Would you wear your dress shoes on the course?

When you purchased your conventional progressive eyeglasses, they were likely designed for performance in the office. Your office glasses are not designed for golfing any more than your dress shoes are. Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses and sunglasses are engineered specifically for golf, with golf specific focal lengths, game enhancing clarity and freedom from distortions.

Below is an explanation of the many ways that Vision Fore Golfing help you focus on your game, in contrast to the ways that your office glasses interfere with the most important aspects of your game. This should give you an idea of the improvements to expect when you leave your conventional progressive eyeglasses at the office and start using Vision Fore Golfing on the course.

Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses can be made with clear with Transitions technology or as prescription golfing sunglasses.


 1. SEEING THE BALL ON THE GROUND

Why office glasses fail:

Your office glasses are designed for you to see far away objects (distance vision) out of the top of the lens, see your computer screen through the middle of the lens (less than 36 inches away from your eyes), and read through the bottom of the lens (less than 18 inches away from your eyes).The main reason that you struggle with your office glasses is that you have no choice but to look down at the ball through the reading zone. Since the ball is significantly farther from your eyes than 18 inches, the result is reduced clarity and a skewed perception of where the ball really is. This can cause you to top the ball when you swing.

Why Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses work:

Vision Fore Golfing lenses are digitally ground and designed for you to have great distance vision out of the top of the lens, with a smooth transition to ground vision (5-6′ away from your eyes) through the bottom of the lens. This focal length allows you to see the ball clearly. When you can focus on the ball, you will hit it with more accuracy.

Clear ground vision is truly the greatest strength of Vision Fore Golfing because it applies directly to your short game. Imagine yourself being a bogey golfer. Generally, you will have 14 drives, and 76 shots that are closer to your feet. Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses allow you to see the golf ball significantly better in your short game and as we’ve all been told, improving your short game is the key to improving your game.


 2. FREEDOM FROM DISTORTION & CLEAR PERIPHERAL VISION

Why office glasses fail:

Office progressive lenses are designed to give you good vision in an area about the size of a quarter. Once your focus leaves that area, many distortions are experienced because these glasses are not designed for you to see to the outside of the lens. This reduced vision negatively affects many aspects of your game –you will break your stance trying to find the perfect area to look out of while lining up your target, and lining up wide shots will present a challenge. Even when when you look straight ahead through conventional lenses, you may experience a “swimming” effect when you move your head to take in the big picture.

Why Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses work:

Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses are designed to pull those distortions away so that you can see better through the entire lens, and golf better as a result. From the tee to the green, the clarity through Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses allows you to line up those wide shots and naturally keep your stance.


3. ACCURATELY READING THE GREEN

Why office glasses fail:

When you read the green, you’re looking for debris and irregularities –anything that might interfere with the ball making it to the hole. Office glasses are not designed for ground vision, and therefore interfere with this process, creating yet another obstacle rather than helping identify and remove them.

Why Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses work:

An accurate reading of the green is easy to achieve with Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses because they are designed to be distortion free, with the correct focal lengths for golf. Whether you stand or kneel down to read the green, you can easily see any divits and debris without feeling like your glasses are getting in the way.

 4. LINING UP SHOTS ON THE GREEN

Why office glasses fail:

Office glasses fail when you kneel down to line up your shot because you are looking at the ball through the reading power of your lens (which focuses in at 16-18 inches from your face). The ball and the ground surrounding it, being more than 18 inches away from you, will appear blurry. When you’re in this stance, you will see the ground leading to the hole through blur and distortions in your lenses. How can you line up your shot with blur and distortion in the way?

Why Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses work:

With Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses, the process of lining up your shot is supported with the correct focal length, a gradual change in focal length, freedom from distortions, and high definition vision. You can accurately see from the ball to the hole without obstructions when you line up your shot.

Note: Wearing single vision lenses or taking your glasses off is not helpful in the process of kneeling to line up your shot when you require a bifocal, because this situation demands you to see close up and far away in the same glance. Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses are superior to single vision eyeglasses in this case because they create the ability to look up close, and then far away, resulting in consistent vision from the ball to the hole.


 5. IMPROVED DISTANCE VISION

Why office glasses fail:

A major complaint of people who wear office glasses to golf is that when they drive their ball, they can’t see where it lands. Being able to find your ball is important to avoid penalty strokes, and meet time constraints at some courses. To be able to golf well at all, you have to clearly see your target in the distance. Office glasses fail at providing excellent distance vision because the power that produces close focal lengths for reading and computer bleeds into the distance vision portion of your lenses.

Why Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses work:

Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses offer excellent distance vision because they are designed to pull out distortions that bleed into the distance area of your lens. It has been proven that two different designs of lenses worn by the same person with the same prescription can have dramatically different distance vision results. After 100’s of pairs, Vision Fore Golfing has mastered this concept to give you great distance vision in addition to all of the other benefits that these specially designed eyeglasses offer.


 BONUS #1: Score card vision

Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses allow you to retain your ability to read your score card (because it is not fine print). Single vision glasses will not give you the ability to do this, which will interrupt your game by having to search for those reading glasses or ask a fellow player to borrow his eyes.

BONUS #2: Night driving vision

A spectacular side effect of the Vision Fore Golfing design is that it offers great driving vision for day or night. This is a result of Vision Fore Golfing’s superior anti-glare coatings as well as the reduced distortion and improved peripheral vision that Vision Fore Golfing is known for. Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses are also an improvement over single vision eyeglasses for driving because they give you the ability to see the dash board.

BONUS #3: Applies to other activities

Your Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses can improve your enjoyment of other activities where your office glasses interfere. This includes walking, hiking, tennis, biking, bowling, and any other activities where ground and peripheral vision are important to your performance and safety.


What are you waiting for?

Blur, disruptions, distortions, swimming, movement, and otherwise not being able to see properly breaks your concentration. Vision Fore Golfing eyeglasses are designed to eliminate all of this. They get out of your way so you can focus on your game.
