Re: Using optics/ Wearing glasses
There are many different eye related problems. I need glasses to read, but not necessarily walking in the woods, although that vision is degrading a little bit.
Generally, I can adjust the focus on a scope and get clear crosshairs, without using glasses. But, I'm actually more comfortable with the "vision thing" as #41 might say; if I wear them all the time.
The problem is cold weather and hoods, and scarf clothing around my face, etc. Usually fogs my glasses, so (instead) I have to wear a watch cap, which is not as warm.
Anyway, that's the dilemma. Wear the glasses and set my focus for them, or go without, and lose a tiny bit of sharpness, at extended range.
Wearing the glasses will always permit a little side glare, even though I have the expensive coatings and the polycarbonate lenses. Since I hunt at night, I notice this a lot, which is why I tend to go without the corrective lenses in cold weather.
It is definitely something that everyone needs to sort out as best they can. I'm still working on it....although, I must say; I sure miss the 20/10 vision of my youth.
Good hunting. LB
