Eyewear for golf
Many people have problems with their normal glasses when playing golf. We have the solutions for most people!
When you play golf, just like many other sports, you have high demands on the vision. Sometimes your normal glasses just aren’t enough. It can be that your eyes strain because of the bright light, or that the progressive lenses disturb the perception when you’re looking at the ball when taking your stance, or when you’re looking at the putting line.
Normal sunglasses can often be a little too dark to give the optimal contrast and comfort, especially if it's a little bit cloudy. We have several different variations of filter colors that increases the contrast. What type of filter color that is best is usually very individual and the level of darkness that is needed depends on how sensitive your eyes are. The optimal solution would be to have multiple filter solutions for different lighting conditions. Because playing golf means spending a lot of time outdoors, it is of utmost importance to protect your eyes against harmful UV light.
If you have sunglasses that are relatively curved, you get optical defects if you don’t compensate for this. This compensation ensures that the ball is where it seems to be. This applies both for sunglasses with, and without prescription.
Multifocal golf glasses
If you’re using progressive lenses every day, and think that they are bothersome when you play golf then there are many different alternatives that you can try instead. Without a reading part it will be very hard for you to read and write on a score card.
The various solutions we can make for this:
- Specially made progressive lenses – you can use a special type of progressive lens that has a wider distance- and intermediate part, and where the reading part is placed a little lower than on regular progressive lenses. With this solution you´re not as easily disturbed by the reading part in the important moments where you have to focus, e.g. when you want to aim at the ball or look at the putting line.
- Reading part placed far down – bifocal lenses with the reading part placed further down than normal. This means that it doesn’t get in the way too much in most situations but it's there when you need it.
- Reading part placed high up in the glass – bifocal lenses with the reading part placed higher up in the lens means that you will have a free field of view downwards and to the sides. To view your score card you will just have to raise it or lower your head a bit.
