Old Eyes Can Shoot Well Too

What You Can Do When the Front Sight is No Longer in Focus?

It happens to all of us sooner or later. The first sign is having to hold the newspaper a little farther away to focus on the text. Over time it develops into the need for reading glasses.

Well the good news with self defense shooting is if you can identify your target as an immediate threat of great bodily injury or death,you just need to get a good clear focus on the front sight and press the trigger without disrupting the sight alignment to insure a good hit.

Remember that when you do it right, the target is blurry and the front sight is in crystal clear focus!

But what happens when your eyes get so bad you can’t get a good clear focus on the front sight?

Time for glasses!

But what kind of glasses?

What if you already have glasses for distance and driving plus glasses for reading? Do you need a third pair for shooting? It’s hell getting old!

Here’s the answer you’re looking for …

There is a company called Hansen’s Eagle Eye Shooting Glasses that will grind a special pair of glasses for you that can give you everything you need. If you already wear bifocal glasses for distance and reading, they will grind a special area in the lens that is the sweet spot that brings your front sight into clear focus when you move your head to acquire the proper sight picture.

You can then wear these glasses as your everyday set and if you ever need to present your weapon from your concealment holster, your eyes will be able to clearly identify your attacker AND focus on the front sight!

You can contact Richard Hansen, the owner of Eagle Eye Shooting Glasses at eagleeyeshooting.com.

Richard is a good man and these glasses are his specialty so let me know how it works out for you with your Eagle Eye Shooting Glasses!
