Presbyopia = farsightedness resulting from a loss of elasticity of the crystalline lens with age.

Went to the range today with my G19. I did not have a problem before with the G21 using my usual shooting eyeglasses. Today, I had a difficult time maintaining a focus on the front sight of the G19, probably because it was a few inches shorter, suddenly I had to push the gun away from me to maintain foxus and my arm was not long enough. Front sight was still blurred. :upeyes:

Getting old is not pretty. Will visit Eyecutter tomorrow and have new shooting glasses made. Nothing like an Opthalmologist who's a shooter to boot in getting shooting eyeglasses.

I'm nearsighted and at my age, I can safely assume na presbyopic na rin ako.

When you reach this stage, a shotgun seems to make more sense.

Went to Ideal Vision this PM after visit to Eyecutter. One hour lang kuha ko na sports glasses ko. Di naman ako lumulutang, Kitang-kita front sight at blurred nang konti ang target. Went to Armscor Makati this PM with the G19. Ok na. Pero kelangan pa mag-practice nang konti sa distant targets.
