    I know Revision Sawfly glasses have an attachment for prescription lenses. That gives you the option for different colored lenses with your prescription. I don't think you are going to get any more military grade than those. I recently got a pair (minus the rx carrier) and they are very comfortable and light on your face. You almost forget you have them on.

    I would not buy impact resistant or OSHA approved prescription eye-ware on-line. Almost all optometrists sell prescription safety glasses. The frames can also be safety rated if needed. You can select different frame styles. You can also have the lenses made as bi-focal. Stores like Lens Crafters sell them for about $225.00 Ask about the Feather weight type.

    Yep, even WalMart has safety approved eyeware. You should be able to find it at any optometrist. I had to buy a pair when I was doing chemistry lab coz I don't have contacts. They were actually cheaper than my normal pair, coz I didn't invest in transition lenses and all that jazz like I do for my everyday glasses.

    The first link are great, but have a disclaimer in their Rx version because of the variance in Rxes. Check the disclaimer.

    The second link are the sheild version. They meet ANSI and Mil SPEC, though I noticed that they are not on the Army's list any more (they used to be). Not sure what that's about; I've been issued ICE variants several times. You get a prescription drop in that goes behind the shield. On that page, I have the ICE-2X Naro. The good thing about them, is they are relatively cheap for ballistic eyewear, and they come with a complete clear and complete smoke set, so you have them indoor, outdoor, day and night.
    ESS is also owned by Oakley if that matters.

    I don't think these are up to your standards, but I just bought them a little while ago. They fit just perfectly over my frames, with a bit of extra space on top and on the bottom.

    It's nice to be able to wear safety glasses while shooting. For a while now I've just worn my glasses. Usually that's ok, but I'd rather not have something happen and then wreck my much more expensive eyeglasses. Plus, I've had a few cases where shell casings have come and landed right between the top of the glasses and my face. Not a huge deal, but somewhat annoying. With proper safety glasses that have side/top/bottom shields, it would just bounce off.

    They also don't look as crazy as the "ray charles" variety of over-glasses safety glasses (the REALLY big ones taht we've all seen). These look better.

    Thanks Y'all. My normal glass clinic does have safety glasses, but none rated for shooting purposes. Don't know about Wally world other than my neice just got a spare pair that cost over $400 dollars. More than her primary pair.

    Safety glasses will be rated with the frame. Shooting glasses are normally just impact resistant polycarbonate lenses. They will not stop a bullet. They won't chip from flying casings and will protect your eyes better than glass lenses. For prescription glasses, it is still best to have them made locally so try can be fitted. Check Sears too and look for sales.

    I bought the Rudy Project Shooting Glasses kit with the 5 different lenses and then got the Rx inserts for them. I like them very much.

    You can get the IMPACT lenses separately or you can get the IMPACT kit ...

    I got the regular kit and then bought one pair of the IMPACT lenses to put into my kit. I got them polarized as well. I love how versatile it all is and I essentially have six different pairs of shooting glasses.
