    Default Hello all, just joined looking for info on where to get prescription shooting glasses

    I got a script from my eye doc today for some glasses to try out for shooting since my old eyes just ain't what they used to be but I am having a very hard time finding a place to fill the prescription. I live in the communist state of NJ, In the southern part which seems to be even worse for anything gun related. What do you guys do?

    Where i went, They made my glasses at their lab. The doc prescribed glasses where the focal point started at my sight distance. I use my glasses for shooting only.

    Well, I go to Costco, I am on a fixed income so I can't afford the high end places with their own labs!

    Fixetfred, Kidding? Um, about what? Missing something here.

    I think you were asking where you can get glasses made. You have a prescription in hand but didn't know where to go.

    Anywhere and everywhere except in Jersey then its everywhere and anywhere.

    Okay I had my fun now let's get serious. Costco makes good glasses at a decent price. I've got some from there before. I got a pair of polarized Transitions that darken in the car so they weren't the cheapest. Great for driving and fishing though.

    If you want inexpensive try [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] They make decent glasses at more reasonable prices.

    Forgot to add they have a mirror finish and they look good.

    Ok, I am the brand new guy here and the last thing I want to do is get off on the wrong foot! I think we have a failure to communicate what I mean here. I do get my regular glasses at Costco and I just ordered a pair of transitions with the anti glare and all that today for 260.00. BUT, The optician told me they do NOT have safety glasses nor would they do the inserts that come in the better shooting glasses. So yes, I could get another pair of regular glasses with my shooting prescription but they would NOT be approved shooting glasses. I am thinking what I am going to do is get a pair of glasses like you suggest in sunglasses and then get the over the glasses type of shooting glasses, the problem with that idea is you can never get a good seal with the muffs that way and I cannot wear ear plugs.

    Default Greetings And Welcome To The Forum

    Safety glasses are made of polycarbonate. They may not sell safety or shooting glasses but getting polycarbonate gets you the same impact resistant properties. If they are dedicated shooting glasses you may want to get oversize (the biggest you can find for coverage) and get a yellow tint to enhance contrast.

    Try this place. They do poly carbonate and will do yellow or gray and fill the script.

    Mine are bifocal, plus I am pretty sure they need to be measured before they are fit into the frames so that everything lines up with the line of sight. I think I am just going to go with the poly glasses, I doubt they have the yellow though but I will check.
