Buyers Guide: Golf Sunglasses


Golfing Sunglasses

Golf sunglasses with tinted lenses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays that can lead to serious eye damage. Wrap around frames with polarized lenses are essential in order to conquer the holes on the field. While the clubs are the most important of golfing equipment, the sunglasses come in right behind. A good reliable pair of specs with the correct lens color will help you play at your best.


The lenses

Our active eyewear specialists know exactly what tint pairs perfectly with this particular sport. The lenses eliminate glare for the best vision, and thus performance. For golf in particular, the best lenses will have polarization and anti-reflective coatings together.

Yellow lenses heighten the polarity of the colors on the golf course under low light, and overcast conditions. They filter blue light for a sharper focus, and are generally used for most outdoors and indoors sports due to that. Ultimately making these particular lenses a great choice for golfing for their amazing visual performance and clarity.

Brown and green tints heighten depth perception and contrast, the former especially against green grass and blue sky (easier to follow the ball) while the latter does a similar job with minimum color balance distortion.

The greyer tones are considered to be neutral, because they don’t distort any colors. You can’t go wrong with a grey tint as well as the photochromic lenses, which will darken automatically when, exposed to sunlight, then fade back when you return indoors.

The option of choosing interchangeable lenses is always available. This is helpful to suit different lighting conditions outdoors, and therefore enhancing your ability to ace.

All lenses are UV400 rated for best UV protection.



When picking out a frame there are a few variables to consider. With this particular sport, the sunglasses you choose should fit snugly such that it doesn’t move when the golfer swings his/her club: select frames with head straps and/or, non-slip temple pads. Our frame materials consist of polycarbonate and nylon, which are light in weight, shatter resistant and flexible, delivering style, comfort and peace-of-mind to help golfers perform to their full potential.



Prescription Vs Non-prescription

If you happen to require vision correction, whether it be myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism then you’re in the right place. Why not purchase sunglasses that help block UV rays and assist with your vision. You can bring this great accessory to the field and leave them on when you’re off the field too.

Digital HD (High Definition) designed lenses are ideal when accuracy really counts. They provide low distortion around the periphery of the lens to ensure accuracy of the shot, as well as clear vision all around.

A special note regarding Progressive lenses; these should not be used during golf since it can be difficult to correctly judge the distance of the ball and hole, especially when teeing off and also while putting, likely resulting in inaccurate shots.
