By Richard W. McCoy, LDO, ABOC, NCLEC Nearly every sport demands eyewear that offers visual comfort, protection and enhanced performance. Activities such as shooting, ice fshing, skydiving and rock climbing require sport-specifc gear, and eyewear is no exception. If your practice isn't familiar with the needs of these more unusual sports, there's no better time than the present to start car- rying some of these lines. SHOOT TO THRILL Whether shooting archery for fun or in competition, Pilla Performance Eyewear features Zeiss VIVX lenses for unsurpassed clarity with over a 120˚ feld of view. Lens treatments include tints for enhanced defnition, high con- trast and background neutralization. The Pilla Panther X2 No Post VIVX is a plano lens model, while the Panther X2 Post Frame accepts an Rx insert. Pilla eyewear performs equally well in trap/ skeet shooting. The grandfather of shooting eye- wear, Decot Hy-Wyd Sport Glasses, offers a tremendous selection and ca- ters to the Rxable crowd. The Decot HY WYD series features large lenses for a good panoramic view and four interchangeable lens packages that cover a variety of shooting environ- ments. Wearers can choose from up to 50 color tints that include red, bronze/ brown and yellow tones. UNDER THE SEA Water sports have expanded to the winter, and ice fshing has become more popular. Oakley's Prizm Shal- low Water Polarized lenses boost green and copper hues to make it easier to see hiding spots; the lenses keep whites bright so the fash of fsh and fies can be spotted on the surface. They also help detect the shadows of fsh. Another choice is Rudy Project's Rydon Flex with Polar 3FX gray lenses. The frame comes with wrap lenses and moldable temples to ft comfort- ably under a hat or hooded winter coat. Good vision underwater is essential in reading gauges while scuba diving.
