    I did use them before cataract surgery. I used Decot's for years and tried Rangers for 2 tries and then Pillas. The quality of glass used by Pilla is superior to the others and you pay for it but for me it was worth it.
    I wore Decot's without and with RX for over 30 years and they are very good and service is great.

    The best place I've found is Morgan Optical Sport Glasses. These guys not only are great
    Opticians, they are also clay shooters. Full line of Randolf Engineering And others. Give Wayne a call - you won't be sorry! wayne@morganoptical.net. 716-373-1275

    I got my prescription shooting glasses from De-Cot and have been very satisfied with them.

    For me, definitely CLARENCE WILLIS, Baltimore, Ohio He got glasses to Canada faster than most people get them at home. Quick, accurate prescriptions with all combinations of the Rangers (X L frames,bifocals, Planos Etc.) Oh yeah, dont forget the custom made shooting sportswear (tailored) I got a hold of him at 800-745-6o66......BUD......Almost forgot, He dye's them any colour or shade of a color that you want (YES i mean the glasses lenses) www.customsportswear-optical.com

    Got mine from Steve Maltzhan and really like them. Pretty sure he makes the

    lenses and is a very good trap shooter himself.

    His web site/ phone no. can be found on any of his threads on SGW.

    If you need scripts get Ranger sporter, have your script put in the base as a clear clense, then get the color clip ons---when your scrip changes you onyly have to change the base lense. I used this prior to getting Lasix

    I get my Rx Shooting Glasses from Clarence Willis @ Custom Sportswear&optical

    Baltimore ,Ohio. + He is at most of the Major Shoots.

    He's the man for Randolph Ranger Frames and Glasses.

    Try his Missouri Magic Lenses.

    I went to my local optician. Found a nice set of large lens Titanium frames that feel great. Told the optician what I needed & wanted to see ane how I would be looking at targets. He set the view points (progressive bi-focals) and voila. There great! Very light weight & cost me $20.00 total with my vision insurance. I prefer clear lense 99% of the time. But will probably look for some clip on shades.
    Ironically my vision (distance) has improved the last two visits to the optometrist and I was suffering from over correction. The targets are crisp and clear now!!

    I got mine from extreme eyewear and they were made by Post4 because they came directly from them. I couldn't be happier: Ti frames, two sets of lenses and case. $240 shipped.
