  1. Good post

    Thanks, old codger. This is very helpful.

    I've been wearing tri-focals for about 10 years and had a pair of glasses made up with the "middle" prescription only. It makes the sights quite clear, but the target is a bit fuzzy. Unfortunately this isn't a very good solution for targets beyond about 75 yards, at least for me.

    I have bi-focals and I dont have any trouble qualifying but that doesnt say too much ;) But I do have alot of trouble focusing on precision shots, I just broke down and got crimson trace laserguard for my Lc9 and sighted it in this past Sat. but let me tell you it doesnt make you a sharp shooter just gives you a little more help for the old peepers ;)

Takes a year or so for the eye muscles to get adjusted, but he is very pleased. My ophthalmologist says in 5-10 years everyone will be able to get new lenses for a grand or so.

    I think I'll go for instinctive (point?) shooting, and a laser .... but maybe look at the other options ... I wonder how instructors at Gunsight, Frontsight handle this.
    I had the beginings of cataracts and jumped at the chance to get lenses. I got accomadative lenses which allow me to focus from just beyond reading distance to infinity. Computer (laptop) and shooting are at distances that I can see. They often adjust the lenses to see better at reading distance and not quite as well at distance. I chose to go with distance and semi-close.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears
