Default Prescription Safety/Impact Glasses??

What brands, lenses, coatings etc do you recommend and can you get them for astigmatism also?

My eye protection (simple safety glasses from Home Depot) go right over my glasses. Why wouldn't that work for you?

One wants protection all around the top and sides to protect from casings getting behind the glasses.

I use my prescription safety glasses from work. They are impact resistant and have the side shields.

I tried it and found the view distorted. Don't know if it was just the cheap home depot lenses or the double lenses that caused the issue.

Also I'd rather not wear two pairs of glasses during IDPA or Carbine competitions.

I shoot with my Oakley sunglasses, not 100% sure but Oakley may fit presciption lenses in their frames.

Oh, competition use. I totally get you wanting the best view possible. Plus, you'll have a greater range of motion with a single set of eyes.

Yeah I think they do but not sure about Rx for the astigmatism part, some of the Rxs are limited.
