The best prescription glasses for hunting

Hunting can be a fun activity for many. Yet as with many outdoor activities, you want to ensure you’re taking the right precautions to protect yourself from unnecessary injuries. This means if you’re going to go on the hunt, you have the right type of shooting glasses as well, so you’re set and protected for the venture.

You specifically want to have shooting glasses with the right safety ratings against ballistics and high-impact, high-velocity projectiles. So whether your bullet-protected debris or a spent shell casing went awry, your eyes are safe with the right type of shooting glasses. 

And yes, the options we’re going to look at below are also available as prescription shooting glasses. In addition, some of the industry leaders for safety and shooting glasses offer prescription shooting glasses that help protect your eyes in a modern style.

Oakley Standard Issue Ballistic Shocktube™ Sunglasses

Oakley is always at the forefront when it comes to feature-rich eyewear. The Ballistic Shocktube™ is no exception. These come with both MIL PRF 32432 ballistic protection and ANSI Z87.1 (2015) safety ratings, offering maximum high velocity and high mass impact protection. 

The frames are made from o-Matter™, which is a proprietary lightweight composite for all-day wear. The lenses themselves are replaceable through a hex key if needed. The lenses themselves are Oakley’s Plutonite® and come with HDO® clarity, allowing you to see clearly down sight. In addition, the lenses offer up to 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC ray protection. These come in a matte black frame with either clear lenses or gray polarized lenses and can also come with a prescription.

Smith Optics Frontman Elite Prescription Sunglasses

Another great pair of shooting glasses that have both ANSI Z87 ratings and MIL-PRF-31013 ballistic ratings, protecting the eyes as necessary. The Frontman also has lenses that provide protection 100% against UVA, UVB, and UVC radiation from the sun. They come in a wraparound design to help keep the fit snug as well as protect the peripherals at the same time. 

The lens options are varied between clear, Polarized Gray, Polarized Gray, Chromapop™ Elite Polarized Platinum, or Chromapop™ Elite Polarized Blue Mirror Lenses. They will help provide the necessary clarity and contrast at all times, and the polarized options can help to reduce glare. Of course, you can get these with a prescription and even get the prescription lenses directly online through us. 

ESS Rollbar Sunglasses

The final option we’ll discuss when it comes to shooting glasses is the ESS Rollbar. You can get these with multiple interchangeable lenses, such as the black frame with Clear, Smoke Gray, and Mirrored Copper Lenses, or with just the Polarized Mirror Gray Lenses. 

There’s also an option to get these in a tan frame with Clear and Smoke Gray Lenses. Either style option leads to getting a pair of shooting glasses that also has reached ANSI Z87.1 and MIL-PRF-31013 ballistic ratings. These, like any of the other options above, can come with a prescription as well.
