Protecting Your Eyes While golfing

I love golf!

When I’m not in the store, or at the lake, I’m golfing.

I understand the importance of sunglasses while playing golf, and I always talk people’s ear off about how vital it is to my game, and I’ve only chased a few partners away.

Wearing sunglasses while playing golf has a number of beneficial effects that will help enhance not only performance but also comfort.

We can’t promise it’ll make you a better golfer, though. But they don’t hurt your chances.

On a sunny day the sunglasses provide invaluable protection from the sun’s UV rays helping to prevent sun damage to the eyes.

Sunglasses can also help protect against eye strain and glare from the sun and reflected off the greens, which can cause distraction and difficulty with concentration.

It’s even worse if you spend a lot of time looking at sand.

You want to invest in sunglasses that provide a comfortable and secure fit. As there is a lot of head movement during a game, it is important that the glasses will remain securely in place and not cause any discomfort to the wearer by either slipping off or causing friction on the face or nose.

On especially hot days the sweat can make the issues that poor fitting glasses provide worse.

I would encourage any golfer to invest in a pair of quality sunglasses that not only look stylish, but also provide protection from UV rays and help reduce eye strain.

If you want something with a bit more functionality, ask us about fitting your frames with some Transitions lenses as well.
