If you’re not wearing protective eyewear while playing your favorite sports or at the shooting range, consider this: Prevent Blindness America reports that hospital emergency rooms treat 40,000 eye injuries every year that are sports-related. Flawless optics, performance, and durability are essential in the shooting sports. Captree Opticians offers both prescription shooting glasses and non-prescription shooting glasses for trap, skeet, sporting clays, target, and general shooting sports.
When it comes to hunting or just simply spending your day at the shooting range, there are many safety precautions that need to be considered, and protective eyewear is definitely on the top of that list. There are many reasons why proper eyewear should be worn at all times when operating firearms. For example, hunters are always at risk from getting accidently hit by a ricochet or cartridges that are ejected from the firearm, and even excessive powder that can blow back into your eyes. Of course, proper shooting glasses can also protect your eyes from other hazards when firearms are not in use such as branches, leaves, dust, as well as solvents from the firearm itself when cleaning. For 20 years, the Ranger shooting line has been the leading choice for professional competitors who take their vision seriously. At Captree Opticians, we offer several different styles of shooting range glasses in both prescription and non-prescription lenses, each available in a wide variety of shades and colors. Since polycarbonate is such an impact-resistant lens material, it works well to protect eyes from fast-moving objects. Polycarbonate lenses also have built-in ultraviolet (UV) protection and are coated to be scratch resistant, which is a valuable property for outdoor sports.
There are many great reasons to wear protective eyewear. Another aspect has to do with performance; sharp vision is a vital ingredient to performing well in nearly every sport, especially at the shooting range, and participating when you have less than 20/20 vision is counterproductive and even dangerous. Let shooting range glasses from Captree Opticians allow you to be the best competitor you can be.
