Karen specializes in the consultation and individual design of protective eyewear for shooting sports. Many people struggle with the limitations that prescription lenses offer when trying to enjoy their chosen sport. Iron sights are no longer clear without having to raise their heads in an awkward position to find “just the right spot.” Areas in a progressive lens may not be providing clarity peripherally while shooting trap/skeet. These and many more frustrations stand in the way of the enjoyment of these sports. Karen is a bullseye shooter herself, holding a Master classification with the NRA and made the Mayleigh Team at Camp Perry in 2016. Combining years of shooting with over 40 years as a licensed optician, she has the ability to understand what you are experiencing and the optical knowledge to design the perfect solution for you.
I am an IDPA shooter and have gone to see Karen for a few years now. She has been so patient and has gone above and beyond to ensure I have the best glasses. She has a unique way of understanding what I am trying to say which has not happened with other people. Being a shooter herself has been a real plus. I am so happy I found her! -A. Anderson
I have purchased several pairs of glasses from Karen for both shooting and also for fishing. I will go to no one else! She is so easy to work with. It was great to be able to work with someone who understands me and my challenges and is comfortable with me bringing my firearms. She did exact measurements and I can see my sights perfectly! I highly recommended. -M. Stevens
I have worked with several Opticians trying to find a solution to being able to see the sights on my pistol clearly with very little success.
Then I met Karen at a match where we discussed what I wanted to achieve with corrective eyewear. After a very thorough consultation. She was able to come up with a solution that allowed me to once again see the sights clearly. Her knowledge of the shooting sports is invaluable when designing custom eyewear.
I have been seeing Karen for all my eyewear needs ever since.

I have been working with Karen for a few years now. Until I met Karen, I had no idea there was an option to tune my shooting glasses to such a fine degree. Being able to talk to an Optician who totally understands what it is that I am trying to achieve is far different from seeing an “eye doctor”.
Karen being a high-level shooter herself relates to your needs. She understands the terminology in the shooting world. When I was encouraged to bring my guns and optics in for my eye exam and evaluation, I was shockingly surprised.
Karen has not only fixed my Bullseye indoor shooting prescription but is now helping me in my outdoor action shooting needs.
I would suggest all shooters make an appointment with Karen and you will see just how much better your shooting vision can be. Not to mention she is willing to meet at a shooting range to try different scripts! A+++
