Default Shooting safety glasses over prescription glasses

Anyone have any good recommendations on safety glasses you wear over regular prescription glasses? There is not a whole lot of options out there.

My shooting glasses are prescription and are rated to stop 12ga birdshot more than enough for typical range debris.

Any decent optometrist can make prescription safety lenses

If your eye guy doesnt know what your talking about find a new one. My frames take interchangeable lenses i have a set of lenses for pistol rifle and shotgun. My pistol lenses have a bifical that aligns with my natural pistol hold and focuses on th front sight. My rifle ones have no bifocal and neither does my shotgun lenses but they are a redish tint which makes clay pigeons look like black dots. Very easy to see.

Is the focal center of you rifle and shotgun classes shifted to the inside corner of your dominant eye? I only ask because because I wear my glasses at the range. They work okay but since I look thought the section closer to my nose, the correction isn't as good as it should be.

Just curious

my eye glass guy had me bring my rifle and pistol in so he could see where im looking and thats where he put the focal point for handguns and rifles. so those lenses are kinda odd when using them for anything but looking down the sights.

my rifle ones are a little off center since my main use is scopes and ar15 open sights.

shotgun are also the same.

I have seen safety glasses worn over regular glasses on construction sites, but not at the range. I suggest you look at Graingers catalog, online under safety equipment.

You might consider getting a set of prescription safety glasses. Pretty common in industrial / manufacturing businesses and usually available from local eyeglass vendors. The safety glasses can be equipped with removable side shields so you don't have to wear two layers of glasses and still get side protection.

Does anyone have experience with prescription Wiley-X or ESS glasses? I know some of their glasses do the Rx inserts also. Instead of just getting prescriptions for each individual lens, you get a prescription lenses insert you can use with all of the lenses for that particular model.

Do a Google search for "OTS Safety Glasses". Stands for "over the specs". There are bunches of them.
