Many golfers don't wear sunglasses because they believe it hinders their golf game, causing difficulties with depth perception and contrast. Having precise vision is considered more important than dealing with bright sunlight during a golfer's swing.
Yet making sure you have the right golf sunglasses will not only support the healthcare or your eyes, it can even better your performance, and have you reading the greens better, detecting contours or even making it easier to see your ball in the air and on the ground.
Getting the right pair can you have maximise visibility, improve your vision when looking up, out and down, and a pair with shields can minimise side and back glares.
And to be honest, if Tiger Woods can spot a pair then we have to think there is more to it than ‘meets the eye’!
See what we did there?!
Here’s our TOP FIVE reasons for investing in the best sunglasses for your game…
Golfers can be very prone to cancer of the eye and its surrounding area., due to the sheer amount of time spent outside and in the UV light, even under the clouds. In fact they can be the most dangerous days! Eyelids and the skin around the eyes is very sensitive to sunlight and almost 10% of skin cancers are found near the eyes.
Wearing correct sunglasses will help prevent this and protect your eyes.
Pinguecula and Pterygium are two eye conditions that are believed to be directly caused by long-term exposure to UV (ultraviolet) light from the sun, and to wind and dust particles whilst outdoors. Both conditions involve growths forming on the conjunctiva (the clear covering) of the whites of your eyes and can severely affect your vision.
Not exactly ideal for your long term golf game!
