    That's a good idea and worth a try. Please report how it goes for you. If it goes well I will try it myself.

    HP: the problem with Lasik is that you get either close up focus or distance focus, you don't get both.

    I did not know that. I just assumed that the process was to get you back to 20/20 vision.

    This thread will become a sticky, I hope. Much good info here.

    I had a pleasant surprise last summer. Friend of mine works rummage sales at her church. She brought home a box full of sunglasses that didn't sell. She gave them to me and suggested I try them. One pair was a high-end prescription pair that let me see better than the everyday glasses I've been wearing in recent years. Wore the shades shooting and was shocked to see the improvement. Part of the improvement was a better lense grind - the other benefit was the tinting on the lense. It brightened the woods up considerably and improves target images as well.

    I could never afford them, but I believe the old Rayban shooting glasses, with yellow-tinted lenses, did about the same.

    So maybe a trip to your drugstore/thriftstore/DollarGeneral and a few minutes trying various shades will help some with shooting, especially in the woods. Nowadays there is a vast selection of clip-ons for those who wear prescription.

    I bought some multi focal glasses, 2 pair/2 powers :

    And some clip-on sunglasses for them:

    Bought for clear front site view on handguns.
    I haven't worn them shooting yet though.

    I’ve used a pair of flip up sunglasses with a small hole drilled in one eye and cut down too a small disk to work quite well.
    I in fact made the hole larger and use a black sticky dot and a needle to make the hole the size I need for the conditions.
    Just flip down when you are going to shoot.
    I left the off side as is and the added darkness seems to help me concentrate more on my shooting eye.
    Peepsight work but I loose stuff in the dark when I could still see them.
    Scopes seem to brighten things up at dawn or dusk.
    Maybe it’s my fuzzy calibrated eye balls.

    I looked at a redot thing in a shop but it appeared to be more of a comet than a dot to me.
    Will they all do that with my eyes the way they are or are some brands better than others?

    I'm guessing it looked like a comet because you had glasses on when you looked thru it.
    Red Dots are designed to project the dot to appear to be at the target distance and having "readers" on will blur the dot the same as looking at the target.
    I suggest you try looking thru it at an object on a far wall...without glasses.
    If you saw a comet rather than a dot, without glasses on...never mind

    Had my glasses on.
    They are progressive lenses.
    Looked at a wall 15 feet away.
    Maybe if I see someone at the range with one I’ll have a look though thiers and see if it’ll work for me.
    Thnx

    The cheaper the dot sight................the more of the comet effect. I wear progressives and don't have the comet issue with premium red dot sights, like Trijicon's and Sig Romeo's. Look into a triangle or chevron, instead of the dot.
