David Feaser’s passion for sunglasses is in his blood.
Feaser’s late father, George, started a sunglass company in 1988 that would serve around 250 stores along the Eastern seaboard. These days, David and his son, Nicholas, carry on the tradition.
But their unique, golf-centric PeakVision eyewear are not your father’s shades.
Seeing is believing. Put on a pair and a whole new world opens up on the course.
The Dual-Zone hybrid lens allow golfers to zero in on a booming drive or better read a testy four-footer. A 20 percent transmission gray Upper Zone deflects overhead glare and offers distance perception. The 60 percent amber Lower Zone heightens contrasts to help with green reading.
“Wait until you’re on the green, you’re not going to want to take them off,” Feaser said. “In fact, you won’t even realize you have them on.”
A resident of Myrtle Beach, S.C., the Feasers saw a clear opportunity and acquired PeakVision May 1 following litigation over licensing issues.
Founded in 2001, PeakVision is familiar to serious golfers. The JN Ones ($180) are endorsed by Jack Nicklaus.
The popular and affordable GX5 model ($120) are among about a dozen models available, offering golfers both protection and information.
“You need that information every second you’re out there,” Feaser said.
