I have Prescription glasses that I only wear at night, reading, on the computer, and driving but other then that I don't wear them, I can't wear any type of glasses when Golfing though.

No. I wear prescription glasses that have clip-ons but I don't wear them. My optometrist said I have a lot of pigment in my eyes which makes bright light more bearable. In fact, when I wear sunglasses things tend to be too dark and I feel as if I can't see as well with them on.

I feel the same way when I wear sunglasses, I can't seem to adjust to the dark and I get headaches if I wear them for any length of time as well, so I don't even bother wearing them.....

I have three pairs of Maui Jim sports. Black frame w/black lens, Brown frame with dark brown lens and Blue frame w/black lens. I'll wear the Black w/black when I'm wearing my black shoes or my black and white shoes and the Brown w/brown when I'm wearing my brown shoes or my brown and white shoes. If I'm wearing a blue shirt with the black shoes, I might wear the Blue frames w/black lens. I also keep a cheap $40 pair always in my bag in case I forget one of the others. My eyes are super sensitive to light, so I wear sunglasses quite a bit. Some days with a high, overcast layer of white clouds is worse than a bright sunny day with no clouds.

i have the oakley path sunglasses. they are perfect for golf. never slip off my face, no matter how hard i swing.

but...
i would rather wear a hat than sunglasses anyday. i've read that wearing sunglasses can actually mess with depth perception.

personal advice.... wear your sunglasses when your not hitting...

for those with eyeglasses:
try out photochromatic lenses (aka: transition lenses). when the sun hits the lenses they will get darker like sunglasses. and when indoors they go back to no dark tint. why have annoying clip ons or shell out more money for presciption sunglasses when you can have it all in one.

I used to not wear sunglasses when I played. I just felt that I could see better without them. Then i read this article about how the right pair of sunglasses can help, specifically a good pair of sunglasses with amber lenses. I decided to try it with cheap pair at Wal-Mart. I got to the first green with these and the line on the putt just stood out. I started putting the best i have ever putted. Over the winter, they got scratched pretty badly, so i had to trash them, but Wal-Mart quit making them with the amber lenses. So i had to go without. I tried to find them, but I'm a poor college student and couldn't afford $100 for sunglasses. Then i went to a golf course and happened to look over and found a whole stack of them for $20. I bought three! I really suggest at least a trial for golfers who have trouble seeing the break on putts.

I wear prescription sunglasses. They start out only slightly tinted. The brighter it gets the darker the galsses get so the day always looks pretty much the same to me on the course no matter how sunny it gets. I couldn't find my ball without glasses so I keep them on the entire round

I tend to not wear sunglasses unless needed.

If I have to squint at all or I just feel the general light level is a little too high for comfort that day I wear my Ray-Ban 8306 Carbon Lite's while playing. They're ridiculously light weight and I often forget I'm wearing them.

I swear by tifosi sunglasses.  Currently rocking the pave with with high speed red fototec lenses. They have super clear optics and the fototec lenses adjust to the light perfectly.  I have just started taking possible sun damage seriously. I know wear a bucket hat and sunglasses. They haven't affected my game at all.

Go with Ray Ban Daddy-O's Polarized. They have all different shapes for all different faces. The vision is great. I tend forget that I even have sunglasses on when I wear these. Also, after wearing a pair for four years, I never saw a scratch. When the lenses got dirty, something about them made the dirt not very visable. I replaced the sunglasses with a pair polarized Oakleys. I hate them. I feel like they don't block the sun as well. I still have to squint. The vision isn't as great. They get scratched to hell very easily, although I must say the scratches don't really impair the sight through the lense like I expected them too. I guess I should also say, the Ray Bans were a sports model, while the Oakleys I got were more for style. Here are the pictures:

Also, if you get a nice pair of sunglasses, invest 5 bucks in a pair of croakies. The only way my Ray Bans made it 4 years was because they were strapped to me when I would take them off.

Someone told me sunglasses and golf were a no-no. Is this true? I was told it messes with depth perception.

No truth to that rumor. And I believe it's more about polarized lenses than sunglasses in general.

Yea polarized can make the greens look too flat but some people dont have a problem wearing polarized while golfing. Most sunglass companies like Oakley say to stay away from them for golf. Oakley makes a golf specific lens, the G30 non polarized. Alot of pros use the G30 and there even some that wear Oakleys lens's like Positive Red iridium non polarized (rory M and Ian Poulter). I plan on picking up a pair of Oakley fast jackets for golf soon
