Benefits of Zeiss Tactical Eyewear

Shooting glasses are extremely beneficial when it comes to being on the range, as they protect your eyes and offer more clarity, making you an absolute weapon. That being said, ZEISS manufacturers some great tech for your lenses, and FortKnight Optics has taken it to the next level for your shooting.

Superior Optical Clarity

ZEISS LightPro Eyewear Technology prioritizes optical excellence, ensuring shooters have unparalleled clarity and precision. The lenses are crafted with meticulous attention to detail, utilizing high-quality materials and advanced coatings to reduce glare, enhance contrast (up to 80% over standard polarization), and minimize distortion. This results in a crystal-clear view of the target, enabling shooters to focus on their aim and achieve optimal accuracy.

Whether shooting indoors or outdoors, in bright sunlight or low light conditions, FortKnight Optics Free Range HD lenses with ZEISS LightPro technology provide enhanced visual clarity that is essential for precision shooting.

Enhanced Contrast and Color Perception

    The shooting sports often involve targets of various colors and backgrounds, making contrast and color perception critical for accuracy. FortKnight Optics Free Range HD lenses with ZEISS LightPro Technology excels in this aspect, offering lenses that are optimized for enhanced contrast and color fidelity. These lenses selectively filter light wavelengths to improve color perception and provide a sharper distinction between the target and its surroundings. By increasing contrast, shooters can quickly acquire their target and make precise judgments about distance, leading to improved shot placement and overall performance.

    Impact Resistance and Protection

    Safety is paramount in shooting sports, and FortKnight Optics excels in providing reliable eye protection. The lenses are constructed using impact-resistant materials, designed to withstand potential hazards such as flying debris or shell casings. This robust build ensures that shooters can focus on their performance without compromising their safety. Additionally, our Free Range HD lenses offer built-in UV protection, safeguarding shooters' eyes against harmful ultraviolet radiation. By investing in Zeiss LightPro shooting glasses, shooters can enjoy both enhanced performance and peace of mind.

    Polarization Optimized for Electronic Screens and Illuminated Reticles

      FortKnight Optics Free Range HD lenses with ZEISS LightPro technology have been specifically designed to provide shooters with an unobstructed view of electronic screens & illuminated reticles. Unlike traditional polarized lenses that can dim or distort screen visibility, Zeiss LightPro equipped lenses are engineered to selectively filter out specific light wavelengths, eliminating glare and enhancing contrast without compromising screen clarity. 

      This means shooters can effortlessly view and interact with digital displays, including electronic scopes, rangefinders, illuminated reticles and ballistic calculators, without any loss of visual information or reduction in screen brightness. Shooters can easily access and analyze critical information displayed on digital devices, such as ballistic data, wind calculations, or shot recording. The unimpeded view allows for quick decision-making and accurate adjustments, resulting in improved shot placement and overall performance on the range or in the field.  

      FortKnight Optics Free Range HD Polarized lenses with ZEISS LightPro not only provide optimal screen visibility but also offer protection against glare and eye strain. The lenses effectively reduce reflections caused by light bouncing off surfaces, such as water, glass, or shiny objects. This reduces eye fatigue and strain, allowing shooters to maintain focus and concentration for extended periods without experiencing discomfort or vision-related distractions.

      Durability and Longevity 

      FortKnight Optics shooting glasses are built to withstand the demands of active shooting sports, ensuring durability and longevity. The frames are constructed from high-quality materials that are resistant to impact, while being comfortable for all day wear - Including under ear protection.  By investing in FortKnight Optics shooting glasses with lenses by ZEISS, shooters can rely on their durability and longevity, providing a long-lasting and dependable eye protection solution.


      Zeiss LightPro Eyewear Technology sets a new standard for shooting glasses, combining superior optical clarity, enhanced contrast and color perception, impact resistance, and lightweight comfort. By equipping themselves with FortKnight Optics Free Range HD / ZEISS LightPro shooting glasses, shooters can enjoy improved visual acuity, faster target acquisition, greater optical contrast when transition from light to dark areas, and access to critical information, while enjoying the protection and benefits you’ve come to trust from a partner like ZEISS.
