Sunglasses after IOL surgery

I have Restor IOL lenses in both eyes after cataract surgery approximately four months ago.  I'm a golfer and would like to buy golf sunglasses because regular sunglasses aren't working well on the course.  Some golf sunglasses are polarized.  Since vision with the Restor lenses is very much affected by lighting conditions, I'm wondering if it would be better or worse with polarization.  These sunglasses are fairly expensive, so if anyone has any input on this, I'd really appreciate it.  Thank you.

Try a bigger hat with bill and NOIR or wrap around type of sunglasses that have side shields and top shields. They fit over regualr sunglasses or prescription clear glasses. They are also worn after cataract surgery. any optical usually has them for sale.

I have a Restor in my left eye and I wear amber colored Bolle polarized sunglasses for driving.  They do wrap around the eye area.
