I am currently prototyping and testing new prescription shooting glasses with a special bifocal design for combat/tactical pistol shooters. If you have any personal exerience with custom designs or features , I would like to hear about them.I'm working from several law enforcement inputs and suggestions at this time. When the design is fixed and testing complete, I will be adding them to my product line at Hansen's Eagle Eye.

Eagle 1, like many competitive shooters with older eyes, I have the standard dominant eye correction at the front sight distance, and the weak eye at infinity. What is magic about your glasses?

My design is only different in that the correction in the dominant eye is a small area along the top rim of the dominant eye lens. The rest of that lens and the other is for distance. Other than that , it sounds like your glasses accomplish the same thing. With mine, when you look around, the bifocal is slightly out of the way and only comes into view with a very slight forward dip of the head straight ahead and forward.

Why not just change your technique to move focal point closer?

I'm sorry Mr. Freeman, I don't understand what you mean by moving the focal point closer.
