The first thought that most people have when it comes to eyeglasses and sports is that they don’t go together well. Eye glass lenses can be easily broken during a game, especially in contact sports. Peripheral vision, which is important in most sports, can also be hampered by wearing glasses. Golfers in particular need to have good eyesight which is why many choose to use contacts or have laser vision correcting surgery. While contacts and surgery may seem like the best ways to correct vision for golfers, there are also a few reasons why eyeglasses are a good choice.  Eye Glass Lenses Have Better Than Ever Vision Zones Golfing requires being able to see clearly at a wide range of distances. A golfer needs to be able to read their score cards, to see their flag at the tee, and to be able to see everything in between. Eyeglasses currently available for golfing now have better than ever vision zones. Prescription wrap-around lenses provide better peripheral vision, which can help a golf game. Many golfers who require bifocals find that their vision zones are limited. Transition lenses are an alternative to bifocals that can make it easier for golfers to see at close distances, intermediate distances, and far away without needing to adjust their posture.    Photochromic Lenses The amount of light on a golf course can vary greatly throughout the day. This is why photochromic lenses can be very useful. These lenses adjust from light to dark depending on the amount of UV radiation present. When it is sunny, these lenses will be dark. When it is cloudy, the lenses turn clear. Photochromic lenses are advantageous on days where the amount of light varies widely and can even give golfers an edge over other golfers who do not use these lenses. Polarized Lenses Golfers may also find that they benefit from eyeglasses with polarized lenses. Many golfers use prescription sunglasses with polarized lenses. These lenses reduce light and decrease the amount of glare. This decrease in glare is one of the main ways that polarized lenses can help improve a golf game. Golfers who golf near water may really want to consider polarized glasses. Depending on the sun angle, water can produce a distracting amount of glare that can be greatly reduced with polarized lenses. While many golfers may choose to use contacts or go with eye surgery, wearing eyeglasses can actually benefit a golfer’s game. Golfers should look for lenses that allow a large field of vision, that are comfortable to wear, and that offer other features such as...
