Tinted .5 diopter shooting glasses?

Recently I bought some clear .5 diopter shooting glasses that work like a dream. I can now see the front sight while keeping distance fairly clear.

With summer here, I'd like to get the same thing, but tinted. I've searched high and low but have not found any.

Can someone provide a source for a pair of tinted, .5 diopter shooting glasses (preferably for under $30).

The problem is that for magnified glasses, you need a prescription. I was able to buy .5 diopter glasses from Amazon for less than $20 w/o a prescription. Was hoping for the same thing, only tinted.

The clear ones ROCK, but suffer in the bright sun.

You shouldn't need to send in your prescription to order glasses online. They do need to verify it (by you sending it or calling your doctor) if you order contact lenses. If you think you need glasses though, see an optometrist, don't guess.

Maybe get them at the Walmart counter, then pay to have them tinted on the spot?

How about buying sunglasses you wear over your glasses...
