But do they accommodate prescription eyewear?
If not, zero interest on my part.
Nope, no prescription directly buy you can have lenses made probably.
If you want something prescription focused (no pun intended) you need to either find a place at an optometrist or on line for example:
I have a couple pair of the Wiley X Boss with prescription lenses.
It would be nice if they would make these in the US.
It seems that 99% of all non-prescription glasses and frames are manufactured by an interlocking monopoly of companies in Italy. That’s big business, folks.
Bad on Bushnell………..notice that they say they have polycarbonate lenses, but not which glasses have them, and not the level of shatter protection they provide. Cheap crap with a big markup and no safety documentation.
Not impressed. Every single set they offer has polarized lens. I’m a pilot, I don’t like nor use those types of lenses nor does any other pilot I’ve ever heard of. Even not flying I don’t like them. I bought a pair of Serengeti’s and didn’t notice until I got down street that they were polarized. Took them back instantly.
Everyone wants to get on the sunglasses train…you know why? Big profits. Sunglasses are high markup items.
Bushnell is launching 10 new styles, I can’t wait to purchase them.
