There is no point looking the part on the golf course if you can’t see the ball. Thankfully, sunglasses specialists Sightdirect have a new range of lenses specifically designed for golfers that combine form and functionality. Perfect for the green, the coloured lenses are high-performance on the course and low-key in the clubhouse with styles for ladies and prescription optics. What’s more, Sightdirect is offering golf clubs 10% cash back on every purchase made by a member to help club funds.
The golf sunglasses have been hand-picked from top-end designers including Bolle and Oakley. Each sporting pair has been carefully selected and can be combined with prescription and polarized lenses for optimum levels of comfort on and off the course.
Even the occasional round of golf can play havoc on eye health if the correct sunglasses aren’t worn. It’s not enough to simply wear a fashion pair of lenses when out on the course all day as the constant changes in light from bright to shade require specialist UV protection. Photochromic lenses are the perfect solution and feature in the Sightdirect range of golf sunglasses. They change from light to dark depending on the amount of UV light they are exposed to. Eye problems caused by sun exposure are common in golfers and can lead to problems such as Cataracts in later life.
The preferred eyewear of Spanish hot shot, Sergio Garcia, the Bolle golf range from Sightdirect is designed to hug the face, guaranteeing 20/20 vision from the first putt to the last. Meanwhile, Oakley has also risen to the design challenge and created an artful eyewear range specifically suited to the rigours of a day’s golfing. Perfect for the pro and the amateur alike, the Oakley Radar Path Golf sunglasses are durable and fashioned for all day comfort with optimized peripheral view, impact resistance, glare reduction and interchangeable lenses to fine tune performance in any environment.
Designed for power performance on the course and protection and comfort when relaxing, theRudy Project Ketyum Golf is an advanced golf shade fully loaded with technological advances and performance aids. Extraordinarily lightweight, the Ketyum golf model from Rudy Project has a quick change lenses system, RP-D-Centred vision acuity, anti-slip and anti-fog safeguards and adjustable temples for a totally comfortable fit.
The Rudy Project Syluro Golf sunglasses are similarly well-equipped and can be purchased from Sightdirect with the advanced ImpactX Photochromic golf lenses. Developed in the Rudy Project lab for golf professionals, the lenses boast photochromic properties – a climate management technology that means the shades get dark from 38% to 13% light transmission in mere seconds. With unparalleled protection the intelligent lenses provide clarity across the green, there’s no reason to miss a shot due to poor visibility ever again.
