As Duke rightly guessed in another thread, my glasses are bifocals. But since my vision is still unblurred out to about two feet (unless the type in a book is small) I've never mastered the art of reading with them. Nor shooting.

One pair in fact (the newest) gave me a strange kind of double vision during a range visit. I'd just purchased a Ruger LCP, fitted it with a Crimson Trace laser and was eager to try it out. Imaging trying to place a laser when there are two red dots, one above the other. And one target above the other as well.

Went back to the old glasses and the double vision was gone buy my shooting didn't improve that much.

So I opted for a pair of light yellow shooting glasses. My vision is good enough to see the sights without aid and my shooting rapidly improved.

Only downside is that after wearing yellow glasses for a while, you take them off and everything looks blue. Kinda like taking Viagra but with a different kind of fun involved.

Your not the only one wearing bifocals,Erv. I have had them since I turned 40. Have to get new ones SOON. Eyes are getting worse.

Yeah, that sucks.
I hadn't had my eyes checked in about six years so I went and bought new glasses.
Turns out the old ones work just as well.
That's about $300.00 down the drain. Should have bought a gun instead.

I wear bifocals but really need trifocals. So for me everything is a bit blurry, but I shoot just fine, I just put the blurry post between the 2 blurry dots, on top of the out of focus target.... what could be simpler Smile

So I've somehow lost my shooting glasses and in shopping online for new ones I've run into a familiar problem:
Glasses that are reasonably priced come in blister packs and do not include a case.
Cases are only included, it seems, when you get into the $50.00 and up price range.
Since the glasses are curved wraparounds, they won't fir in traditional glasses cases - so how do some of you protect your shooters so they can be dropped into a range bag?
