Don't Give Up Your Guns

No apology necessary. I'm just advising what has worked for me but I'm certain we all have variations with our vision issues. I couldn't find the thread but I do recall someone here had indicated they are a patient or friend with an Optometrist who is a shooter. That could be a great find! :cheers2:

Funny you mentioned that. When I had a new eye exam to get new glasses about 4 months ago, I had them work up a prescription for pistol shooting glasses. Focusing at arms length for target pistol shooting. But I never sent in the script to order the glasses.

I don’t think those would work for the rifle. But what I think would is those ones where they put the magnification on top of the lenses instead of the bottom. I had a pair in my cart several times but I’m not sure of the magnification factor. I need to check out some reading glasses at Walgreens and find out the number.

Well I guess I can put in my best deal, Ran into a guy who lives in a rest home, we talk guns and stuff and asked me if I wanted to by a 357/38 cal. Henry's rifle from him. Not knowing what condition it was I asked the price and he responded $750.00 with very few rounds fired. He needed money for new teeth. I told him SOLD. Gave the money to my friend to hold until he got the Rifle. Well It turned out the be the yellow boy that was engraved. Near new. With that I have since purchased a Henry's pump in .22 mag. and a single shot rifle in 2453 cal. All nice guns

You need to have your vision checked for cataracts. I recently had cataract surgery on my left eye and I had my cataract surgery on my right eye 4 years ago, and know I no longer have the need to wear glasses and just turned 72. Please do yourself a favor and get your eyes checked and have cataract surgery. You will totally surprised how well you will see.

That may have been me, Dr. Ronald Dutton here in Pahrump is a shooter, hunter, and Opthamologist. Good guy, and fully understands setting up glasses so you can see iron sights on a hand gun, or rifle, or the use of optics on either of them as well. Clear Vision Eye Center is the name of his practice here in Pahrump, 1-775-751-1791, 1601 E Basin Ave Ste 101, Pahrump, NV 89060. He used to have an office in Vegas on Sahara, but sold that one a couple of years ago and now only practices here in Pahrump.

He's the one who found the Ocular Choroidal Melanoma Cancer in my wife's eye, and arranged for us to meet with the only specialists in the world who deal with that extremely rare form of cancer. Without his help and urging, she would have lived only about 4 weeks AFTER he found it, because he set up the appointments for us with the John Moran Eye Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City where he has friends working, and we went there 2 days after he found the cancer, they were able to forestall her demise by 39 months, she was the second longest survivor of this cancer known, most folks don't make it 3 months after it is discovered, and I believe her long survival and the fact that she had good quality of life for all but the last month of those 39 months was due to Dr. Dutton's skill and bedside manner. He was a friend of many years long before discovering her illness, and remains a good friend as well.

First off apologies for hyjacking this thread. I’m not sure what the shroud would do. I can see the front dot on the Henry and I can see the V notch on the sight. I can put the dot on the V notch, but I can’t focus the sight, dot and target clear enough to get tight groups.

A lot of people say peep sights. But all this seems like I would just be trying to focus my old eyes another way. A scope would only have one signal plane to focus on so that’s why I was thinking scope.
It is a hood, not a shroud, but that is not important. The hood or the peep will help a small amount, but not enough for us older guys. The hood was added to a some firearms to shade the front sight, and create a more visible profile of the front post, though the eye still had to bring three objects at different distances into focus at the same time (rear notch, front post, target). With a peep sight, the front post appears to be situated on the same plane as the rear sight, reducing (somewhat) the need to bring multiple objects into focus at the same time. A riflescope allows the sight (crosshairs) and the target to appear on a single plane, with no need for the eye to have multiple focus points. If a scope is properly adjusted, the crosshairs will be imposed directly onto the target.
