Well I finally went and had some made. I have a problem with light and my eyes constantly refocusing when shooting. It is a side affect of the medications they have me on to stop rejection of a Liver I received 3 years ago. A couple of people mentioned getting Glasses made which could help with this. Being me I ignored them and it and just shot as I learned and depended upon Muscle Memory, Point Shooting and trained skill to het me through. I did well with this for the whole time and never thought I would change. My wife and I went down to Opti-Vision the other day and I had my eyes rechecked again. Every time they lower or change my med's it affects my vision. So my wife mentioned to the Optometrist that I might want shooting glasses made up. He asked and I said I didn't need them but while I was speaking he turned the dials on the thing they put in your face and you look through.
He held up a pen in front of me and asked how it looked. I told him fine and then he asked me to look at the chart behind him and read any line. I did this and while I did this I looked at the pen now and then and noticed that everything was totally clear.
I now have Prescription Shooting Glasses. My Dominate Eye is just Glass and my non-dominate is set to my prescribed distance.
Now when I shoot I see my rear sight, front sight and target clearly where as before I only could see the sights or the target.
If your having problems with your vision and have heard of having Glasses made in this manner but are not sure if it is worth it, then you really should do it. I picked up my targets and sights much faster and my follow up shots are also faster with solid hits.
Nothing ego about this comment, but I shoot pretty good and I definitely saw improvement the first time on the range with these Glasses on.
No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
