Does anyone hunt with them? Reason for me asking is that I recently had cataract surgery and my prescripton glass no longer fit my new eyesight. Doc told me to wear some kind of glasses to protect my eyes until the new glasses came in(had to order them). Sunglasses were too dark so I bought some of the yellow-tinted shooting glasses at Wally World. While weedeating , I noticed they really brightened up dark areas in my yard. I think they might work the same way in the woods. Any one have any experience hunting with them?

No experience hunting with them but they really light up an indoor shooting range for me. Should do the same thing hunting I would think.
Did they want you to wear the glasses to "shade" your eyes or to protect from debris?

Doc wanted me to wear glasses to protect my "new eyes." He did not want to test for a new prescription until 2 weeks after the last surgery because my eyesight was changing every day due to the new lens he replaced on my eyes.

I think that I will wear them while squirrel hunting to see if they help.

if you wanted to spend the extra dollars you might want to look at glasses with interchangable lens, sunshinny days, cloudy days and rainy days, I did not think that it made any difference till I got deep into skeet shooting, top quality lenses do make a difference as to what one can or can not see

Anyone seen the green contacts by nike? They are made for hunting, expensive, but look pretty cool.
Good judgment comes from experience, alot of that comes from bad judgment.

Use them for handgun manuvers all the time, but never hunting.
They're great for cloudy days!!

They help a lot on cloudy days. I have used them a few times while hunting.
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

I use them all the time. They really light up the early mornings and late evenings. I do not use them in the mid day however. They tend to brighten things up too much during mid day. To protect your eyes during mid day, I would look into some amber tinted polarized sunglasses. Make sure the lenses do not have the reflective coatings that make them look "cool".
