I am far sighted and wear bifocals.  I have not used a rifle scope since I have gotten my glasses and want to purchase a fixed power scope for my rifle.  Would an Eotech  work better for me with my glasses than a conventional scope?

I don't know.

I wouldn't think using the EO would be a problem for you.

 

I think the EO would be a great hunting optic in the right situation.

I have bifocals and don't have a problem with any of the optics as a result of the bifocals.  What type of rifle and what type of use would help us to make a suggestion on optics.

Thanks, Ufriend.

I was racking my brain trying to come up with someone that's used the EO with glasses....

I am looking for a scope for my Armalite 180b...I posted on this a few weeks ago and got some suggestions for a good scope, I am leaning toward the IOR 4x Tactical, and also looking at the Burris short mag.  My scope base from stormwerks is on the way so I am getting ready to purchase.  My groups on a rest at 100 yards are 3 to 4 inches and I want to shrink those down.  I blame some of this poor performance on my eyesite ( and my shooting ).

I thought that maybe a red dot scope may work  better with glasses, so I thought I would see  if some of the forum members have had any experience with this.......FS

fsmitka--an EO will work fine without the glasses-- one doesn't focus on the reticle but only the target. In fact either one will work with farsightedness--after the diopter adjustment has been made, in the case of the scope

I have found "lineless" vari-focus glasses work better with scopes than conventional bifocals. You can also get a set made with no correction except for distance just for shooting as long as you're not having to read an elevation dial. (count the clicks)
