Lens colours, and why they are important: Light and Weather.
The use of different lens colours broadly falls into two categories, either to help with different light spectrum or weather conditions. Choosing the right lens for different clay colours can dramatically improve your shooting performance. For bright, sunny days, a grey or smoke-coloured lens is ideal as it reduces glare and allows the true colours to come through. On the other hand, if you're shooting against green backgrounds or in low - poor light conditions, yellow lenses or a brown lens can heighten contrast and provide better visual clarity. A vermilion lens is particularly beneficial for shooting against blue skies as it enhances the orange hue of the target, making it stand out. Mixed weather conditions and poor light can have a significant impact on visibility, making it more challenging to navigate and perceive the surroundings accurately. Choosing the right lens or being able to change lenses when conditions change is crucial for capturing the perfect shot. Always remember that selecting a lens is subjective and depends on your personal comfort and the light conditions on the day of shooting. Experiment with different lens colours to find the one that works best for you and your shooting needs.
Aside from choosing the right lens color, it is also essential to consider the fit and comfort of your shooting glasses. A well-fitted pair of glasses, like the SR-ricochet glasses, can significantly improve your shooting performance by reducing distractions and providing a clear field of vision and offer maximum protection. The SR-ricochet glasses are designed with a lightweight frame, ensuring maximum comfort and minimal interference with your aim. Additionally, these glasses offer superior protection for your eyes, shielding them from any debris or fragments that may be released during shooting.
In addition to selecting the right lens and ensuring a comfortable fit, it is also essential to properly maintain and clean your SR shooting glasses. Regularly wiping them with a Napier Ultra-soft microfiber cloth and using lens cleaner can help prevent scratches and smudges.
Proper care and maintenance of your shooting glasses are also crucial in prolonging their lifespan and ensuring optimal performance. When not in use, store them in the protective case provided to prevent scratches or damage.
HOW TO STOP YOUR SHOOTING GLASSES FROM FOGGING UP?
Shooting Glasses can sometimes fog up because of condensation from your breath or sweat; there's not much you can do to prevent it, particularly if you are wearing a face mask which was common throughout the Pandemic, and some people still choose to wear them. Ultra Soft micro filament gun cleaning cloth is an extra soft non-scratch fibre ideal for cleaning barrels, action, stocks, and optics. Keep one of these tucked in your pocket so if your glasses do fog up, you have a quick, safe and convenient way to restore them in the field.
In addition, there are some tips and tricks you can try to prevent your shooting glasses from fogging up:
- Make sure your glasses fit snugly on your face, leaving little space for air to circulate.
- Use anti-fog spray or wipes designed specifically for eyewear. These products create a thin layer that prevents moisture from forming on the lenses
- Avoid wearing hats or hoods that may trap warm air around your face and cause condensation

Can I use my prescription lens for shooting?
A question often asked is "can I use my prescription lens for shooting"? Even if you already wear prescription glasses, it's crucial to understand the importance of specific eyewear for safety and performance when engaging in shooting activities. Your regular eyewear may not provide the necessary protection from potential hazards such as a stray or falling pellet or clay ricochets, flying debris, or even dust that can occur during shooting. Napier SR-Ricochet are designed with high impact polycarbonate to withstand impacts and offer better side protection, something ordinary glasses don't usually have. They can also enhance visibility in various light conditions, aiding in better target acquisition.
Are shooting glasses the same as safety glasses?
While safety glasses can provide some protection during shooting, they are not designed specifically for this activity. Where as sporting glasses have special features such as anti-glare coatings, adjustable nose pads and interchangeable lenses to improve contrast and reduce eye strain, making them more suitable for shooting. Additionally, these glasses often come in wrap-around styles to protect the eyes from all angles, while many safety glasses only cover the front of the face. Therefore, investing in a pair of dedicated glasses is recommended for optimal protection and performance.
As a shooter, your safety and performance are paramount. When it comes to protective eyewear, SR-Ricochet glasses are designed with these key aspects at the forefront. Unlike regular prescription glasses or general safety glasses, SR-Ricochet glasses provide a level of protection and comfort tailored specifically for shooting activities.
