Bolle's latest golf-specific sunglasses

August 14, 2012

Bolle is a French company that opened for business in 1888 and added sunglasses to its line of products in 1956, but is a relative newcomer to golf-specific eyewear.

Its new Photo V3 Golf lenses marks the second generation of golf-specific sunglasses. The difference between it and the first generation is that the tint of the lenses was engineered specifically for golf and "really highlights the greens very well," company spokesman Jim Katz said, enhancing a golfer's abilitiy to see subtle their subtle contours.

Moreover the photochromic properties allow the lenses to change with the light, from bright to shady areas, to maximize visibility in any light condition.

The nine golf models range in price from $99.99 to $149.99. The Bounty Photo V3 shown above is priced at $139.99.
