Will Bifocals effect shooting a scope ?

If your bifocal glasses are properly fitted you should never know they are there when looking through a scope.  I've had bifocals for about a dozen years and never notice when shooting.  I do have to be careful using binocs.  If I hold them too low I see the line on my lenses

I can sight my Rifle in then go to the woods and I will shoot over a bunch of the Squirrels at the distance I sighted my scope in at. Can't figure it out .

My bifocals dont seem to be a problem. How are you judging distance? Check to see that the scope mounts are tight.  What scope and mount are you using?

 

 

As for binoculars I have to take off my glasses.

Millet Rings Simmons 3x9x50 I set my scope for 25 yds It's pretty easy to judge 25 yds.

Have had bifocals for years and never experienced any problem with scopes. I too generally remove my glasses when using binocs.( Last year I began experimenting with a low power Zeiss mono and find I can use it with my glasses.)
