I have both distance and reading glasses, (age I'm afraid is catching me up!!), I shoot without wearing either as I find that it's more comfortable without glasses on and the scope more than makes up for my shortsightedness.

I normally wear vari-focals but recently I've found it better to shoot with my glasses off (just while I'm actually looking down the scope). I still use single vision -0.75 dioptre glasses for pistol but frankly, using true open sights on a rifle is now pretty well impossible although I can just about manage dioptre sights provided there's plenty of light :geek:

Hi Folks,

As promised here is the update on my spectacles.

I picked up my new bifocal glasses yesterday and they are a great improvement. I no longer struggle to get the correct sight picture as I did when wearing my varifocals. I put this down to the bifocals having a much bigger area of the lens dedicated to distance thereby reducing the amount of head movement to get a good sight picture. I have retained my varifocals for everyday use but will now use the bifocals solely for shooting. :D

Cheers
