When Nobody Yells "FORE!"


July 25, 2008 was the time. A Newport Beach golf course the place. A stray ball the enemy.

And John Lacey never saw it coming.

“It happened so fast…I was hit directly in the eye.”

In fact, the only thing he even remembers is an explosion taking place directly on his face.

“When the paramedics arrived, they were unsure of the future of my eye – whether or not I would ever see again. Luckily, I hadn’t torn the retina, even though it took a pretty blunt hit.”

“I know many athletes wear Oakley, but if they knew the story about what happened to me on the golf course that day, perhaps every golfer would be wearing them.”

“Thank you for making great eyewear that not only looks fantastic, but in my case, saved my eye from really serious damage.”
