I’ve worn corrective lenses since I was about 10 years old. Without them I was pretty close to being blind. I started wearing contacts when I was 15 and since then was really hesitant to wear glasses. Probably because of wearing awful tortoise shell frames and then the horrible wired rims of the early 80″s.
I got lasik about 23 years ago and it made my vision GREAT !! I really wish I could have had that kind of eyesight (without corrective lenses) when played sports and worked construction. But, when I started sitting at a desk in front of a computer for eight hours day, my vision started to fade. It’s not really too bad, I think I can drive without corrective lenses but my eye doctor says differently.
Every year when I go to the eye doctor, she asks if I want good far vision or good near vision and I have always chosen “Far vision.” But it got to the point where I could literally not read not read newspaper sized print even with cheaters on. So this year I chose “Near vision.” The doctor gave me “Mono vision” which is where my weak eye is focused closer and my dominate eye is focused for distance.
THIS WAS GREAT ! I could now look down the sights of my pistol and not have to close my left eye !! The front sight was in perfect focus.
Well, I have had some problems with my eyes and I haven’t worn my contacts for over a week which is amazing given my vanity !! Not wearing my contacts ins’t too bad, I mostly just need glasses just to drive.
Well, just for fun, I wanted to see how well I could shoot without my contacts. This is the first time I’ve been able to get out to “The Woods” this year to do some fun outdoor shootin’!!!!
Not too bad !!
