    I use progressive lenses. I painted the front sights white, so I could get some contrast and pick up the sights easier. There's a really good article on dealing with shooting and 'old eyes' by Grant Cunningham. Find it either on his site, or PDN. I found it extremely helpful.

    Please elaborate...I googled it and nothing came up, at least referring to any corrective lens type thing. Thanks.
    Haven't used one myself but it's suposed to be a ultra clear progressive lense that allows focus with the entire lens

    I wear the regular (line) bifocals. When my eyes really started bothering my shooting, I took my pistol to the optometrist and we worked out a bifocal combination that allowed a good view of the sights (lower lens) when the gun is in the "go fly" position and a clear view of the target (top lens). By adjusting the height to of the line, he was able to make a pair of bifocal shooting glasses that allows me to see both pretty easily. Admittedly, I have to make a momentary "switch", but I'm so used to it that it doesn't affect me.

    Over the years, my eyes haven't gotten any better and I'm now on my third pair of shooting glasses. The prescriptions have changed, but the position of the line remains the same.

    Progressives for sure, but they do take some getting used to. My doctor told me the easiest way to get used to them was to be sure and point my nose at what I was looking at for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it seemed to work.

    For target shooting I wear my bifocals all the time with no problems. As it should be a clear front sight and fuzzy target. For combat shooting I do not use sights and shoot on instinct. Stare at the target point the weapon at the target and pull the trigger.

    I found a bunch on Google: https://www.google.com/#fp=470aa19e9...=perfas+lenses

    Looks like Pentax and Seiko make them.

    I have bifocal safety glasses for the shooting range.
