  1. Vision issues!

    I am in my mid-forties and my eyes require trifocals or progressive lenses. I am also cross-eye dominant.

    My goal is to be proficient with tactical handguns, shotgun, carbine and precision shooting. Handguns seem to work well for me and I perform OK with long guns using red-dot sights, but, iron sights are rough and moving targets with a riffle or shot gun difficult to ay the least..

    Glasses with progressive lenses cost $700 and up, most good red-dots are $500 to $1200+ and quality scopes start at $2000, maybe, and go up to where ever it stops. With these prices, I cannot afford to just keep trying different options.

    I would like to learn techniques to best utilize the vision I do have, along with options regarding eye wear, types of sights and scopes and, how to best configure and use them for my needs. This is a complicated topic, but I would greatly appreciate it if you could touch on this issue if you have experience in this area. If not, could you possibly refer me to an individual that is knowledgeable regarding the combination of multiple vision issues and diverse types of shooting?

    Thanks for the informative programming.

    Keep it up!

    1. I think you will see that with the adjustments available on modern rifle scopes, you will have a much easier time with them. Most mid to high end optics have a diopter adjustment on them that will help you to adjust the scope to your eyes. You also have the option of wearing a regular set of glasses (not bifocal or trifocal) and adjusting the scope with the glasses on.
