I love them. Only sunglasses I have ever been able to play in. I got the lighter colored ones so if it does get a little cloudy I don’t have to take them off

I’ve read some stuff about them not being dark enough.
I play without shades plenty so I feel like it’s gotta be dark enough.
Also I lose the ball a lot in the sky.

Wear them every round.

Have one set with prism dark and one set prism dark. Interchange them depending on how bright it is outside

Just got some prism black lenses on radars (which by the way, the frame, I swear are flimsier and cheaper than the pair I had from the 2010s). Maybe they just try and make them lighter these days?

Still like them. Would love to get some polarized gols lenses for them.

Good glasses but don’t leave them in a hot car for an extended time. The prizsm coating will shrink and start to wrinkle.

So my 52 year old eyes has trouble seeing the ball especially when hitting driver. I kind of lose it in the air. Any suggestions on lens color/type?

This. They are still very good lenses. I wouldn’t say they’re not dark enough but they don’t protect from the sun as well as the pair of Maui Jim’s I have. The prism lenses are also the only ones where notice the reflection of my eyeballs sometimes.

I have the Prism Dark glasses and I’m a fan. I wear them in bright conditions and they do well enough. I don’t like wearing anything that I’m constantly having to take off to read greens.

Been testing out friends glasses to see what fit and shade I liked. Has some pro shop credits from tournament winnings to I bought the Oakley Flaxk Jackets with Prizm lens and wore them today for the first time. One of my ski goggles have prizm lenses and they have Avery similar view. I like them a lot, didn’t really notice them on my face after a couple holes.

I’m 63 and have Prescription Oakleys with Amber lenses. They work fine for me but I still have a hard time seeing a ball coming towards me which is a problem when I marshal at the Zurich (17 green). I find the amber and rose lenses work well in most light conditions. Golf lens guide
