Golf Specific Sunglasses: Putt Like a Pro with Oakley Prizm™ Lenses

Finally, springtime is here and the grass is looking bright green.  Rain drizzled all last week so it’s time for beautiful weather to provide great golfing conditions.  Now’s the time to prepare for your weekend golf outings by gathering every tool in the golf bag to increase your playing ability. While practice makes perfect, your eyes are your most important asset to improve your long and short game.

WHAT MAKES A GOLF SUNGLASS SPECIAL?

Standard sunglass lenses are like the volume knob on a stereo. They crank down all the wavelengths of sound all at once, with no fine tuning. A stereo equalizer lets you manipulate sound precisely, increasing or decreasing the bass and treble in exact parts of the spectrum. That’s what Prizm™ does with light, precisely tuning each part of the spectrum with specially-engineered lens tints designed for golf.

Normal sunglass lenses (high and low quality) just make everything darker. Quality branded sunglasses will increase visual contrast, but are intended for a range of activities and environments so there will always be a compromise.  They lack the fine-tuning ability to enhance specific colors you need to see well for golf.

HOW DOES OAKLEY PRIZM™ WORK?

It works by filtering out background “noise” by helping your eyes focus on specific colors you need for premium performance.  Think of it as ultra-precise color tuning.  This technology was first utilized by U.S. spy government satellites using hyperspectral imaging for extreme detail and precision viewing abilities.

3 EASY TIPS TO PLAY GOLF LIKE A PRO:

  1. Be able to identify the transitions between the fairway, fringe and rough zones
  2. Determine distance accurately
  3. Have a good eye for grass textures

KEY BENEFIT OF OAKLEY PRIZM™:

  • Increases your eyes ability to separate colors giving more depth cues to gauge distance for wedge shots
  • On the green, easily distinguish grassy conditions and grain direction.
  • Improves contrast amongst the cyans and greens of healthy grass and the yellows, oranges and reds of unhealthy grass.
  • By separating shades of green, they help you identify fairway/fringe/rough transitions.

Available in these styles in a wide variety of frame colors as well as in your eyeglass prescription.
