BJones Sights now has a new line of glasses...TYPE-2
The BJones TYPE-2 Wire-Frame Glasses are designed
to place the corrective lens directly in front of the aiming
eye. The metal frame can be bent to "Tilt""Twist"or "Cant"
to align the optical lens in the best place to afford the
shooter the best possible corrected vision. No more looking
through the "Edge" of the glasses frame. The "Sweet-Spot" of
the shooter's correction will now be "Centered" in front of
BJONES TYPE-2 GLASSES are available for Left or Right
Please select the Model and Size below. $50.00each W/Hard Case
The distance between the eye-pupils is of little
importance to a shooter. You will likely not be using the lenses
as a matched pair.... rather, you will see the sight picture
with one and either the scope image or sight scale with the
other. Check the temples of your current glasses frame.The size
numbers usually look like this: 50/19 145(small) ........ 50/19
The Photos below demonstrate the fit and look of the BJones
Glasses. The frames are shipped with this style Medium Grey lenses
and metal box.

Unlike some of the adjustable frames
currently being used, the BJones Glasses TYPE-2 frame will not
"Slip n' Slide" during recoil. The desire is to have the
glasses fitted to suit your needs and never need to be
re-adjusted. Minor "Bending" will be necessary to set
the "Tilt""Twist"or "Cant" to suit your position.
Remember, shooters never stand erect and look straight
ahead. The head is almost always tilted down, the neck
is twisted to the side.
The lenses are 45mm diameter and round
so that you can "Dial" or "Clock" your astigmatism to
suit your position and the angle to the sight alignment
needed to attain the best sight picture possible. I have
made arrangements to have your prescription ground onto
a lens for the aiming eye at $30.00 each. The lenses will be
plastic and available in different colors.
I suggest a distance/astigmatism (SPHERE & AXIS)
prescription lens for your aiming eye ONLY...! This way the
shooter can still see downrange for safety and flag
reading. I have used a similar pair of glasses for over
5 years without troubles, but your experience may
The frames are very light weight,
therefore, they will likely not tollerate continuous
bending. Set-em and forget-em.
glasses are Light Weight, Fit snugly, and
Maintain your Sight Picture.
The metal frame material is limited to the
number of times it can be bent.
Before you attempt any additional "Bending and Fitting"
Try your new BJones Glasses by first looking in the
mirror to SEE How they Fit.
The Righthanded glasses should look and fit
like the photo below.
If the glasses fit similar to
the photo, you should next test the
glasses while wearing
All your shooting equipment.
There is no real substitute for testing new equipment....!
Have a pair of pointed
(Needle-nose) pliers handy. Cautiously bend the nose-pads
desired direction with slow and small
Using your fingers as a tool is not recommended!!
Once you are satisfied that the
glasses frame is close to what you need,
you then remove your equipment and rotate the
lens to the desired spot.
Note the "Aiming Eye" Lens attaching screw is
extra long...and has
been left loose, intentionally. Carefully rotate the
lens to find your "Sweet-Spot" of
your prescription. There is a mark on your lens at
3:00 and 12:00. OR use the bifocal line as a
guidline. This is to
reference the direction you have rotated the lens. You can
evaluate the best spot for your vision by
looking at a small object at any
distance beyond 10 feet and an object
like a pencil at arm's length.
When you are satisfied with the lens position,
tighten the extra-long Temple screw.
After you are sure the lens has
been tested at the Range and it is clocked correctly,
I suggest you place a speck of glue or nail
polish on the exposed threads
of the Gold screw.This is to reduce the
possibility that the screw will loosen.
They are available "Pre-Bent" to suit
the shooter's basic needs or can be delivered just the
shape of a normal use glasses frame. Instructions on
correct bending/shaping will be sent with all frames.
