View Full Version : Any recommendations for over-glasses eye protection?

September 3, 2005, 11:57 AM
I wear contemporary eyeglasses that I bought before I got the gun bug. I don't really want to buy new prescription glasses so i was wondering if anyone knew of any shooting glasses that fit over existing glasses?

I'd especially like ones with silicon nose and ear pieces that won't slip down! I currently have cheap Hoppe's I think for my wife and me. They fit over alright, but the hard plastic ear and nose pieces slip down all the time.

If you have a link to Midway or Brownell's, that would be great!

I use the plastic trimmer glasses you can get in the lawn/garden section. They have adjustable earpieces that keeps them from slipping down. I also have a pair of Fitover sunglasses, which I got at Cabelas. They are made to wear over your prescription glasses but have a stylish look. :cool:

The "birth control goggles" from chem lab will work, if you get desperate.

Dillon used to sell clip-on shooting glasses, if you are not looking for side protection. I bought 3 pair while they were in stock, yellow, clear, and brown, and use them a lot, including for hunting. I suspect they are still being made by someone. Since I don't need any, I haven't been looking, but someone else may know if they are still available.
