A friend needs advice re same:Well I have prescription glasses now that are progressive and the viewing
area of both segments of the lenses (near sighted far sighted) are
relatively small, so whenever you are in the in between section my vision is
blurred. You know when you put your cheek on the stock. Does that ever
happen to you? Optimal would be a prescription pair of safety style shooing
glasses (maybe yellow tint) that have a small bifocal and a larger for the
nearsighted long vision. I will check around too.

I almost started a thread on this very subject. Just got progressive bifocals for my birthday and haven't aimed at anything yet. I would imagine a fellow could adapt to about anything.

I had a pair of safety glasses with the prescription adjusted for the range from my front pistol to my front rifle sight. Worked rather nicely.

Here's something which fits standard Genesis XC safety glasses (disposable, around $12, different colored lenses available) -

I am having these made up with my bifocal prescription, which I had set for "handgun front sight" distance at the far end of the close vision zone.

I believe the insert is a good alternative to prescription safety glasses. The outer lens has the ANSI rating, so the insert can be glass or polycarbonite to save weight. Also, the outer lens is easily replaced if it gets scratched up.

For the shooting glasses I would recommend Decot Shooting glasses. These guys know what they are doing when it comes to Shooting eye-wear (considering its all they do) and they have options to fit most budgets. I would give one of their dealers a call. The one I use is on eBay. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Decot-Hy-Wyd-Hy-Lo-Plano-Shooting-Glasses-Rx-Bifocal-Polarized-Available-/120803426702?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item1c2072018e)
His phone number is 602.903.5029 and will consult you based on your specific shooting needs, be it front sight clarification to simply varying lighting conditions.
