GOLF - the beautiful game!

 

Golf specific tints:

A golfer’s peripheral vision is extremely important when you are lining up to take a swing you need to be able to focus on the ball at your feet and at the same time see where you want the ball to go in the distance.

In varifocal’s we can custom design the lens to ensure you experience the perfect game, the three vision zones are specifically tailored to the needs of golfers to maximise your viewing of the green in the distance, the ball at your feet and your scorecard in hand. We can provide sharp focus without distortion in these 3 crucial areas. The stable mid range zone will ensure the ball on the ground can be seen clearly so you can drive and putt accurately.
