    When I was wearing glasses, I found progressive lenses worked well. The rule to using progressives is to point your nose at what you want to see.
    It is better to do good than not to do bad.

    Figured I would work thru the headaches, but trying to see out doing other things was too much of a pain. Sometimes I work on stuff up close and sometimes I work on stuff at distance.

    Didn't want to get in the habit of needing special glasses that I might not have with me if I needed them emergency wise.

    I know people who have done the mono vision and grown to like it. I can't say what they do on a regular basis where they would need both eyes the same tho.

    Or mount a laser on the gun and look at your target.

    My impression was to put the distance in the dominant eye? I know we're talking about seeing the front sight here but my impression was dominant for distance.
    I was worried I was going to have to try this and then found an eye doctor that was extremely confidant he could fix me up with bifocal contacts and he was right, it's fantastic. I also have progressive glassesaand wear them some too.

    I had lasik done in 2012. I could see distance perfect after that and up close went to hell. I was trying to see the front sight with my dominant eye. That was the test at least.

    Now after all these years my distance is suffering as well. Doubt I can afford lens replacement so might have to go back to contacts or <gasp> glasses.

    Getting old sucks

    Not that instagram would spy on me or anything, but an ad for sspeyewear dot com came up in my feed, they put a magnifier at the top of the lens on what looks to be safety/shooting glasses. You could also google "top focal tactical" probably.
    I know this isn't exactly what the OP is asking about, but related and thought it might help someone on here.

    As I age, I suffer from this issue. I've tried all type of corrective lens options. Some worked better than others but I went ahead and just fixed it for good.

    With or without corrective lenses, high noon or midnight...I can see the dot.

    ^^^^ This is where I will go if this one last attempt doesn't work for me!

    I mentioned that I would follow up on my customer service issue with SSP Eyewear. I have to really sing their praises on how they treated me. The owner of the company called me and we worked everything out on the phone.

    Not only did they send what I had ordered (about $42 worth of lens and a frame), but for my troubles, threw in two more pairs(1 set no correction, 1 set with top focal readers) of lens in a bronze color that supposedly helps with eye fatigue in the sun.

    Then he threw in a pair of glasses with Polarized lens with bottom readers for fishing! In all, he sent me about $80 worth of stuff. I am going to try these for driving. Maybe now when I glance down at the dash, I will be able to read!

    If these don't work for me, then nothing will and I will be moving to optics.
    Anything is possible
