    Need some new Rx glasses and wanted to get some that were also usable for shooting.

    Any recommendations for Portland area optometrists that know shooters requirements?

    Thanks!

    All eyeglass lenses have met safety requirements for decades now, glass is used rarely now. Any optomitrist can give you a the style and tint you desire. I dodn't understand the question.

    This will educate you that your question is a good one.
    I have found Water Tower Vision willing to work with me. Keeping the front site clear with good head position is important and bi/tri focal blended lenses allow for this. You may even want a 2nd pair of glasses for tactical and shooting needs.

    Dr Egert in Oregon City was really easy to work with. When I first went to see him he asked if I was a shooter. I prepared to blast him for being on of those anti gun docs when he said that he needed to know as it makes a difference in how he sets up the prescription :)
