It might seem odd that I am doing an "Equipment Review" of sunglasses but for me as a PGA Teaching Professional they are an essential piece of equipment. I spend the vast majority of my day outside in all kinds of weather and protecting my eyes is very important.
Margaritaville Eyewear recently entered the sunglasses market and asked me if I would try out a pair and offer my opinion. It took me quite a while to decide whether I was interested. I am normally not interested in products that are affiliated with celebrities because who endorses or owns a product does not encourage me to buy a product, it is usually quite the opposite. One more thing I should add is that I am a skeptic by nature and seldom take a claim at face value.
But as I said, for me sunglasses are an important piece of equipment and I am constantly looking for ones which I think will be a good addition. Margaritaville sunglasses come in 8 different styles like a lot of manufacturers but in each style there are multiple color frame and lense options from which you can choose.
But the thing that struck me immediately when I put them on were the lenses. They are outstanding, very, very clear and virtually no glare. The elimination of glare is extremely important to me because even on fairly cloudy days any little glare really bothers my eyes. The glasses use what is called MPT which blocks out scattered light rays and lets in what they call "corrected light". Personally, I don't know what "corrected light" is but I really liked what a sunny day looked like through these glasses.
