I am seeking help on a problem I’m sure others have, now that I’m older (52) I need reading glasses, which plays havoc with my aim. With the glasses the sights are clear but the target is fuzzy; however without the glasses the sights are fuzzy and the target is clear. Also, the shooter’s area of the indoor range I use is somewhat dark, while the target area is brighter. Any suggestions are welcome.
Also, I’m new at forums, so if there are previous posts, just point me in the right direction.
Thanks.

I was always taught that your eyes were supposed to be on the sights anyway. Aim at target, get a crystal clear sight picture, fire.

I have a similar problem (unfortunately at 29 yrs). I can only focus on one or the other. The best i've managed is to quickly line up the sights to where i'm shooting straight and trying to guess at the center of the fuzzy red dot. Once I fire and see where I aimed I switch focus to the target and keep shooting while focused on target making adjustments on where the shots land. With a .45 that can be tough cause it jumps a lot, but with a lot of practice it works pretty well.

Lasik is my long term plan though.

This is a great video to watch. At the end, he explains to a student how to aim. I believe it answers your question Bob. BTW, this dude is a machine.

nice video. I dont care for his stance, but it's hard to argue with results.
