    At a shoot last week I saw a man wearing what appeared to be shooting glasses with four lenses, two right behind the others. It appeared that the outer lenses were colored and the inner lenses were prescription lenses. Has anybody seen glasses like that and have you used them?

    I have to use correctional lens and was wondering if this would be a good option. That way I would only have to have one set of prescription lenses and I could match them up with whatever additional color lenses I wanted.

    I have the same, Got them from Morgan. Good folks to work with and I like the idea of only one set of lenses to update when its time. Jake

    Have been using Decot, shooting glasses for over 20 years. As a matter of fact, I am still wearing the same frames I first purchased and, would still be using the same lenses but, old age has set in.

    I now have two colors of corrective lenses and love them.

    Victor, at Decot, in Phoenix has been a real pleasure to work with.

    Good luck, Tom McElroy, Fort Worth, Texas

    These are the Rx Sporter glasses Pat and Jake are referring to. I like them a lot.

    The easily adjustable nose piece makes them also suitable for everyday use.

    Just a note...

    I tried the Sporter + clipons from Morgan despite Wayne's caution that they might be too heavy with my prescription. They were! Even with Trivex lenses I couldn't keep them on my nose. I switched to the regular colored lens Sporter and have no more trouble. Of course, I'm limited to one color lens unless I want to buy a separate pair of glasses for each color I used. I may eventually buy a second pair in a another color but I'm happier with the light weight glasses than I was with the heavy ones and the option of other colors.

    How does Morgan measure your eye placement of the prescription? Do I need to go there or are they at major shoots?

    Your eye doctor can do that. Once he hands you your prescription with all your info on it, all you do is fax or e mail it to Morgan and poof, your good to go.
