Shooting glasses have existed for many decades. However, at the beginning innovative shooters improvised with simple lens holders which they soldered at a slant to a wire frame. So, in a simple way they were able to look through the optical centre point of the lens without distortion. However these constructions were rigid and inflexible and could not be adjusted very well.
The Karlsruhe optician Bruno Knobloch, a good and committed shooter, who was at that time German champion with his team, created a variable system for the fabrication and adjustment of special glasses for shooters. In 1957 he had the first shooting glasses system patented. His business developed well over the years and is now led by his two sons Frank and Thomas who are both ophthalmic opticians, in the 2nd generation.
Over the years the shooting glasses system developed by Bruno Knobloch has been constantly improved and supplemented with many useful extras. The developments were often carried out in cooperation with well known professional shooters from all over the world. The Knobloch brothers are making sure that this tradition is carried on. They are always in contact with the shooters and accompany them to many competitions around the world, so that they can offer their experience and service
on the spot.
