Default Do you wear corrective lenses?

Man I ask alot of questions! Can you wear glasses to shoot your bow. I have to wear contacts. I cant see my pin with my glasses. I guess my lenses are to little. Well in 45 minutes Im going to pick up my new pair of glasses. They are big and I may look like a dork. But hopefully I can at least wear them to shoot bow.

Yes, I've always shot a bow with glasses with no issues. I do have to use some anti-fog stuff and wearing a face mask is frustrating at best for fogging but no problem seeing my sight or pins.

I used to wear glasses, contacts hurt my eyes to much. The glasses were a pain...either fogged up or covered with rain drops/sweat, ect. Had a terrible time hunting and target shooting. I did the lasik surgery 3 years ago and it was the absolute best money I ever spent.

I wear the danged things. Can't wear contacts and lasik won't work on my eyes.

I have to wear mine to shoot my Widow. My anchor point is the nock touching my lens.

Heck I have to wear them shooting my compound.

It's great gettin' old!

I wear glasses too. Guess that's what happens after 40, or so they say. The one big problem is that the field of view with binoculars is extremely limited. I haven't found one that let's you pull up easily and aquire the target quickly.

My scopes are all fine so I can't figure out why the binoc makers can't pull it off. It is more a pain then anything else as I love to scope out the terrain when I am in a stand.

Yes, and I really don't like to wear them hunting. They get in the way, plus when I shoot I tend to look straight through the bridge!! I went in and got a trial pair of contacts, but never went back. My left eye is great with the contact, but I need a Toric for the right eye and it won't stay aligned. The doc said it was a weird Rx and it may not work. So, I just use the spectaculars when my eyes are really tired.

I've had to wear glasses since the fourth grade and I hate them. I tried contacts in my teen years, but they bother me. But I can't leave home without them!
