Golf has long had its own particular fashion and now golfers are increasingly gravitating toward golf-specific eyewear.
So why do golf lenses make a difference?
Visual definition is crucial on the course, particularly on the greens and also when course architects are trying to play tricks on your eyes with depth perception.
Most quality shades have the standard UVA/UVB protection, comfortable face grips and a stylish design. Here is a look at some of the newest lenses that offer better visual acuity on the course.

Maui Jim’s most advanced lens material features optics nearly as clear as glass with just one-third of the weight. Constructed with adjustable nose pads and rubber inserts on the inner temples, Pokowai Arch has all the comfort needed for a pleasant day of golf.
Maui Jim Blue Hawaii Kumu
Blue Hawaii offers patented PolarizedPlus2 technology, and an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin.
