Equipment: Shooting Glasses by Knobloch

A few days ago I received the Knobloch Lens Testing kit from Illingworth Imports. here is a photo of the kit along side a pair of Knobloch glasses and my own pair of Knobloch shooting glasses.

Knobloch Lens Testing Kit
The lens kit comes with the test lens holder, 12 test lenses for testing spherical correction, and many accessories such as a centering device, an adjustable iris etc.

Below is what my pair looks like with a left eye side blinder and an adjustable iris.

The left eye blinder lets me keep both eyes open while shooting, the white color helps to control the amount of light going into both eyes. The adjustable iris is just a nice add on, letting me close the amount of area I look through down to the size of a pinhole or as large as 15mm. This lets me control the amount of light I want going into my eye and the amount of sharpness around the gun sights.

Finally, this is what they look like on me. I actually don't see much when I'm shooting. I look at the front and rear sights and don't really focus on the target itself (the target is actually blurry when I shoot at it).

Hey, can you give me directions on where to buy these? I don't need all the lenses, just the blinder.
I lost mine and I don't know where to buy another pair. I live in Romania FYI.

Thanks Alexa

Hi Alexa, I usually buy all of my gear here in Canada from:

I don't know who the best company to buy from would be in Romania.

Cheers,
Al
