Getting Prescription Golf Sunglasses

Maybe you've been wearing your everyday prescription sunglasses out on the golf field. Or maybe you haven't even been wearing your prescription at all. Should you get prescription golf sunglasses? Sunglass Rob teams up with pro golfer Brian Bobbit to discuss. Read on to learn more.


The short answer: Yes! Whether you're a golfer who wears regular sunglasses out on the green, or one whose golfing glasses are non-prescription, or even if you're like Brian and don't know you should be wearing a prescription, you should definitely consider getting a pair of prescription golf sunglasses.

A Place to Start

Brian's sunglass of choice is the limited edition Oakley/SportRx Flak 2.0 XL with PRIZM Dark Golf lenses, which you can view and shop below.

Not only do you get the same Oakley perks that so many others know and love such as a lightweight but durable O-Matter frame with Unobtanium grips and PRIZM lens technology, but this matte carbon color is exclusive to our limited edition model. The XL refers to the lens size, which allows for a wrap coverage and has cutouts to accommodate the curve of your cheeks. Best of all, this frame is Rx-able!

Brian chose to get his Rx lenses in Oakley's PRIZM Dark Golf, the tech of which involves a special dye mixed into the melted lens material to bring out the highest contrast possible. The color, meanwhile, is best suited for golfing in sunny conditions. If you anticipate a lot of cloudy weather, check out the regular PRIZM Golf lenses.
