New Glasses, UGH

So I get new glasses and go out to shoot. I find that I can not use my anchor point because when I do I get double vision thru my glasses.[V]
So now, two weeks before season starts, I have to not only move my sights up but also, have to shoot enough to get used to the new anchor point.
Been shooting at the range on the way home from work then going out a couple hours later to shoot.

    I had the same problem with my glasses. Last few years I used contacts.

    I am ordering a new pair of shooting glasses soon. They are the ones that have big lenses that almost touch in the middle, prevents the double vision from the edge of the lens/frame.

    Bifocals yes. No problem with clearance.
    I had thought about getting a pair with just the near nearsightedness lenses but, I would have the same problem.
    I wear small frame glasses so I think that the double vision comes from trying to look out of the corner of the lens.
    I just have to accept the fact that I HAVE to wear them and adjust my bow and anchor point accordingly.
    I still HATE looking through my binocs and range finder with them tho. Not sure if I'll ever get used to that.

    I just hit 50 last week and my eye sight went all to heck. Going to the eye doctors soon to get glasses. I was thinking of getting contact lenses so I won't have to worry about them fogging while hunting and shooting. Getting old sucks[xx(]

    Yes it does. My body is older than my years though. New hips 10 years ago. Bifocals last year. I'm only 44.
    Guess you just learn to live with it.
