Shooting Glasses--

My wife and i are thinking of getting Shooting Glasses--She wants a Non Prescription pair- for trap- sp clays and hunting upland.

Me, I want prescription glasses for same plus skeet. I have a real problem hunting in gray conditions with my regular glasses -Transition-as they get too dark and I can't see well with them- Can i get clear lenses along with reg ones? Any suggestions as to brand- type- lense colors etc. Appreciated.

My eye doctor is also a shooter and he told me any polycarbonate lense will work as shooting glasses. Clear or tinted. Doesnt matter. I have two pair. One clear and one sunglasses.

Because the photo grey's don't come in polycarbonate ( that I know of anyway) you can't use them as shooting glasses. That's why I just go with the poly for all my glasses. This way they can do double duty as both shooting and regular lenses and I dont have to buy both or use the clip ons. I tried them a few years ago and found them to more of a pain than they were worth. Just my experience. Good Luck with whatever you choose !

Can't say my progressive/ Transition photo gray glasses are Poly but they are safety glasses and ok for shooting-- only thing I don't like is they get too dark on cloudy days. I don't buy anything burt safety glasses as they are way cheaper than reg esp the frames.
