Why prescription sunglasses are essential

Any golfer with prescription glasses has been there. Should I get prescription sunglasses or continue to fight the battle against the sun when I am out on the links? Most rounds of golf take between three and a half and five hours. During the spring, summer and fall months the majority of the time on the golf course is spent with the sun beating down on the tee boxes, fairways and greens. This can be brutal for anyone that has sensitive eyes. 

At certain times of the day there always seems to be that one par 3 that looks directly into the sun. If you are wearing prescription eyeglasses it can make the sun even more powerful. Most people would simply look away as they carried on. You cannot do this because you are trying to hit a golf shot into the green. After addressing the ball and swinging you look up and the sun is staring you straight in the face. You do your best to shield out the sun but it does no good as your ball flight is right in the path of the sun. 

Most of the time you have no idea where the ball went or your eyes are extremely photophobic. Rather than having to fight this battle on the golf course it is strongly suggested that instead order prescription sunglasses. They will be well worth the investment as you will not only enjoy your golf game more, you will save your eyes. We all know that staring into the sun is extremely dangerous so why not protect our precious eyes as much as possible.

There are a multitude of prescription sunglasses available for those that do not have perfect vision. Instead of hurting your eyes every time you try to look up at your ball flight it is suggested that you invest in prescription sunglasses today. While having prescription sunglasses during the summer months is desirable remember that the spring and fall months will have many days in which the sun is extremely bright on the horizon.
