If you ask any golfer to write down a list of essential requirements for the golf course, chances are that one of the items featured on that list will be sunglasses. Eye protection is incredibly important when you’re out on the course all day. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can severely damage your eyes as well as leading to macular degeneration later in life. Studies indicated that a whopping 30% of golfers aged 60 and over suffer from a light related vision impairment, which is why choosing the right pair of sunglasses is essential for those that play the game regularly.
Sunglasses are important equipment for all kinds of reasons. Not only do they protect your eyes from the sharp glare of the sun, they also protect your eyes from any debris such as particles of sand, grit or dust that may fly up from the surface of the course. Sports glasses tend to the be best option for golfers as they wrap around the face giving you maximum protection. They also tend to have a more secure fit which is essential for golfers as you don’t want your glasses to slide down your face when teeing up a shot.
Your choice of lenses is particularly important when playing golf. The color of the lenses can affect contrast and depth perception, both of which are vital on the golf course. Dark amber or brown lenses tend to be the best choices for golfers as they are suited to changeable light conditions and work well in sports where it is important to judge distances accurately. Amber and brown lenses are particularly useful for golfers as they can increase the contrast in green colors, making it easier to read the course. Rose/copper lenses are also a good option for golfers as they remove yellow and red tones from the color green which can make it easier to identify disruptions and grains of the green.
If you play golf often, then you will want a pair of sunglasses that can survive the general wear and tear associated with regular playing. Golf sunglasses should be strong and hard wearing as they need to be able to withstand heavy use and are likely to be worn in all weathers. They may also often be removed or carried in a pocket so durability is particularly important. Bamboo sunglasses are a good choice for golfers as they tend to be stronger than plastic. they are also lightweight and comfortable to wear over long periods of time.
