    I will be getting a new eyeglass prescription this week (after cataract surgery a while back) and was wondering what the general consensus is regarding the best shooting glasses,i.e., Ranger or Decot.

    I am looking for (obviously) eye protection and good customer service. Cost is almost a secondary issue.

    I would really appreciate your opinions.

    John: You can't go wrong with either one. Also, Post 4 is another choice that has a great product and good service. I have a pair of Decots and a pair of Post 4. I like them both equally well. I just got a new prescription. I called Decot with my new prescription and had my new lenses in 5 days! Just be sure when you get your eye examination; have them include the PD. (Pupillary Distance). You will be asked that when you call in your order. Good Luck. Ed

    It also helps to get the optical center of the lens raised 3MM above the center of the lens. HMB

    If you can find an eye Dr, who will let you bring your shotgun in and strike a shooting pose as you would while tracking a target to the break point, he can then find the optical center for your lenses. He can adjust the frames, the lenses and the optical center so that you have the clearest site picture possible.
    I've done it before and it was extremely effective. I'll be doing this again soon, my prescription needs tweaking.

    In my opinion, if you are a seious shooter & change your perscription every 18-24 months, consider Ranger sporters--the perscription lense is the base lens while your colors clip on to the frame. I gave away 12 very expensive bifocal perscription lenses after I had Lasik. Guess what? Lasik,promotes cross firing, learned this at a clinic last weekend. I've used Rangers & Post4, both are good. Service with Mike @POst 4 is great as well with Wayne @ Morgan Optical.
