I’m near sighted, which is great for writing golf blogs and programming code, but it is not good for golf. Without prescription glasses I can’t track the ball or see where it finished beyond around 150 yards. Lately I hit it so sideways I need prescription shades, and prescription antidepressants to make it through a golf round. Fortunately in the sunglasses department I’ve been sporting some new unbreakable prescription sunglasses from Reks Optics.
Reks frames are the bend but not break kind, which is great. Drop them. Sit on them. Bend them. No issues. Reks is so confident in their product, they offer a 24 month replacement guarantee.
Reks offers two lines of frames: Leisure and Active. The leisure line has styles which are similar to the Ray Bans Wayfarer as well as an aviator style. The sport line has “wrap around” type sports sunglasses, similar to one might find from Oakley sunglasses.
Reks lenses come in Chromalux, Lumolux, and Solux models. All Reks lenses are treated to resist dirt and are scratch resistant. Optical grade polycarbonate material in the lenses provides high quality an superior durability.
Since I have two pair of “sports” style prescription sunglasses, I decided to have some fun and go with the Leisure line for my Reks shades. I love the Wayfarer Ray Ban design, so I went with the Reks “Seafarer.” Ordering was easy. I picked out the frame style and the lens style. I went the the Reks HD Trivex polarized lenses with anti-reflective coating. Loved the look of the mirror-red. During the order I attached my RX. Within two weeks my awesome shades arrived.
A day in the life with Reks
Today I started off around 8:30am at a local golf tournament. The sun was shining and the temps around 90 degrees by the afternoon. My Reks kept the glare down while keeping the colors and details of the course up. Since my Reks are prescription, I’m able to see the ball even hundreds of yards away.
Following the tournament I spent some time at the pool with the family. Loved the feel and comfort of the Reks while basking in the sun relaxing after a tough day at the tournament. I even swim with them on sometimes. All in all today I probably had the Reks’s on for 10 hours!
Reks prescription sunglasses are stylish, fun, durable, and extremely affordable compared to other prescription sunglasses. I’m talking 1/3 to 1/2 the normal cost. If you don’t need prescription like I do, Reks models are priced between $30-$60. A very affordable proposition.
Father’s Day is coming up quickly. Dad would love some Reks sunglasses.
