I purchased some poly-carbs for work and play.
Kinda expensive, but I can't afford the alternative.

I have astigmatism. With my shooting style, I had the bifocal area enlarged so the front sights are clear when using a rifle. In my alignment, the front sight is clear and the target is kind of blurry. I try to shoot in center of mass.
I must be doing okay as last time I was shooting an AR, it was at pieces of clay pigeon at 135 yards and hitting.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

There are so many options for coatings and stuff I was hoping to get some insight into that as well.

I'll probably just order what sounds like it will be useful for me and let you all know how it turns out.

Wow, I really like anti-reflective coatings, but only because of how I look to other people through those lenses. If I bought special range glasses, I wouldn't spend the money on anti-reflective coatings. Anti-scratch, however, I'd be all over.

I have a pair of Oakleys with a Rx including a significant astigmatism. Got mine through Lenscrafters.

You can get a pair of Wiley X and have your Rx put in them. I really like mine.

Thanks for all additional suggestions guys.

I haven't had time to order any but after I do I'll follow up with a range report.

Oakley has a set called their "shooting array" that they sell and they do Rx for just about everything. They are rated well above ANSI 87.1 I believe.

Wiley X also does prescriptions and they have a pretty versatile line. Good prices for active or former duty military.

Polycarbonate lenses are made from a similar material as the bulletproof glass in the presidential limousine. One would think they are adequate for shooting. My glasses have Bear anti-reflective coating. I might need sun glasses twice a year. I am outdoors all the time.

I have both glasses and contacts. I have a pair of safety glasses that I bought for when I go to he range with my buddy to pop off rounds. All I do is wear my contacts with the safety glasses. It works for me and all told it was only a couple of hundred dollars for my glasses and a 6 month supply of contacts.
