How to Choose Target Shooting Glasses
Eyes allow you to see the target and aim before you even use your finger to pull the trigger so it is very important to protect them while shooting. Whether at the range or in the field, accidents with ricocheting bullets, powder residue, shattered pieces from clay targets, ejecting shells, and other debris put your eyes at risk. The sun, wind, and dust also contribute to more reasons to use good eye protection.
There are different brands and models of shooting glasses to choose from so it’s not surprising why people are having trouble deciding what shooting glasses are the best.
Lens is the most important feature to consider when choosing shooting glasses. One that enhances target visualization is desired rather than impede vision. There are three materials used for shooting glasses lens today… crown classic, CR plastic, and polycarbonate. Polycarbonate with thickness of 2.5mm is the best when it comes to safety and optical perfection. Polycarbonate is the lightest amongst the three, better impact resistance, and provides UV protection. In fact, it is the same material used for bullet resistant glass for vehicles.
For every lighting condition, there is a corresponding shooting glasses lens color appropriate to give enhanced target acquisition and visualization. If you like to shoot under different conditions then you might want to consider buying interchangeable lens instead of getting multiple shooting glasses. A good shooting glass absorbs 99% of UV radiation regardless of the tint or color of the lens.
The lens should also provide a good coverage on your eyes so ergonomic design is very important as well. Choose shooting glasses with a balanced and lightweight frame usually made of aluminum, plastic, or titanium. It is also important to have adjustable nose bridge so that you can wear it with your eyeglasses. Some people prefer to get custom prescription shooting glasses that also works best.
Wearing protective shooting glasses while target shooting reduces your risk factor and allows you to enjoy the sport more. Get yourself a good shooting glasses now.
