    I've worn glasses the entire time I've shot a bow and never had any problems. I just plain old near sighted though. I think the only ones who have any problems have bi-focals. You should also consider contact lenses or lasix....:noidea:

    I cant shoot with glasses on. For some reason it just does not work. I am currently investigating lensed sights to solve my problem. Maybe everyone is different. I know friends who wear glasses and can but not me.

    THANK YOU JUSTIN.......DANO is a dork.....:censored:

    the glasses are pretty cool, FLEXON??? I think....you can tie them in a knot and the go back to the regular shape.....

    plus these are gonna have magnetic stick on sun shades........pretty cool for $350........for the frames:faint2:

    the lenses are covered under my wifes insurance, and they cover 150 for the frames......

    my eyes are not bad enough for lasic and i know I cant do contacts.....

    Archeryoptics will make you a lens that puts the optimum focal point up in the corner of your lens where you look when aiming. Normally the focal point of a lens is in the middle where you look through normally.

    I've got magnetic stick on sunshades and I'm not real impressed with them. for $350 you might want to look into 2 pairs, clear and shades, or maybe the transition lenses. That's probably what I'm gonna do next time.....:noidea:

    Relax Elvis. I shoot with sunglasses on so I see no reason why you couldn't shoot with regular glasses on. Your form will more than likely change a little. I **** my neck to do it so you may feel a little awkward at first but after a while it will become 2nd nature.

    I personally can't shoot with glasses on. :noidea: The green dots move too much.:D In a multi pin sight. The different collors aren't laying in the same line. With out glasses, everything is how it should be. I'm sure if I gave it a try for a while, I would get used to it. I just throw my contacts in and shoot lights out...:biggrin1: LOL well I shoot OK.
