We all use them and our eyes obviously need protection, but the quality of our vision is largely responsible for our accuracy, speed and success with our firearms so optical quality is VERY important , so I would like to have people give reviews of their shooting glasses. I hope each review will give an opinion on:

OPTICAL QUALITY, SAFETY LEVEL, ERGONOMICS, FOGGING, LENS COLOR, DURABILITY, RX CAPABILITIES, INTERCHANGEABLE LENS and anything else you believe relevant.

I personally do not believe price is relevant to the protection of one's eyes, so I did not include it as a criteria.

My personal experience has been that "optically" the Zeiss and Decott glasses are superior, unfortunately they only make them for shotgun sports and I had hoped to find some of equal optical quality for combat style shooting and have not been able to accomplish this. I never see much about this subject on forums and believe it to be more important and urgently neccessary to us all than most of threads I've seen. I so often see shooters using $6.99 glasses from Wal Mart and think why would you spend that much $ on that gun, scope, match grade ammo, custom sights, etc. and then utilize it all with your most important sensory instrument (your eyes) having to function through a .05 piece of plastic from Taiwan that a goldfish would refuse to look through?! I guess its supply and demand. We obviously do NOT DEMAND superior optics for our eyes and shooting ability, so no one bothers to make them. I hope to find out I am wrong, but I have yet to see anything that is remotely of the optical quality of the Zeiss Glasses that is designed for Combat Shooting!

God Bless
