    Age and eyesight

    I went to an indoor range after Thanksgiving; nothing says the holidays like range time you know. I was having some difficulty focusing, the grouping was good but off slightly. Time for a visit to the eye doctor. I visited a new guy, understanding that he is a libertarian and a shooter himself. After the exam, I told him of my difficulty with iron sights, he said that he hears the same complaint a lot. His prescription was as follows: go to St. Augustine, find the Fountain of Youth, take a drink, and bring him back some. Otherwise, use optics. He is a long-distance shooter, haven given up iron sights years ago. Great guy.

    I can confirm that eyesight does NOT get better with age I used to wear glasses for reading; now I can only see blurs without them!

    My eyesight did get better with age. I wore glasses from the age of ten to the ripe age of 56 then I did this one thing....LASIK. Now five years later no glasses and I can see when I get up at night....
