Help for light glare.
Anybody with an answer please! I have a difficult time with glare from lights at night playing ball, I do not wear glasses or contacts. Does anyone know of non-prescription glasses that would help. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

I use these for that: dark shaded glasses, yellow glasses ( aka shooters), my hat & my glove,
Glare can be from many sources, and it depends on which is there, for what I use.

I went to the eye doctor an told him I needed glasses to prevent ghosting. They work great. Every thing is clear as a bell at night. The only problem I have is they give me a headache with prolonged use. Cos about 90 dollars.

AWOL, welcome to old age- :-) Ever since I hit 40 it seems like the lights on fields I have played on for 30 years are getting bigger and brighter, at least when a ball comes near them. I haven't found an answer to it. Our whole team has experienced it, and we play poorly defensively under the lights. Day games forever!!!

Wait till you hit 60 and more........it doesn't get any better. I've found that single vision glasses helps reduce haze and glare, though.

We have actually gone to a lower league in Albuquerque because we can compete in daylight, but get killed by the bigger teams at night. It absolutely is a team wide problem for us. We had one fly ball in spring league that NONE of our outfielders saw until we heard it hit. Hard to get outs that way.
