Best Eyewear For Golf

The hardest parts of your body to heal are your eyes. And they're the easiest to injure. That's why proper eyecare cannot be overlooked. We all have different ideas of what makes a pair of sunglasses cool. We won't tell you to trash your shades because of looks. Our area of focus: the quality of lens, the way they fit, and the level of comfort. And the UVA and UVB protection is a must. Clarity, too, is imperative in golf. Oakley's Prizm lens maximizes your ability to see a range of colors and green contours. The lens improves contrast, too, so you can differentiate between kinds of shades of green. If you can see well, that's the start to great putting. Picking up on details such as whether you're putting with or against the grain is what equates to better performance. Maui Jim ensures comfort, fit and quality in its lightweight, thermoplastic frames. Available in more than 100 styles, Maui Jim's PolarizedPlus 2 technology gives the proper protection. Varying shades of lenses, from gray to bronze to green, fit different preferences. For a casual frame, we're looking for something that will perform and look good off the course, too. That's everyone's ideal.
