    I'm finding more and more that as I age I'm extremely sensitive to glare when shooting through a scope, and even with open sights.

    I'm hoping that some here similarly afflicted might have found a solution they would be willing to share.

    Thanks in advance,

    Lot of guy shooting trap, skeet and sporting clays have dark shooting glasses that have a triangular attachment that fits on the arms of the glasses that effectively blocks glare. Never used them nor know what they are called since I'm not a shot gunner.

    I was checking this package out. In addition to scoped rifle shooting, I participate in action shooting activities also. I was hoping for something that would stand up to that type of use, and stay on well during aggressive movement.

    That big orange ball is just creaming me right now. I'm hoping there's somebody out there that experienced similar symptoms that found some relief.

    Thanks,

    My everyday shooting glasses are a pair of $20 wraparound safety glasses with polarized lenses that I purchased at the local welding supply store.

    Also, if you have an existing pair of glasses, go to one of the more popular optometrist's offices and see if they sell opaque side shields for your glasses. They should only set you back a couple bucks.
