Andrew Coltart Rises to the Top of The Open Championship

andrew coltart

Could Andrew Coltart’s return to form at St Andrew’s yesterday have anything to do with the fact that, unlike many of his opponents, he was very sensibly wearing appropriate sunglasses? Who knows, maybe. Well, whatever it was that helped propel him to the top of the leaderboard yesterday morning after spending too long in the golfing doldrums has got to be a good thing.

Golf demands a high degree of accurate visual perception to correctly judge alignment and distances and adjust to changing weather conditions so wearing sung... read more

Bollé Success at the Winter Olympics 2010

We’re pretty big sports fans at SelectSpecs and two years ago we were glued to our TV screens as we had our most successful Summer Olympics in 100 years at Beijing.  London 2012 couldn’t come soon enough in our eyes, but in the meantime we’ve been enjoying the Winter Olympics in Vancouver just as much, even if Team GB aren’t likely to do so well in these Winter events.  I would suggest that we don’t get the snow in this country, but lately it seems the Canadians could borrow some of ours!

We’re quite looking forward to seeing what Team GB’s fi... read more

Rudy Project Rydon Sunglasses Review

Continuing on from my previous post about Sunglasses for Mountain Biking I had the opportunity to try a pair of the Rudy Project Rydon Sunglasses featuring the ImpactX Photochromic Red Lenses during a Sunday ride out at a local 20 mile (30km) route through part of the beautiful North Downs in Kent, UK.

Will Somebody Think of the Children!?

children-in-sunglasses

With all this lovely sunshine lately there has been fresh concern in the press recently about parents neglecting to protect their children’s eyesight from harmful UV Rays.  As many as three out of four parents are guilty of such disregard towards their children’s own health.

A poll of 2,000 people for the College of Optometrists revealed some interesting, if somewhat scary results: -

  • Nearly a third of parents in Britain do not buy their children sunglasses at all
  • Half of those that do buy sunglasses for their children put price before protection
  • Only a quarter buy sunglasses of a trusted brand

Exposure to UV rays from sunlight can cause irreparable damage to the retina and lens of the eye and can lead to long-term damage and conditions like cataracts and age-related macular degeneration later... read more
