I just received the goggles and prescription insert and haven't had a chance to use them on a wildland fire yet. But wanted to give prospective RX users an idea of what to expect. First of all, i don't "stump" for companies but Lenscrafters was the only place I could find who would attempt the challenge of cutting the RX lenses. Only took them half an hour! They are so used to cutting glasses that they actually enjoyed the challenge of working on something different. Drawbacks I have experienced are probably not product related but something those of us with RX needs can't avoid. It's just a fact of life. There is terrible internal glare from sunlight and flashlight that occurs between the protective lense and RX lense. This sometimes causes a complete "white out" effect. I am hoping the brim of my hard hat will shield some of this. Smudges and smears: The changeable lenses take some time and effort to lock into place.

Hence the problem whenever you aim with one eye closed, due to the following sequence of events: 1) You close your non-dominant eye (let's say left eye) to aim with your dominant (right) eye. 2) Deliberate closure of your left eye requires contraction of the left orbicularis oculi muscle - so your left eyebrow is pulled downward when you squeeze you left eye closed. This obviously does not happen with your right eye, because you are leaving it open to aim. 3) Your left eyebrow is then pulled BELOW the top rim of the left eyepiece frame - so your left eyebrow is now inside the left goggle, and your right eyebrow is still outside and above the right goggle. 4) You finish aiming / shooting, so you open your left eye again. Your left orbicularis relaxes, and your left brow now rises to its normal relaxed position. 5) Unfortunately, your left brow is trapped inside the goggle frame. Opening your ...
