The CIA GRABBER is handmade in Japan and features a feather-light, incredibly strong, TR90 composite frame with a high definition, dye infused, LT33 or LT16 nylon polyamide lens. The lens is a decentered eight base, 33% or 16% Light Transmission wrap.

When blending dyes to colorize the tint on any lens one must consider the reaction that the ‘visible light spectrum’ has on the human brain. After several attempts in blending the dyes, we feel we have found the perfect sweet spot within the visible light spectrum that will create the perfect contrast and color for the game of golf. This sweet spot will allow the player to put the Scheyden CIA’s on and keep them on during the entire round, including while performing shots in the shade of a tree.


*LT33 Light Bronze is best:

  • If you have never worn sunglasses playing golf before.
  • If you play in continually changing light conditions such as early morning, dusk, overcast and shaded areas. 
  • This lens actually appears to brighten and sharpen your vision on the golf course yet still provides 100% UVA and UVB 400nm protection.


*LT16 Bronze is best:

  • If you are someone who consistently has been wearing sunglasses while playing golf.
  • If you encounter consistantly bright sunny conditions.
  • If your eyes have a high sensitivity to light.
  • This lens actually appears to sharpen your vision on the golf course yet still provides 100% UVA and UVB 400nm protection.

Motivated by listening to ITR with Dennis and Carl and the founder, the health benefits first and foremost - protecting my eyes and reducing stress from squinting, UV protection and wind seemed logical - particularly with a pair of glasses that are so comfortable and light - you do forget you are wearing them instantly - vision and clarity - fortunately I see pretty well for distance and these glasses do help - only 3 rounds in so far under various light conditions and I am happy with my purchase - I need 1.50 reading glasses for work and such and use sun readers while driving so they are definitely golf specific in my case - definitely satisfied with the quality, performance and price
I have been looking for a pair of sunglasses for years - mainly to try and reduce the sun damage that can harm your eyes over time, but I could never find a pair that had both great optics and comfort until now.
The clarity of the lenses is amazing and really enhances your ability to see the contours and read greens. The bonus was that they don't interfere with your sight lines and are so lightweight and comfortable you forget you are wearing them. Highly recommend them!
I just received my 2nd pair of CIA Scheyden glasses. I first heard of the product thru ITR radio. I don't usually buy products from the stations adds however, a Club Champion fitting and now Scheyden Cia glasses are the best two products I have purchased.

I have been able to play 3 rounds with the glasses and after a few minutes I don't even realize they are there. My eyes feel more rested during and after the round, I can see the contours and various shades even in low lite conditions, and the clarity and no fog lenses are awesome. I have paid MUCH more for sun glasses and these are by far the best value, no more expensive glasses for me!
I've worn the CIA Grabber glasses for several rounds and they are absolutely the best eyewear for golf. The lighter tint gives great contrast and clarity under sunny or hazy daylight. When wearing the Scheyden glasses, I kept them on throughout the round. My eyes did not get tired or fatigued as I experienced with other brands of glasses. The size of the lens also does a great job of keeping light from creeping in through the sides. They are lightweight and the adjustability of the stems allows you to conform the fit to your face.

Anyone who golfs has to try these glasses. I doubt they will go back to their old ones!
I was able to golf 9 holes today in 45 degree overcast/partly cloudy weather with my new CIA glasses. I absolutely love them! Very comfortable and really helped clarify the view of the grass.

Ended up shooting a 39 for 9 holes with an eagle (par 35)! That’s a very good score for me and the best thing: I wore the glasses the whole round.
I love the CIA Grabbers by Scheyden. Best eyewear on and off the course. So light and comfortable, with clarity of every break in the greens.
I am very satisfied Club Glove customer. We have multiple travel golf bags, rolling duffel, and Scheyden sunglasses.

The Scheyden sunglasses are AMAZING. My eye doctor wants me to were sunglasses all time. Others that I have owned, I was constantly taking on and off. The Scheyden are quite different. They are the exact opposite - “ I can’t take them off”. Every time I try to, I am forced to put them back on immediately. It takes several minutes for my eyes adjust after taking them off. I have an eye disease that makes the lights in retail stores very difficult on my eyes. The Scheyden indoors in that environment make things much easier to deal with. I have a question. I have the lighter version LT33. Do the LT16 provide the same crisp vision?

Thanks again for your great family of products!
“I tested them on the golf course. I never took them off, and honestly, I forgot I had them on.”
Have played golf for 50 years and have probably had 5 makes of sunglasses during that time on the course. The Scheyden glasses are the best for sure. Clear , good fit and the most important part , I can read greens without taking them off. Great product
I wear them everytime I play. Comfortable and clear as a bell.
