    I am looking to acquire good prescription shooting glasses for my 14 year old son. He is at the point that he is shooting trap and/or skeet just about every weekend so I don't mind making the investment. Any recommendation and advise anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated, including recommended models/manufacturers and where to buy.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Highly recommend Morgan Optical (www.morganoptical.net) ! Give Wayne or Harold a call at 800-594-0175 and you won't be sorry. These guys are opticians and shooters One of the best shooting investments I've made.

    When I finally had to go to prescription lens I called Wayne at Morgan optical. We talked at great length and he explained everything I wanted to know including a recommendation for what color to go with if I was only going to buy one color. Cataract surgery is in my future so I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on something that likely will change again when I get the cataracts removed. He recommended that I start with orange color. As of now I do not have any plans to buy another color because the orange is great for both daytime and shooting under lights. I am extremely pleased with the color and glasses.

    Just keep in mind that what works great for me may or may not be great for you or anyone else. I am just telling what my experience was and the personal service that I got from Morgan optical. I have no connection to them what so ever other than buying my first prescription glasses from them. Quick service and nice to deal with.

    Their phone number is 1-800-594-0175 if you want to contact them. I have attempted to insert their website address in the website URL box above.

    Another vote here for Decot. I have been shooting them for 30+ years with Rx lenses and not any problems, ever. I have had to buy new lenses as my prescription changed, but, at $110 per set, I just keep changing them. I just received 2 new sets of lenses that I had them do a prescription change. Total cost for 2 Rx lense sets (blue ice, and bronze 2), shipped to me? $231.00...... Just my preference.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    I know your question didn't mention contact lenses, but if they will work for your son I would recommend them. I've used both prescription Decot lenses in several colors and non-prescription lenses with contacts. When you look through prescription lenses, no matter how good they are, you will look through a different spot in the lens as your eyeball moves around in its socket. Looking through different spots on the corrective lens may provide different levels of correction (and distortion). Since a contact lens moves with the eyeball, the correction is always the same. And, you won't be buying new shooting glass lenses with every change in your son's prescription. cls

    I too would have recommended Morgan IF they would answer their phone, I had been VERY pleased with their service until they were bought out. I needed new Rx lenses a couple months ago but when I called (several times) I got their answering machine I did leave my contact info never did get a response so I went elsewhere and got my lenses. I'm probably the only one that has had this happen but they lost a sale and customer. Ross Puls

    1) contact morgan optical
    2)look at the ranger sporters----the script becomes the base lense--colors are clip ons
    3) since the shooter is 14 his script will be changing , this way you only have to change the base lense

    I agree with 'Switchblade 327' regarding Contact Lenses. At 14 your son would probably adapt quickly to either 'daily' or 'monthly' lenes. I recently went back to contacts after a break of over 30 years. I love them and with the Randolph Rangers that I bought I can see really well. No more pushing the glasses into place before shooting - always looking as if I had 'normal' vision. Just my opinion. These things are personal choices.
