Any seasoned shooter will tell you the importance of gearing up properly with eye protection. Whether you’re off to the range, training course, or out in the wild to hunt, it is extremely important to protect your eyes.

When you head out into the online optical safety segment, there are a few things to keep in mind while shopping for prescription safety glasses, sunglasses, and goggles. Consider the following key features of quality shooting glasses before you make your purchase.
Build-In or Removable Side Shields
Wearing shooting glasses with a pair of built in or removable side shields might be your saving grace. Alternatively, you can buy wrap around safety glasses that offer similar protection. What side shields and wrap around safety glasses both provide is a higher field of physical protection around your eyes. They do this by increasing the field of protection of the physical barrier that protective tactical glasses create. This increased barrier will help to protect your eyes from ejected shell casings, sunlight, and dust.
Meet Industry Standards of Protection
Additionally, purchase yourself a pair of shooting glasses that meet industry standards of protections. Glasses with safety ratings and certifications go through rigorous testing. This testing ensures that the glasses can withstand high impacts and are tough enough to protect you in a hazardous environment. You need glasses that are impact resistant. We urge our customers to remember that prescription safety glasses with ANSI Z87+ standard ratings are highly impact resistant and protective. Alternatively, at RX-Safety we also carry a range of MIL-PRF-31013 ballistics rated tactical glasses. Prescription tactical glasses that have MIL-PRF-31013 certification are the military standard.
Also, other features to consider while shopping for shooting glasses are protection from the elements. Make sure your shooting glasses are built from protective high-quality material. They should be made of material such as high-quality TR-90 Nylon which is lightweight, but still impact resistant and extremely durable. UV protection is also a must when shooting outdoors in direct or indirect sunlight. Lastly, our number one advice for shooting glasses is to make sure your eyeglasses prescription is added to your glasses. You’ll see better and feel much more comfortable while shooting. Of course, this also helps with accuracy. At RX-Safety, we pride ourselves on offering an easy ordering system where you can add your prescription to virtually any pair of frames. Additionally, we offer a wealth of customizing options such as tints and anti-fog coatings.
