I'm  not talking about in the air. There used to be a brand that advertised " You can see the ball better on the ground, or in the rough".
Was this just a bunch of hype?
Let me know from your personal experiences.
Thanks!

I am using Oakley golf lenses with Volvik balls. To me, the ball glows. I love it. I am seeing the ball at impact for the first time in my 30 years of golf.

I have a set of senses from Oakley that really help when its sunny.  It is a somewhat pinkish tint, can remember the name, but a Google search will help and specifically name the lenses.  I think one was G30 lens.

I have the oakley prizm golf lenses.  Excellent when it's a bit overcast, but too bright on sunny days.

agree...I had my  prescription loaded in some Oakley Prizm golf glasses.  I love them in a little overcast but for some reason I struggle with them in 100% sun.  Lucky for me I live in the Seattle/Tacoma area.  Lots of overcast days in the spring/summer...:)

My in-laws did the same for me. They were also blue. IMO they looked a little dorky, so I never used them.

They are called visiball glasses.  If you wear crocs, you will love them.

Another vote for Oakleys with Prizm Golf. Perfect for mild sun, overcast, twilight time. If you play in bright sun, they are still good, but the baseball lens is better for full bright sun with no clouds.

There's an inherent problem with golf glasses...you have two distinctly different things you want glasses to do.

"I want to find the ball on the ground" = Wear a green tint lens, it will reduce the contrast in anything green so it blends together, making every other color stand out.

AND

"I want to see the fine detail and contours of the grass/greens" = Wear a red tinted to increase the contrast in anything green so it stands out and and minimize other colors.

I go with the red option.

Thanks for all of the great answers.
There is a golf shop the next town over  that has a lot of golf glasses there.
I'll  go Saturday and see what he has.
They will let me go out to the range and try them out.

I just ordered a pair of Electric Knoxville S with rose tinted lenses.  They are supposed to help enhance color and depth perception.  Whether they do or not is yet to be seen.  I like how they look regardless and they are supposed to be lightweight and have rubber on the nose and ears so they won't slip off while playing.
