As some people may already know - bifocals + safety glasses = annoying fail.


So, what do you do when playing airsoft if you wear glasses?

1) goggles ( Which i think i'll do )
2) contacts
3) prescription safety glasses ( Do they exist? and where can i get them? or just ask doc? )


So yeah, any suggestions?

Any of those are an option, I myself hate goggles so I used an older pair of glasses that have the same prescription (non bifocal) but didn't fit my big head anymore. So I removed the arms from them and attached them inside a pair of saftey glasses, Works perfect for me.

They're are some awesome prescription stuff you can get though. If your willing to put out the loot I'd look at it.

Get goggles with RX inserts. There are a couple of threads that Duckman wrote extensive posts in about this. And he normally doesn't post more than a few sentences tops.

I bought a pair of safety glasses that fit over my specs. Paintball goggles also fit over them fine.

Best goggle setup I have ever had. Cost me ~$300 all in (taxes, shipping, getting the lenses cut, etc.) but I can honestly say I will not play airsoft without them now. I have been to games with 100% humidity and 30+'C weather where EVERYONE has fogged (Wiley-X, ESS, Bolle, etc. etc.) except me (and everyone else running turbofans.) It might cost a bit, but the ability to play all day in any weather without having to give a second thought about your eye wear is more than worth it in my opinion. I have seen EVERY anti-fog product fog under the right conditions, except my turbofans.

I run a similar system with ESS LandOPs with th RX adapter and a homemade fan system. Larger than the Profiles, but very happy with it.
