Re: The most important optics of all

So, a person with 20-20 in one eye and 20-15 in the other may be able to get a doc to fix him up with some glass to produce 20-10 vision in both eyes too, right? I've got 20-15 vision in my "non-shooting" eye as luck would have it. I've heard with laser surgery it's no big deal to get both eyes corrected to 20-10, just never heard they could do such a thing with glass alone but, I know jack about that stuff anyway.

Re: The most important optics of all

I don't know about the laser surgery. Up here you have to have pretty bad vision already to qualify for the procedure. One thing I do know about laser surgery is that people tend to become photosensitive at night ie. bright lights such as vehicle headlights are nearly unbearable. Most optometrists will only adjust to or close to 20/20 and won't try to see just how good you can get it. Many people can be adjusted to a much better level with glasses. There are also prescription glasses that are "safety approved" (built stronger and approved for working on construciton sites etc...) these eliminate the need for seperate shooting glasses and can be had in just about any shape and style you want.
Famous last words: "Don't worry they do this on T.V. all the time!"
