    I use corrective glasses while hunting because of nearsightedness. My most recent pair have the best lenses available to the local provider and I went with UV and antiglare coatings. The polycarbonate lenses are highly impact resistant and are fully contained within the frames.

    My previous pair have transition lenses that get darker when exposed to UV and are polarized. I still use them when fishing / canoeing / driving. However, that coating slightly reduces normal light transmission and I didn't want that in this latest set of glasses. My reasoning is that after going to all the trouble to buy good scopes, I don't want to limit my low-light shooting capability with the wrong choice of lens coatings.

    Protective eyewear is also important when hunting in thicker woods and have many times kept small limbs from damaging my eyes. This is especially important when moving in the dark.

    I wear wrap around safety sunglasses at home when doing yard work. On the beach it just normal sunglasses - corrective lenses would be a waste since the alcohol consumed already causes blurry vision...
    You should have been there when the LSU girls' soccer team came out sightseeing. They were all bayou beauties in prime physical shape and were aware of it and were proud of it. The mackerel were biting that day and most of us were more than happy to help them catch as many as they wanted. A couple of the girls were real fisherladies. Lots of laughter an many unashamed, admiring glances. Make an old man cry and make a young man burn.

      I got hit in my eye with a sapling while deer hunting. The pain was unbelievable and I scratched something. ?
      My brother and cousin drove me to a New Brunswick Canada hospital. ?
      I had to wear an eye patch the rest of the week.
      My equilibrium was all mess up, therefore my hunt was limited to walking on a gravel road, so I wouldn't fall over.
      Our truck was nearby if I needed to rest.

Anyhow, I now wear clear trifocals when not in the sun---I tried contacts after my cataract surgery, but I was too accustomed to wearing glasses and went back to them. I wear brown tinted polarized trifocals when outdoors and not in the woods---I've never been able to see in the woods as well with any kind of tinted lenses.
          I use a bifocal Amber Lenses Great in the dark woods even better in my T-stand up high. Give them a try country $6.00 @ Walmart.

            It comes and goes. I wear prescription glasses.
            I have my day to day glasses, yellow shooting glasses, and Bolle sunglasses all in my Px.
            One of them is on my face, but it depends on the day and the activity. If shotguns are swinging it's most likely the yellow pair.

I do think about protection, though, especially when I'm going through a crabapple thicket and remember one of our local game wardens, who took an inch-long thorn in his eyeball a few years ago. It's probably not smart for me to do some of the things I do without some kind of eyewear.

                No bad, I think what you meant came through. (I guess I've read enough of your posts by now; I'm fluent in "6phunter-ese.")
