    Prescription shooting glasses

    My wife has the shooting bug however she wear glasses and wants a pair of prescription shooting glasses. The shooting glasses she uses now cover her framed glasses. They are uncomfortable and not very functional.

    Any suggestions?

    ps:she already talked me out of my USPc 40. If I can get her shooting the Nazi she will leave my Wilson alone.

    If you have the money, Oakley offers prescription M Frames and regular style frames; they just came out with Transition lenses too.

    Email them to see what they can do for you.

    The coolest thing about my Job is that they purchase me a pair of Safety glasses every year. Any frame I want and any particular safety lense material I want. As I wear lineless bifocal progressive lenses they end up spending a tidy sum for a pair of light Titanium frames and some sort of high tech light safety material. I use them all the time, just take the side shields off for most daily wear. I am required to read fine detail in all sorts of types of lighting so they spring for the progressives and the perscription too. As they want me to have them on at all times they justify getting me ones that they know I WILL have on at all times. I rarely need a set but every other year but they will buy me a new set when I need it. I keep two pairs in good repair. One heavier type lens material and one lighter space age stuff.

    Just had to brag on that. Makes pretty dandy shooting glasses too.

    Thanks for all the information. When we rode our bikes, she used contacts and a full face helmet but there seems to be a problem when shooting.
    I'll check out the sites.

    Some years ago, I purchased the Oakley "M" Frame and lenses with prescription inserts. Polycarb, wrap-around. Good for anything with wind, dust, flying debris ... ie, cycling, driving a convertible, racquetball, shooting, etc. Very comfortable. Looks a bit like a "bat wing" on the face, but it serves the purpose unlike anything else I have used.

    JCPenney, Sears, or other optometrist will have what you need.

    I got polycarbonate lenses that were made specific for shooting. I got to select the tint (standard shooters amber). Based on the thickness of this lens, I was limited in frame selection, but that's only because I opted for thick profile (extra strength). You can get thinner polycarbonate lenses that will fit any frame available.
