Shooting Glasses

    Anyone tried the Decot Hy-Wyd shooting glasses with the inverted bifocal? Since just before Shreveport last year my arms grew a little shorter and I can't focus on the front sight. Bought some new glasses with interchangeable lenses and the optical insert set for my dominant eye but they are not acceptable. Two lenses and too much curvature distorts the focus. My scores are suffering...........

    I'm not familier with that brand and style. I have been using what they call monovision, distance with my non dominate eye, sights with my dominate. When I go to the U/L gun I go back to my everyday glasses with no bi-focal. It's working so far. I don't think I could deal with bi-focals at all.

    Mike do you have their web site? It is at www.sportglasses.com

    If a pair would allow me to get a site picture with both eyes open with out tape or something else I would givwe them a try. Looks a little pricey to not know if they work.

    Mike,

    I'm right handed, left eye dominant, nearsighted and wear bifocals. I have found that I shoot best without corrective lenses because I can see the front sight best that way. I shoot with clear glass lenses, causing my pupils to contract from the brightness and increase depth of field. Targets are fuzzy, but we know where the A-ring is.

    I just talked to my local discount glasses place., I told them I wanted plain distance in my left eye(no bifocal).
    And I wanted the bifocal in my right lens on top and at the place my eye was when I shot --No problem

    I tried the no magnification approach Danny and it is an improvement over what I have now. Hope to try it at the range this weekend. Seems like I keep spending $ on glasses but am not getting the results that I'm looking for. More money for aiming fluid.

    Along a similar note, has anyone used the rudyproject models of eye protection/glasses ??

    http://www.rudyprojectusa.com

    I saw a number of people using them at the USPSA Factory match and they seemed to be solid. I use my regular glasses for GSSF but am looking for something with more protection and more comfort for USPSA/IDPA.

    thanks

    since i had lasik last year, i dont have problems that you guys are talking about. however, when i used to wear corrective lenses, the side pieces were very thin metal. so i didnt notice wearing headphones over them. now that i dont need corrective lenses, i wear protective eyewear. the problem is, putting headphones over the earpieces gives me a headache (by pushing the side piece into my temple). i cant find any protective eyewear that has thin side pieces....anyone know of any? or have any other ideas?

    thanks

    A few of the locals are using the Rudy's. I've been using the Bolle' with the interchangeable tinted lenses and the optical inserts. Pretty good for sporting clays and being able to change tints to the background and sunlight. My two favorites are the light brown/amber and the vermillion. A reasonable value for the price.

    I made it out to the range this a.m. and tried the plain glasses. Like Danny indicated, I could focus on the front sight with everything else being out of focus. By changing lense colors I was able to improve the contrast between the target and background. Hope to shoot for score soon to seen how this works out.

    I use Rudy's, they are great. They also have a full time shooting sports representative which is cool of them. Contact me if you want his name to buy some from.

    Browning, Zeiss ($$$$$), Bushnell, Dillon and Tasco all offer shooting glasses in metal aviator style frames.

    I'm using polarized yellow driving/shooting glasses from www.polarizedoptics.com
