Never used to putt with glasses on but bought a pair of the oakley prizm golf lenses and now I don't even think about it. I actually played 2 rounds without taking my glasses off to putt before I even realized I wasn't taking them off. I don't think they make it easier to read the green but they don't hurt either.

I wear the same and keep them on when putting.  I find myself squinting if I take them off.  Great lenses.

There are rounds I don't wear them at all.  But once on they stay on.

The only down fall with them is the course looks significantly more brown with them on. Often my partners will mention how good the greens look and I'll have to remove my glasses to see what they see. The Oakley's prizm lenses definitely makes the dry spots stand out.

I too like many others will take off the glasses on the putting greens. I keep them on all other times. Just seems like it is harder to see the greens with glasses on. Never had an issue of falling- just put on my hat while on the greens.

Nope !  No sunglasses while putting, or full shots.
Wear them in between, though. Keeps the dust out and block wind.

I can putt with or without sunglasses.... (2 pairs of Reks - Gray and Yellow lenses. They're awesome).... but if the light isn't bright enough, I do have trouble seeing the line with them on. All depends on the shade of the lenses. I do love the yellow lenses as well, ESPECIALLY when it's darker out.

Always leave mine on if I'm wearing them - haven't really noticed a difference on or off - however, I've been at my club for 25 years so probably don't look at putts quite as closely as I should...

Wore my Oakley Feedback with Polarised lenses yesterday, finished with 29 putts. Missed a tiddler on the 2nd but that wasn't the glasees' fault, unless they can make my right hand take over and pull the putt left.

I used to wear non-prescription glasses all the time when it was sunny.  Then my eyes god bad enough to not see where the ball went and switched to Rx lenses.  Took some getting used to but I don't have any trouble at any point in the round anymore.  Putting was the biggest issue and that was mostly from the Rx not the sunglasses.

I always took my glasses off when putting, but recently got fitted with prescription distance glass w/transition (turns dark brown).  If I take them off for putting my vision would get blurry so I just leave them on.

I usually keep them on the whole time I play unless it gets overcast, then my oakleys get put on the back of my head. Never really noticed a difference reading putts either way.
