The eye doctor recommended that I wear sunglasses while playing, so I just wore them all the time, even when I made a swing. I found it's harder to track the ball, but it didn't really effect my swing at all, but I think from now on, I'm going to take them off for shots so I can see the ball better. I've never noticed what other people do before, I think Duval just kept them on. I think ZJ does too. But some players take them off too? Is there a SOP (Standard Operating Procedure)?

When I wear them, I wear them from beginning to end....

Never use them, but if I did, I would keep it on the whole time.  I suppose it helps that there is always at least one caddie in our group, if not more, so me seeing where the ball went is not all that important.

I keep them on when I wear them. I know where the ball is.

I hit bad shots without them just as easily as I do with them.

On all the time. I used to take them off for shots, but I lost an expensive pair once somewhere on the course and decided it wasn't worth it. 

After about 2-3 rounds wearing them the whole time, you will get used to it and won't notice the difference.

I leave them on, personally. Make sure you use them at the range, too. 

I have struggled with depth perception on prescription sunglasses, for what it’s worth. I don’t need that much correction, so I don’t wear those when golfing. Just standard sunglasses.

Tend to leave mine on, but off (on my head) when putting. Whether it makes a difference or not, I’ve no idea.

I too leave them on, unless of course it gets cloudy or dark or something.

I leave them on all the time. However, I don't wear them for my golf game. I wear them for eye protection from the sun. Most of my practice, and playing rounds are in bright sunlight. 

High quality glasses that knock out the glare, that also help seeing the ball more clearly.  

Trying to hold off on cataract sergury as long as I can. 😎

I have the wear sunglasses outside, I have a sensitivity to sunlight and I get raging headaches if I am out in the sun too long without shades. So for that reason I hit every shot with them on. I have a pair of Oakleys with the prism golf lens. They live in my golf bag and I use them for golf only. 

My religious use of sunglasses while outside may be the reason I am pushing 50 with 20/20 vision.
