Scheyden Eyewear, known as the finest eyewear in general aviation, is carrying its quality, comfort and function into the golf industry with its latest product release. The ‘Confidence in Action,’ or the ‘CIA,’ golf specific sunglasses are expected to officially launch this month.
Scheyden, a supplier to the United States Air Force Thunderbird Team, focuses on activities that require the highest quality in terms of comfort, function and lens clarity. A complete round of golf can be very similar to a pilot flying a 4 or 5 hour mission. Fatigue is always a factor during a long day of intense focus and concentration. Scheyden has brought to the forefront a “golf specific” frame and lens combination with a level of quality that has not yet been seen in the golf industry.
Jeff Herold, pilot, golfer and CEO of West Coast Trends, Inc. explains, “Our goal here at Scheyden Eyewear is not to simply impress those who regularly wear sunglasses on the golf course, but furthermore, to impress those that have never been able to wear sunglasses during a round of golf. If you take note of the PGA TOUR, more than half of the players never wear sunglasses, primarily because they believe it somehow hinders their game. If we can bring to market a product that will not only protect a player’s eyes, but actually enhance their ability to see and play with confidence, then we have hit a hole in one.”
The golf-specific ‘CIAs’ is handmade in Japan and features a feather-light, incredibly strong, titanium frame with a high definition, dye infused, LT33 polymer lens. The lens is a decentered eight base, 33% Light Transmission wrap. This lens actually appears to brighten and sharpen tour vision on the golf course yet still provides 100% UVA and UVB 400nm protection. The LT33 lenses are top drill mounted eliminating 60% of the lower frame and allowing an unobstructed view while addressing the ball. The frame also includes adjustable oversized, soft, tacky, silicone nose pads that will keep the frames comfortably in place during the most powerful golf swings. Herold adds, when blending dyes to colorize the tint on any lens one must consider the reaction that the ‘visible light spectrum’ has on the human brain. After several attempts in blending the dyes, we feel we have found the perfect sweet spot within the visible light spectrum that will create the perfect contrast and color for the game of golf. This ‘sweet spot’ will allow the player to put Scheyden CIAs on and keep them on during the entire round, including while hiiting shots in the shade of a tree. A “sensitive eyes” slightly darker lens within the same light spectrum is on the horizon.”
