, and clubs designed to fit their specific needs, but what about your glasses? Glasses designed specifically for golf allow you to tell subtle differences in greens and fairways, help you see the ball in flight, and most importantly not interfere with your swing. If you wear bifocals, special designs allow you to see your score card, but not be bothered by distortion when putting or driving the ball. Protection from UV and glare is important as well as proper color of your lenses. Grey/green lenses keep color perception more true. Amber lenses enhance contrast. Frames should be large enough to give you a full view of the ball when you look down.

Every golfer has different needs due to lens prescription, body height, and light sensitivity. Let us recommend what would make your golf game more enjoyable.
