Oakley Golf Prizm Lenses


Recommended Posts

If I didn't have the G30 Iridium lenses, I probably would have liked the Prizm lenses. As it is, I'm used to my sunglasses making everything a little darker and slightly red. With the Prizm lenses, I had to squint at times if the sunlight reflected off things and hit my eyes (still too much glare for me). I couldn't wear them out on a boat, for example.

I hear ya. There is a lot of preference involved. I have a pair of dark polarized sunglasses I wear for driving and at the lake and that. For guys who don't generally like to wear sunglasses on the golf course like myself but are trying to do so in the effort to take care of their eyes, I think the Prizm lenses are a great option. I feel for me that other glasses are much too dark, as I am used to playing without glasses. I did wear them mainly with a hat over them, so it could be very different without the hat as well.

I do have one pair of the Flak Jackets, now that I think about it… I found some more G30 Iridium Polarized for $72 and had a coupon on top of that, so I got another pair (of lenses).

I just spoke with the optometrist at the local Oakley store this morning. I need prescription sunglasses. He said that

they will not be offering prescriptions in the Prizm until this time next year.

He suggested the G30 or the VR28. He said that here in Florida the G30 are not dark enough and that the

VR28 would be a better all around choice. He suggested I look through each to make my decision.

Hmm.

These are the Prizm for my pair:

Do the Prizm lenses help you find the ball better when it's in the rough?  That's probably one of the biggest reasons why I'd consider getting them.

I think that is what I am looking for.

I got my Oakley's from Lenscrafters. They are prescription, I am not sure they can make those type of lens' for prescription or not.

I might investigate.

After getting Lasik eye surgery this winter I picked up a pair of Flak Jacket XLJ golf prism lenses for my former prescription Flak Jackets. They work very well. The only thing that bothers me is that your skin always looks sunburnt when wearing them :-P

Getting shipped a pair of Radar EV Golf Pitch w/ Prizm.

Vented... cool. We'll see if vented works.

I think it's a slightly different Radar -- I had Flack Jackets but need more coverage and less sweat and steam. lol.

Yesterday I picked up my pair of prescription Half Jacket with VR28 polorized lenses. I love them. I agreed with the optomitrist at the Oakley store that the Prizm and the G30

were too light.  I used the glasses on the way to and from work today and they have a blue blocker like effect. Everything is crisp and clear. I will test them out on the course

Monday and report back.

The Prizm sense is light, but it does a great job of contrast for golf -- doesn't take out too much, just enough.

It is golf or activity specific -- not for driving.

The Radar Pitch frame, while large, does seem to get away from your face and allow air between the lense and your face. The venting holes seem to help. I was using them in 85F and 90% humidity, sweating profusely, like taking a bath on the range today.

I work in an opticians myself and we've got the Oakley golf prizm lenses in store - I think I might pick them up at some point and write a little review on them. The tint is something I've seen before though - its a very strange experience when you try them on for the first time.

I just got these last week, great sunglasses.  Everything just seems to stand out better when you have them on.   Love them so far.

I got the prescription ones. I got to play one round with them so far and I like them a lot. They definitely improved my depth perception, which was lacking in my M-Frames. They are not as dark either and you can where them when it's overcast. I noticed Stenson was wearing them yesterday at Bay Hill and it was overcast.

Next, I will try them mountain biking. They have Mountain biking specific lenses, but I can't see how much different they could be.

They weren’t 100 per cent perfect but anything that enables me to see almost everything from my tee shots to wedge shots, help me see the ball better in flight.

I've been wearing the dark golf lenses for a couple years now.

    • I'm watching this video and he mentions "he got himself a little more out onto the front of his feet" and "he's got himself more centred in to back of his feet" in the other comparison https://youtu.be/S8dkDx8YVkI?t=242  Does that mean he puts more weight on the front of his feet than the back?   One more question: how do you create more space for the right arm during impact as mentioned here? He's more tipped over which allows this , I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8dkDx8YVkI?t=280 Would reducing how much your right forearm can rotate clockwise help with this, duringthe end of your backswing?
    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
