Will this effect carry on through my scope and give me 1-2mm parralax error while wearing them?

Any glasses wearers notice anything?

Unfortunately thats the problem with safety specs, they are very rarely optically perfect & the image often moves or curves slightly as you move you head.

If you need safety specs for air weapons you'd be better using a pair of clear or yellow sunglasses, I often us the Bloc Stealth wraps as you can interchange between clear, yellow or dark lenses. Personally I don't wear them to take the shot though, only between lanes to keep the wind & sun off my eyes.
