Old Eyes - one more time...
Now that I'm over 39 (well, a lot over), I now need correction for both reading and distance. I'm having some success with this arrangement (not a new idea but seems to work for me):
1. Go to 39dollarglasses.com or equivalent cheap website for eyeglass.
2. Go to eyeglasses/ bifocals (sorry old man!)
3. Pick a large lens (so there will be some if you go a bit chin-down when shooting).
4. Put your reading subscription in for the lower portion of the lens.
5. If you shoot right handed, put your intermediate precription in the upper right lens. (You can experiment to get this -- go to the drugstore rack, stick your thumb out at handgun-hold distance, try on various len magnifications until you get the sharpest image. If you are 3.5X reading, then you'll probably find it at 2.5-3X).
6. Put your distance prescription in the upper left lens.
7. At the range, aim (with your left eye closed if necessary) thru the right upper lens, and the sights will be sharp. Close the right eye to get a clear view of the target if necessary. Look down thru the lower lens to reload, etc.
The mismatched uppers are not causing me a problem (blurring, headaches, etc.) when doing other activities during my time at the range (but change them for driving home!).
8. Think about getting a clear lens for indoors and tinted for outdoors. You'll still be out less than $100.... Hope this can work for a few of you out there who admit to being over 39...
