Apparently polarized lenses make it harder to read greens because some reflections off the grass actually help assess the breaks and the polarized lenses eliminate these reflections. Makes a lot of sense to me.

Reading greens with your eyes is so 1900s, though.

I wear polarized lenses almost exclusively.

You are probably right.

I've got about 5 pair of the 'Maxx' brand golf sunglasses in my rotation. The amber lens seems to make things "pop"...They're UVA/UVB rated and don't seem to make things too dark or too bright.....And at sub $20 a pair, I can afford to keep a few pair around in case I break one.

I recently bought some amber-colored, anti-glare glasses that take out something called the "blue light". Played with them on yesterday. It was a bright sunshine Texas day. I was impressed that my vision, which is not very good and light-sensitive, was much sharper. -Marv

FWIW, I've never had any issues with polarized lenses. As @iacas pointed out, reading greens with your eyes is so last century. 

(It's also really just not that bad with polarized lenses. You can still see the same green slope. You don't all of a sudden lose that ability.)

I'm a newcomer to golf but as an Optician I do know glasses. I just got a set of Oakley Prism Golf sunglasses to try out but not sure if I'll like them since they're not polarized. 

IMO going with a polarized brown or rose lens will yield the best results for golfing. The polarization filters out the horizontal glare which gives you much clearer vision overall, and brown and rose are high contrast which allows you to better see the subtleties in terrain change.

Welcome to the forum.   Glad you found us.   Read the "How to" section and if you are so inclined, post a swing video.   You'll find lots of friendly folks here.
