    If you have a Fastenal store in your area, they've got a good selection of safety glasses. Are your shooting muffs pinching the earpieces against your temples? Maybe you need different muffs.

    Oakley has saved my left eye so they get my vote. The new M frames are very comfortable. Yeah, they cost a few bucks but what are your eyes worth?

    I have and use a set of clear Uvex Genesis that have flat temples and allow the muffs to seal better than my Oakleys, which mainly matters at the indoor range to me. Friesepferd, I just saw that type and several others at the local Fastenal store for less than what I paid for them in the gun store, as ghost tracker suggested.
    I love my Oakleys, but I want the newer type with the flat temples (made to wear under muffs or a helmet).

    Go to your local lenscrafters or something, you can get ANSI compliant safety glasses made out of any pair of frames in the stor- just get them with no vision correction. They have varying sizes of lenses, and many can be ordered with side shields.

    "real" glasses will be about 1000x more comfy than $4 glasses.

    I have RX Oakleys. I think the ESS ICE Tactical Kit is a good investment. I think Revision and Wiley X make a similar setup.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Oakley Half-Jackets for me. Easily changeable lenses. I have no problem with my muffs, but they have really cushy pads. The Oakleys are great on my motorcycle too.

    I still need to invest in prescription shooter's glasses; my glasses pass for "protection" by range standards but definitely not by my own. Does Oakley or someone like them make prescription glasses if I get the information from an eye-doctor?

    I wear the Wiley-X (XL-1) with prescription lenses and the auto light adjusting tent. (The removable head strap makes them a true goggle perfect for contact sports and river rafting/float trips)

    I also have a pair of non prescription XL-1 with the interchangeable lenses. (clear and smoke green)

    They are perfect for all sports activities. I don't find them to be uncomfortable with shooting muffs for the amount of time that I wear them with muffs.

    My next pair will be the new generation XL-1 with prescription lenses in the smoke green. (the smoke green are noticeably darker than the auto adjusting lenses and the new generation has removable foam gaskets around the eyes for more ventilation if needed. The old version that I have are non-removable gaskets which are glued to the frame)

    Of course there's always Lasik surgery and then I don't have to worry about Rx glasses anymore! Hmmmmmm.... Maybe a couple more million Lasik procedures under their belt and it might be perfected enough for me to consider.

    Wiley X's and ESS's tend to be pretty decent, although the Wiley's fog up less, that isn't too much of an issue for normal range shooting since neither should fog their.

    Oakley's are awesome, but pricey.
