Even in an extended SHTF situation you'll be able to find or improvise frames. Lenses and the gear to grind and polish them will be services pretty
quickly offered and bartered for. So I'd say concentrate on what you need for the immediate WROL aftermath including sunglasses. I keep a spare set
of both in my vehicle and my BoB. I'm not sure if stocking up is necessary but if you decide to do that, as one person said about, the spare lenses
are the way to go.
I've also spent the past few years making sure ~not~ to wear my glasses around the house and in the office. The result has been my eyesight has
improved just slightly and I can do 15/25yard shooting exercises with equal proficiency should I ever have to. Drills simulating eye injury have been
recommended but I haven't done the pepper spray drills or anything more extreme than closing one eye. I'm not sure I trust myself to even attempt
those without serious professional guidance.
I've been debating LASIK for a decade now but, either as a sign from above or annoying coincidence, every time I'm ready to take the dive a friend
or colleague does it and something goes wrong. -Mags
