Ultimate Shooting Glasses?

February 7th, 2020

4 minute read

As a shooter, we all know our eyes are very important to us. This is why we all have a set of safety glasses, or even more. I must have half a dozen laying around. A clear set, amber and tinted.

A good pair of shooting glasses is a must for the serious shooting enthusiast.

Each has its place. Clear for low light, amber for outdoor shooting and tinted for those really bright days. Seems like I’m always looking for the right ones, which I seem to have forgotten at home.

Having the option of swapping out lens types is a real plus.

If you’re one of the roughly 30% of the population that’s cross dominant, or, right-handed but left-eye dominant, aiming and shooting is a challenge. Interestingly, only about 4% of left-handed shooters are right-eye dominant. To deal with this we can close an eye or wear a patch. Neither is a good option. For me, I learned to cock my head to one side.

The Top Focal Ultra Kit from SSP Eyewear gives you a modular eyewear set adaptable to just about any need.

The Answer?

My solution? The Top Focal Ultra Kit from SSP Eyewear. The system is a modular eyewear kit that comes with everything you need for shooting, to view your sights and your target in a range of lighting conditions. The kit comes with six pairs of lenses in amber, clear and smoked, with bifocal magnification lenses and the top and also at the bottom. That is a total of 12 lenses in the kit, allowing you to customize the glasses just the way you need them.

You can swap out lens types in the glasses to customize it to your needs.

Because these glasses allow you to change your lenses, you can set them up with a combination of lenses. In this case, a tinted lens over my right eye, and amber on my left. Now I can keep both eyes open. You can set it up just the way you need it as well.

The Details

How about we talk about what’s all in this set?

  • Eye Pro Exceeds ANSI Z87.1+2015
  • Zippered range bag with belt loops and quick release swivel clasp
  • No-scratch lens compartments
  • Microfiber cleaning cloth
  • Left and right amber, clear, and smoked magnifier at the top lenses (three pairs)
  • Left and right amber, clear, and smoked magnifier at the bottom lenses (three pairs)
  • Anti-fog coating is double-sided & permanently bonded to the lens, lasting 65% longer
  • Feature optically correct, decentered, shatterproof, polycarbonate lenses to virtually eliminate distortion
  • Offer sharp peripheral vision, without any blind spots
  • Permanent durable anti-scratch hard coating
  • Provide 100% protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays
  •  Durable TR-90 nylon matte black frame
  • Anti-fog venting between the frame and lens
  • Rubber nose and ear pads
  • Available in 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.00, 2.25, 2.50 & 3.00
Quality features such as an anti-fog coating ensure the performance of the SSP glasses.

Each lens, clear, amber and smoked, comes with your choice of magnification on the top, as well as another set with the magnification on the bottom of the lens. This way you can use one lens with a top, and the other with a bottom magnification placing your dominant eye on the sights, with the other eye on the target.

The kit comes in a protective padded case for all the lenses and gear.

As far as safety glasses, these go above and beyond. SSP Eyewear knocks it out of the park. I found this to be extremely comfortable with no movement while shooting. The anti-fog coating keeps the lenses clear and the anti-scratch is a Godsend.

SSP Eyewear glasses are a great companion for your next shooting outing.

I have several pairs of glasses that are all scratched up. I think these will be replacing all of those. This may just be the last set of safety glasses you will ever need. The cost is $129.99 for the kit. Well worth it, if you ask me!
