    Just wondering if shooters are having no line bifocals put in there prescription shooting glasses. Going to have a set of prescription shooting glasses made and need the distance correction but not sure I should put in the no line bifocal too.

    when I ordered my RX glasses I went with just the distance part of my prescription and they work fine.. don't feel I need the bifocal for shooting.

    I can see up-close well enough to function - but need distance correction. So I just go with distance correction in my shooting glasses and if I need to look at something up-close while shooting I tilt my head back and look under the shooting lenses - I see no need for the extra $$ for bifocals in my shooting glassses --- but you may be different.

    If you only get one pair of lenses what is the best all around color?

    Plake,

    Best all around color depends a lot on what background you shoot against. I use Vermilion because I shoot against a tree line and Vermilion makes the green trees go darker and the orange targets brighter. Checkout the color recomendations at morganoptical.net.

    Plake No no-lines distance correction only they are for shooting not reading. If you carry a bag with your accessories in it put your reading classes in it the if you need to read you will have them.

    I also wear no-line bifocals the only time I tried to shoot with them(because I forgot my shooting classes)was a disaster the width of the no-line bifocals is narrower in the middle and when you roll your eyes to the target just before you move your gun your focus will change back and forth. Not good.

    Color becomes a personal preference I use medium Bronze for everything except night shooting.

    to paraphrase Tuco......When you have to shoot, shoot, don't read......

    when I am done shooting, my regular specs (either clear or Sunglasses) go on, the ones with bifocals....

    Isn't there solutions for fitting over prescription lens so you can use a range of colors?
