Posted 27 August 2017 - 09:00 AM

Off to my optometrist tomorrow for a very exciting test. I expect that after wearing glasses for more than 40 years I will not require them.

Quite a normal progression for crap long sight in 20's to be normal in 60's. I will need some reading glasses but not even for television.

So with sunny days almost upon us what sunnies should I buy.

A quick golf sunglasses Google suggests Oakley EV Zero Path Prizm. But it seems they're not stocked in Oakley stores in Australia.

Eye protection is top of my list and then contrast/clarity.

What brands/models should I try ?

hey Mouldy. I'm doing some work with REVO at moment and been wearing my first pair the past few weeks. I did wear Oakley as well Maui Jims over the year. REVO has a golf line as well other outdoor sports. They stock out of Perth. Have a look and let me know what you think

I am pretty sure you can Dew Yeats through eBay now at a good price. They are probably too flashy for you though Moulds
