    For instance, does it limit your range of vision, make it harder to make line calls, etc.?

    Naaa, it's practically a necessity for me. My hair is normally longer, so I need it to keep it out of my face, but it's just become kinda habit by now.

    its harder to serve...or well changes up your normal routine. i wear a bandana instead (tried sunglasses when it got too sunny...that wasnt smart...no depth perception :>) So yes, it messes you up

    I wear a visor when the sun's out, but I **** it back as far as it will go, in an attempt to keep my vision unrestricted.

    (Interested to see if the censoring software is going to change that to "peepee it back".) :)

    Thanks!

    I ALWAYS wear hats, on and off court. I dont even notice them anymore. I feel kinda naked without them. I also wear sunglasses almost all the time outside as well. I have a tan line where my sunglasses go - white on top, tan on bottom. I think the hat reduces glare from sun and sky, almost helps me focus. No problem with serving or line calls. My sunglasses don't inhibit my depth perception either. Now only having one concact, that lacks depth perception!
