    I'd like some recommendations on well made eye protection. Price points would be nice to know. Also: if your like me & only wear reading glasses what do you use? I sometimes wear Walmart cheaters to help align my sights. It's tough once my hands push way beyond reading distance. I'm guessing the cheaters are not providing much protection.

    Rudy Project has shooters eyewear at 30% off using promo code "USPSA" and I think they have a 40% off for certain models using "tactical" as the promo code.

    I use the RYDON array with 5 lense colors for shooting and UVEX generic wrap arounds for reloading that I get from work.

    It also helps if your optometrist is a shooter. So he or she knows what you are talking about.
    I just had a pair made the bottom is to take care of my stigmatism. And the top right lens only has a 1.25 bifocal for shooting. So the front sight is or should say was real clear. In less than a month the bifocal is no longer any good for me. My eyes keep changing after the cataract surgeries. But at least it’s for the better.

    Nothing special here. I wear regular progressive lenses all the time.

    I wear ugly over the glasses safety glasses that I get for free. Pretty much every job my father or I have had issues safety glasses. When they get scratched up, I toss them and open a new pair. You want coverage and the ugly ones have it. The more stylish ones, also free, either don't go over glasses or don't have the coverage.
