Looking for new shooting glasses. I have tried haft a dozen safety/shooting glasses and so far all give me a distorted dot. Anyone use ones from Blue Press ? Oakley or Gargoyle maybe ? I think this is costing me points.

I had gone through a few pairs of glasses, including Varga Olympic style glasses, but none really worked. I had a pair made by an optometrist and that made a huge difference; the dot is as round and as clear as it can be. I asked the optometrist if I could bring the pistol with the scope to the store and he was OK with it. He, then, chose the exact correction for the scope. He, also, tinted the glasses to a color that made the red dot “pop” to a very clear red color that stands out beautifully against the black target both indoors and out.

Decot will work with your eye doctor to get the right prescription for dot sights or irons, if need be. Nice people.

Randolf is best for trap/skeet
Champion for 10 meter air
Rudy Project for Bullseye

Your mileage might vary.

I use Randolph’s.  I have lenses made with my distance prescriptions for shotgun sports and hunting, +1.50 lenses for my pistols with iron sights.

You not only need to get the correct "distance prescription", but if you've got astigmatism you need to correct for that as well.  

Do you see a distorted dot while not wearing any glasses?

Also, for safety, you want to ask for polycarbonate lenses.

I'm not sure you need to bring the pistol with scope - just the scope should be enough, if you measure  how far it needs to be in front of your eye.

I liked my old Oakleys. When they died I bought a Rudy Project set. I can't stand them. Super distorted. I emailed the company to try and get some customer service but had no luck. Expensive for the low quality.

Are those Rudy's prescription or non-prescription? Which model? I was thinking of going that route.....Rx.
Anyone try these from SSP? Maybe great for metallic sights.

Non-prescription

The lenses are very foggy. Like cheap plastic foggy. For the price I expected much better. Hopefully I just got a bad pair and others have better experience.

A long time ago I have Lazik done to correct a astigmatism. I have 20/20 at distance but need a little help with very fine print. My dot is clear with out glasses but rules state I must use then and every one I've tried give me a distortion. Thanks for all the help guys

Somebody needs to tell Decot that front "sights" are used not "sites" shown on their display at SHOT Show.

It's seen on Decot  Youtube clip ads on their web SITE! Just a little dig about one of my pet peeves.

Shooting Glasses recommendation Empty NoCry safety glasses

Post by Russ OR on Mon Jan 28, 2019 6:54 pm

New, since recent cataract surgery on both eyes, to off-the-shelf safety/shooting glasses, I've only tried one other brand which ride a little too high on my head.

My 2nd try: I LIKE these -  https://nocry.com/collections/safety-glasses/products/nocry-safety-sunglasses-with-tinted-anti-scratch-wrap-around-lenses?variant=21284919083113  just got them. 2 way adjustable fit-mine fit perfect on my XL head as delivered. - I think they'll be nice on our range where a close baffle reflects some light back into our eyes.

Raino at NoCry said they are working on a yellow/amber lense. Right now I think it's just clear and smoke.  2¢-YMMV, Russ

Purchased on Amazon-$10.49 - had free shipping/any size order thru Jan. 26? -

This.  Dr. Toler is Distinguished in both rifle and pistol.  Let me put it this way...I drive two hours each way to get regular eyeglasses from him, and have been doing so for fifteen years.  The Custom Sight Picture kit will let YOU fine-tune both lens strength and tint.

I love my Pilla glasses. They have a model with an RX insert that you can have your Opthamologist fine tune a set of lenses for. 

There's plenty of outer lenses in various tints available.

Not cheap,but super comfortable.

I had the Rangers and would never go back to them. Way too heavy.

Any vision issues should be evaluated by an optometrist IMHO.

I thought I was getting this vision thing figured out. Picked up a pair of good generic shooting glass's and the dot looked good. For the first league match I shot a 507, pretty happy with that. On the second relay for practice i used blinders on both sides. started slow fire and my vision was all out wack so I closed my left eye. The dot was totally clear, seemed to change everything. Score jumper to 535 best ever. So its a Sat. of practice to see if I can repeat these conditions. Thanks for all the advice.

I assume those generic shooting glasses were non-prescription.  If you don't need prescription glasses, and you don't have astigmatism, and the glasses are reasonably high quality, the dot should be the same with or without the glasses.  If the dot is clear and round without them, I would expect it to look just the same with them.  Since you say they're for shooting, I assume they are made from a safety material, such as polycarbonate.  In what way did your vision go "out of whack" when you put on the blinders on the sides?  I can see that removing glare, but don't understand how it would change your vision.  

Maybe I'm missing something - when I get shooting glasses for use with a red dot sight, I just ask for a "distance prescription".  I only get that for my shooting eye - the other eye could be the same, or if you want a close-up prescription.  If the other eye is annoying you, you could put on an occluder.  Did you by any chance get a "polarized" filter added on the glasses?  I always ask for an anti-scratch coating, but that's about it.  

Next time I need new lenses, I'll check out some of those sites listed up above. Thanks for posting them!

Sometimes blinders on the temples will flex the lenses causing distortion. I’ve found Belgium blinders attached to the hat avoid this
