I use corrective lenses (prescription eyeglasses) to look at small details further away than six feet or so, and for driving, etc.; but I don’t need them at all for reading, or any other close-up work.

To shoot with some scopes, I have to wear my prescription eyeglasses to be able to see both the cross hairs and the target clearly. With other scopes, however, I have to take my eyeglasses off or I can’t see well. I have tried to adjust the ocular lens, but I can’t seem to be able to change the need, or the ‘no-need’ for the prescription glasses.

At the range where I normally shoot, they insist that I wear eye protection, which is not a problem when I use scopes with which I am OK wearing my prescription glasses. With the other scopes, though, it is a problem because I have to take my prescription glasses off, and use the safety glasses provided at the range, and I just can't see well at all with them.

In my younger years, when I used to hunt quite a bit and did not need corrective lenses, I used to just shoot without any eye protection.

A simple question:
Should there be a way to adjust the scopes that I normally use without prescription eyeglasses so that I can use them while wearing the glasses?
