This consultation will also include a discussion of the prescription lens options and combinations that will best suit their needs on the course. Golf Rx lenses are available in single-vision, lined-bifocal and progressive styles, with tinted, polarized and transition options. Mirrors and other lens applications are also available. Each lens is fully-custom and crafted in-house at the Sports Optical Inc. laboratory.

Frame options begin at $109 and lenses start at $209.

Golf Rx ships around the US, the UK and the world. Per request, they’re also able to visit clubs for group fittings and orders.
