After years of research, the golf lenses were designed after gaining a better understanding of what we see in the environment in regards to different sports.

This was achieved by understanding how the eye works and tailoring light to increase contrast for dominant colours.

The difference between good light and bad light are enhanced with the use of Oakley Prizm Lenses.

Prizm lenses are designed to enhance contrast and provide golfers with better visibility on the course. This can help golfers spot transitions between fairway, rough, and hazards more effectively, allowing for improved shot selection and course management.

The Oakley Prizm lens helps see the difference between fairway, fringe, and rough. When a golfer can see the changes in bumps and textures it makes it a lot easier to read greens.

The contrast between the healthy grass and unhealthy grass is also enhanced by the use of prism lenses. This will help golfers see changes in grass conditions and also focus on the white golf ball a lot better.

The Prizm lens technology incorporates features that minimize glare, allowing golfers to see clearly even in bright and sunny conditions. Reduced glare can help golfers track the ball in flight, read the contours of the green, and better judge distances.

  1. Hi Chris,

    My husband has a pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses, but he wants to buy another pair in case he loses the Costa Del Mar. The Oakley seems to be of high quality, and the fact that the lenses are made of polycarbonate is excellent because glasses are much heavier, thus become uncomfortable to wear at the end of the day.
    I will show this article to my husband so he can check this further.
    Thank you for this excellent post!

    • Hi Daniella

      I appreciate your comments.

      The Oakley Sunglasses with Prizm Lens Technology certainly help make a specific sport easier visually. The lightweight and durable O-Matter frame make these a fantastic choice for both sports and everyday use.

      Thanks for stopping by.



  2. Hi Chris.
    As a keen golfer and an author of three short game instruction books (kindle version) the Oakley golf sunglasses are of interest to me.
    I especially liked the comment that they make green reading easier – this is certainly an area where the amateur golfer struggles (but fails to proactive enough) so any aid in this area must be welcome.
    I’m going to get me some – and try them out.
    I’m pleased I found your website, very useful to have and bookmarked for further reading.
    Best regards
    PS those Amazon kindle books can be found by doing a search on Lawrence Bredenkamp in Amazon. There are 3 that your readers may be interested in

    • Hi John

      I appreciate your comments.

      The Oakley Prizm Golf lenses are not polarized. Polarization can affect depth perception by eliminating all glare. Depth perception is needed to perceive the undulations out on the golf course. Polarized lenses are ideal for water sports or driving. They can still be used for golf, but the Oakley Prizm Golf Lenses are the best for vision out on the golf course. You will see a significant difference if your try them on and look at some green grass. It is a lot easier to spot the different colors that may be that of a green surface.
