    I have to wear sunglasses in all sorts of conditions. I wear Endura Marin as the frame is invisible and the nose clips can be removed so the view ahead is as if I am not wearing them, apart from the comfort of getting rid of the glare.

    I have to wear glasses normally but due to a neck that no longer rotates enough, i can't see passed the bridge so I can't wear them while shooting. Not a problem while i'm actually shooting, the problem comes when i'm getting ready. I shoot barebow and looking at my tab on the string is a blur so getting my thumbnail in the right place is fun.

    Or a wrong one if you have to turn your head too much to see past the bridge... be much easier to get a pair of sun glasses that doesn't require a different head position from when you shoot without.

    I am thinking about buying Knobloch archery glasses with prescription lens (a Bristol sports optician currently has the the K2 model with a 23mm lens for 159.90 complete minus a 10 voucher from their website) but with a second tinted lens. They had a write-up in Bow International #63.
