    I have been wondering for some time about the angle of lenses when shooting. Most shooters when shooting have their head down and their cheek to the comb. This appears to me to slant the angle of the lens' forward at the top. What if any effect does this create since you're not looking straight forward as in walking?

    Any eye doctors out there that shoot?

    Shooting glasses and regular glasses are not set up the same.

    Can do it but have a hard time shooting with my everyday glasses.

    Duckman,

    Hey I have a thirteen year old girl looking for a real set of glasses on our AIM team. Will you sell them to me for that price? I will send you a pic of her in your glasses as a bonus.

    Let me know
    Thanks
    Craig Wagner

    Frank Rively at the Grand, he's the best! Focal point set higher in shooting glasses for that reason.

    I tried shooting one time with my prescription, no line bifocals. The targets looked like footballs and streaks.

    Get good prescription shooting glasses from someone who shoots and can set them up correctly for you. We use Dr. Rively.

    Morgan also shifts the optical center of the lens up and to the side, but Wayne made some points in this regard.

    Shooting lenses are necessarily larger than street lenses to accommodate the need to focus eye when the shooter looks through the edge of the lens. The strength of the prescription and the technical specs of the design of the lens limit how far they can move the op center using standard frames. Most shooting glass frames put the lenses and the temples at close to a right angle to compensate for the normal down-tilt of the head mounted on the stock but, again, there's a limit to that down-tilt.
