REVIEW: Tifosi Optics Enliven Sunglasses

Sunglasses that Brighten Up the View
I don’t play golf in AZ without sunglasses.  They are a staple of my golfing accessories.  The combination of sun and dry air can be hard on my contact wearing eyes so I need a good pair of sunglasses for golf.  There are many different brands out there and many specific golf lenses.  The newest arrival of Tifosi Enliven Sunglasses are different than any I’ve worn before.  Instead of a rose, brown, blue or grey color, these are green colored lenses.  I was curious how these would work with all of the green shades present on the course, but I’ve been impressed with how bright these lenses make everything appear.  Rather than sunglasses making everything darker and duller, these make things appear brighter and more vibrant.
The Tifosi Optics Enliven lenses come in 6 different frame options and I went with the Seek FC frames since they are a “frameless” lens style.  I was drawn to the style since I like having as few of lines or frames to distract during a swing or a putt.  These aren’t unbreakable, they are really durable.  The Grilamid TR-90 frame, is a “homopolyamide nylon characterized by an extremely high alternative bending strength, low density, and high resistance to chemical and UV damage.”   Basically these are really strong and will resist damage, but some caution should be taken.  The glossy black frame with the dark green coated lenses look very stylish on or off the course.
Obviously the Tifosi Optic Enliven lenses are the main selling point of these sunglasses.  They are fine tuned to the wavelengths of certain colors so that greens, blues and red are actually brighter than without sunglasses.  This is a shift compared to many other lenses which seek to darken the amount of light which reaches your eyes, these seek to filter out harmful rays, yet brighten the colors which will help your golf game.
The Tifosi Optics Enliven Seek FC Sunglasses offer comfort for all day wear.  They have some adjustability to make them fit your specific facial features so that they are the most comfortable.  The nose-peice is adjustable and the ear pieces are bendable so that they sit nicely on your ears and put just enough pressure on your temples so that they don’t slip or slide during full swings or while putting.  They grip nicely, but don’t put too much pressure on your face so that they hurt over time.
The real benefit of the Tifosi Optics Enliven Seek FC Sunglasses is that they really make the ball pop on the course.  They aren’t some magical ball seeking lens that you can see golf balls under leaves, but the white ball tends to have a slightly brighter appearance.  I also really like how the contours and lines on the grass are brighter than without sunglasses.

Tifosi Optics Enliven Sunglasses are a great value and investment in eye protection.  They are one of my favorite lenses for playing golf since they really make everything brighter.  I still never have to squint or feel like they offer inferior sun protection.  I wear them both on and off the course almost everyday.    I appreciate the brightness that these sunglasses offer and love them for putting.  For the price, you will be hard pressed to find a better pair of sunglasses with such innovative lenses.
