Golf: Sports Shades

in , Best inventions 2005

These amber-tinted MaxSight contact lenses from Nike filter out blue light to reduce glare and improve the visibility of baseballs, tennis balls and other moving targets. A gray-green version gives golfers an edge by enhancing the dips and curves of a distant putting green. Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts credits his MaxSights with boosting his batting average last season; Michelle Wie wore them during her professional debut. The lenses, like those in any decent pair of sunglasses, also filter out ultraviolet rays. [1]

I think I like these over the golf glasses (e.g., nice pair of Oakley or Bolle ) although I would prefer the amber tint over gray-green. I wonder if you can get prescription versions too?
