    Contacts and Decots ... I have worn contacts for over 35 years and because they are on the eye itself you get a better correction of your vision ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Try Knobloch K5. Great product. Have had mine for 3 years and can not imagine shooting with other prescription frames.

    If you can comfortably wear contacts to correct your vision, then a set of plano shooting glasses could be a great value... otherise your options would be limited to having expensive Rx lenses tinted and cut to fit one of the major frame companies like Randolph, Decot, Post4, etc... OR using a lens system which incorporates a fixed clear Rx lens insert arrangement then using a cost effective tinted plano lens to clip-on in front of the clear Rx lens...

    Personal preference, Randolph Engineering, and Morgan Optical, Olean NY.

    RE has special inserts for Rx that attaches behind the XLW lenses. You can change the RX and the lenses as pleased.

    NYX Sport Vision System is another choice that has the option of an add-on prescription lense behind the tinted lense. The add-on is held in place by the nose clip inserted into the lense that you choose for the lighting conditions that day. There are a wide variety of tints available to optimize your choice for the best view of the bird, taking into account brightness, background, contrast, and your eyesight. They are very competitive pricewise with the better known Decot and Randolph Engineering glasses. Something additional to check out and compare.

    Clear RX lenses and different color clips...that is what the Knobloch glasses are.

    They also have a nosepiece that is adjustable and can be put up high so when you have your head down, you are looking through the middle of the RX lens which is where you want to be.

    I will shoot a picture of my set and you will see...not common in the US but they are awesome!
