I have worn glasses for nearly 50 years, that's the least of your worries.

For all of us out there that have to wear glasses, if we don't wear them, we may not be able to see the deer clearly. I don't think it is a problem. In my case, when I get busted, it's usually because I made a stupid move that was seen. Old timers have told me not to make eye to eye contact with a deer or it will bolt. They can't see your eyes wearing glasses, especially sunglasses.

I have always worn sunglasses when hunting but I’m more concern of the recoil from shooting my gun then the reflection of the glass.O

I've got a pair of Oakley's with the gold iridium lenses that work great during bright sunlight. They add a lot of contrast so things really stand out, especially deer. As far as them bothering the deer I haven't had one pick me out yet with the glasses on.
