    Check the Rudy Project or WileyX websites for local vendors, it should have optometrist that carry their products

    I just went to my eye doctor. I got WileyX frames with transition poly carbonate lenses. They are perfect for shooting sports.

    Mind if I ask how much? My dr. gave me a price of $200+. So for the meantime I took a pair of Oakleys I had and went to a Wal Mart eye center and got my prescription but in those for $60.

    I bought a pair of the ESS Ice glasses from Optics Planet. At the time they were about $60 and came with a tinted,clear and yellow lens. I added the optic insert for $20 more.

    My Eye Doc charged me fifty to put a progressive prescription with the bifocal on top for the shooting eye. He charged $50. So for about $130 I have a set of prescription shooting glasses with three lens choices. I could not find any cheaper anywhere else.

    Bolle Vigilantes w/the lens insert. Have your local eye guys make the lenses that fit the insert.
