What Color Lens Is Best for Golf?
To get the most enjoyment out of golf, the right equipment helps. Why not put the same amount of thought and research into selecting the right pair of sunglasses for golf as you would with any of your other gear? With the right lens, you can decrease glare, increase color and clarity, and protect your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Just as you need more than a putter and driver in your bag of clubs, when it comes to golf sunglasses, having multiple lens color options will help you meet the unique challenges of different lighting conditions. Whether it’s a grey, overcast twilight, or a hot noonday sun beating down with no cloud cover, you can find the right lenses to help you see with vivid color and crisp sharpness.
These everyday bronze lenses are great for handling a variety of weather conditions, meaning you can see just as clearly on a bright, sunny day as you would golfing under cloud cover. The warm tint also helps to improve color contrast and depth perception, specifically against blues. This makes it easier for you to follow your ball in the sky and across the fairway.
An optimal choice for fast-moving sports, these rose-tinted lenses prevent eye strain and maximize contrast. Keep your eye muscles relaxed even after many hours on the course, and get great reads on the putting surface.
Great for overcast conditions or other low-light situations, these green-tinted lenses provide the highest amount of light transmission. Achieve extraordinary depth perception and contrast at times when other lenses might be too dark. Even in dim light, these lenses will give you an enhanced color experience.
These lenses are an excellent choice for the brightest lighting conditions. When the sun is blazing, manage bright, direct light without sacrificing vibrant color or contrast. Neutral grey lenses offer the highest amount of light reduction.
