Prescriptions shooting glasses

    Recommended Posts

    So I’ve now found out my eyes need some correction and particularly tracking in the centre so I require glasses with a prism prescription.  My normal glasses seem to have massively rectify the degradation in my shooting  so:

    What opticians go people recommend to have a pair of prescription shooting glasses made with tinted lenses ideally I’d prefer not to have inserts.

    Only 1 choice really, Ed Lyons off another shooting Forum. Agent for ALL of the big names in shooting glasses, but specialises in prescription options. A lot of the top shooters have used him and as such, speak very highly of him.  Not sure where he is based but a lot of people think the trip worthwhile.

    There used to be a specialist shooting opticians on Bisley camp, next door to Fultons.  Not sure if its still there, but I remember going in a few times over the years. My latest pair were from an internet site Goggles4U, simple pair of black aviators with brown non reflective lenses.  Work perfectly for me and were cheap.

    Ok so there’s the two names I expect Edd Lyons and J Steward (at Bisley a few days a month in the warmer months).  Any others, and first hand experiences ideally

    I know a couple of people who have these safety glasses with the built in lens frames - they got their own optician to provide and fit the lenses to them

    At £30 + lenses they don't break the bank 

    Thanks but don’t want inserts.

    Hi Daf i got a pair made had to travel 50 miles though from stranraer to Ayr . Went to see a guy who now works from home. He does lots of work for NHS doctors. He set me up with an amazing pair all the top quality glass . I took an orange clay with me to try the differant colours . When i put them on when its a dull cloudy day , what a differance its like the sun has come back out all all the grayness has gone.

    I got top quality frames.  hoya lens i belive , i wear vari folcal in right eye and a balanced in left , as i have very little sight , think they were around 250 to 300 . But well worth it .

    Other places seem to charge a lot more .

    If you have a prism prescription Ed Lyons is very good at finding you a pair of glasses that will work with that. You can send over a prescription and Ed will give you some options. http://www.ed-lyons.com/

    I wasted my time going elsewhere and went back to Ed.
