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.

I can see the ball in the air 100x better than the naked eye (insert joke - when actually hit in the air). The bendable arm is great, like an "aha" moment. Bottoms of standard sunglasses interfere with sightlines in a setup position, and these do not! Lastly, the color and clarity with these on, put me in my own little world - now I understand why pros wear them!
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 love the CIA Grabbers. They are very comfortable, in fact I never had to adjust them during my whole round. And I saw great detail in reading my putts and assessing my lies on the course.
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.
One can play golf wearing these glasses. First time I’ve had a pair with little or no distortion. Hope you do well with this product. Certainly a positive for eye health on the golf course.
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 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 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!
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 worn all types of sunglasses on the golf course through the years. The CIAs are the most comfortable sunglasses with the best lenses I’ve ever worn. I wish I had these when I was playing on tour! All day comfort, all day eye protection and the best lenses in the business make these sunglasses AWESOME!
