Depending on the range ... you can fix the problem with a red dot sight , I fixed mine with a Millet SP-1 and on another rifle a Tasco Pro-Point 1 X 30 ... they don't magnify so are useful at iron sight distances . They work by putting the deer and the red dot aiming point in the same focal point ...use your distance vision to see both .
At longer distances a Scope works better ... a 2X power is good for not too distant and a 4X power has served all my deer hunting needs ... I don't take shots over 150 - 200 yards . Your eyes have aged and can no longer focus on the rear sight , front sight and distant deer , all at what seems like the same time ... it happens to us all ...you need a little optical help is all .
