Strong solar intensity, frequent changes between light and shadow, irregularities in the surface of the green, eyes tired from exposureone prolonged exposure to sunlight: the golf course presents the athlete with many challenges, which can be faced with considerable success by wearing sports sunglasses, and in case there is a need for a correctionone visual, of enveloping technical models with prescription lenses. For the perfect faceone of the game and to reach the score, your main objective. What type of glasses and lenses does a golf player use?
The choice of frame is fundamental when choosing your glasses for playing golf:
The lighter the frame, the better. There are different opinions on the structure and materials of the frame, but common idea for all are: Lightness and Comfort. Aluminium, titanium, are materials often used for creationone of golf glasses. We at DEMON we use one specialand compositionsone called TR90, where carbon fiber and nylon come together to create the perfect compositionone, 20% lighter than frames made with conventional materials, non-deformable at high and low temperatures, more resistant to impacts and mechanical tractions (safer), more comfortable.
In addition to the material, it is important to choose the type of frame, based on personal tastes. In fact, there are athletes who prefer to use glasses for playing golf with closed frames (such as the model LIGHT in the photo above), while other athletes prefer to use glasses for golf, exclusively with open frames (like the LOOK model in the photo below).
A situationone Typical of the golf course is the very strong sunlight which makes it difficult to follow the trajectory of the ball with your gaze. Traditional sunglasses are often not idonei for the practice of tennis for various factors:
Often the lenses do not perform well and tend to darken the face too muchone of the game, and also most of the time reduce the contrast.
The frame of common sunglasses is slightly curved, and allows light to filter laterally, giving that annoying sensation ofone, of not having full control of the game.
Common frames are often not equipped with non-slip technical rubbers. The glasses undergo stronger slips during rotationone of the blow.
The overall weight of non-technical glasses is greater
To cope with the light that filters from the side, the frames for our sports glasses for playing golf are curved to best protect the athlete from lateral light, without creating any distortionone with base 8 lenses.
The non-slip parts are made of soft hypoallergenic rubber, this to allow the perfect grip of the glasses, without any movement, even in the case of very sudden and intense vibrations. This technology has also been developed and adapted for glasses outside the specific field of golf, because this specialand technology significantly increases the comfort of the glasses. Maintaining lightness.
What are the main differences in lenses for playing golf?
It is important to be able to follow the ball and its trajectory after the shot. Even more important is to have the perfect facialone of the field in its entirety. And above all do not have any distortionsone of the sense of depth, to avoid hitting a shot that is too long, or too short, caused by a distortionone due to a non-id lensonea.
There are various types of lenses that can be used for golf practice:
PHOTOCHROMIC LENSES: Photochromic lenses are lenses that, when exposed to UV radiation or sunlight in general, start a reactionone reversible chemistry and darken. Once you irradiate itone of light disappears, the lenses gradually return to their initial state of transparency. They can be used for any type of conditionone atmospheric:
" SMOKE: starts from colorsone completely transparent (Category 1). Darkens until Category 2,5 is reached. It remains slightly clearer during maximum work help the eye adapt more quickly from light to shadow. This allows the athlete to avoid removing the "still dark" glasses to enter the shaded area. In zone In very dense forests the lens will be completely transparent, and will serve as protectionone from Air and projections such as: leaves and branches. This specialand slow it can be used at night as a simple protectionone from the air.
» DCHROM:Recommended for exhibitionsone very strong and long-lasting light, starts from colorsone slightly veiled at the start (Category 1) and darkens until reaching category 3 (same darkness as common sunglasses) It is particularly recommended for prolonged use without large light-dark variations, in fact use this lens in It allows you to have glasses that you never have to take off. Same conditions even without going into zone of dense bush where it can be slightly dark. We do not recommend this lens to those looking for glasses that can also be used for night games.
Below is a comparison of a lens Photochromic smoke e Photochromic DCHROM
SLOW DCHANGE: The lens package DCHANGE includes a set of 3 lenses that allow you to use the golf glasses in all conditionsone atmospheric, from very intense sun, to days with cloudy weather, to rain and matches at night or in low light. In endowmentsone in the set of interchangeable lenses we find:
» Smoke lens: Category 3, guarantees protectionone from UV rays. Reaches maximum performanceone in sunny weather and good brightness.
» Orange lens: Category 2, guarantees protectionone from UV rays. Reaches maximum performanceone in cloudy weather or low light.
» Transparent lens: Category 1, also guarantees protectionone from UV rays. Reaches maximum performanceone with rain or very low light, or for night outing.
Below is an example of lenses suppliedone (smoke mirrored, orange and transparent:
LENS DPOL: The polarized lens guarantees protectionone from UV rays, but not only: this specialIn fact, each type of lens is able to concentrate or diverge light rays and attenuate UV-A and UV-B radiation via a polarizing filter that eliminates transverse reflections. For all these characteristics it can therefore be used in golf practice as it reduces eye strain with prolonged use. It allows you to better follow the ball grazi.e. high contrast and better perceptionone of natural colors.
Below is an example of Polarized lens
CATEGORY 3 SMOKE LENS: It is the same Fumo lens as standard in the package DCHANGE. This lens is particularly recommended for use on sunny days. This type of lens is often chosen for those looking for training glasses, where they can spend a little less than more complete lens packages, but which they don't need.
