If you need glasses to see up close does it mess you up while looking down range at an animal or target while trying to focus on the reticle? Are both still clear and crisp? Same for a rangefinder, are you able to read the readout and see what you're ranging? Thanks for any and all answers.
I had mine done several years ago. When asked if I wanted to see far or close, thinking of hunting, I said I want to see like an eagle.
I see like an eagle but never got over thinking like a duck!@
Seeing short range, long range, extreme long range is not a prob. However I need glasses to use the computer, read and see the turrets.
Not a bad trade for not seeing well at all.
Go for it.
However, verify that you are getting absolutely "new" lens. If you get a pair recycled from a woman you'll never be the same.....
