I can see again

So I'm 62 and over the last year I have lost a noticeable amount vision mostly my closeup, but I was using readers for newspaper sized text. My pistol shooting is a guessing game due to blurry sights and blurry target. With this little gem stuck on my corrective lens for distance I can see again! I highly recommend this little gem! Has anyone else tried using the aperture?

Another type

I also have found my vision slightly blurry looking over my handgun sights.
I'm at the point where I need reading glasses, up close, but don't need glasses, yet, full time.

I tried these glasses with the tiny holes in them and it does the same thing.
apparently your eyes focus when seeing thru the holes and as long as it's not too dark out I can shoot with them just fine.

COSteve came up with something along the same lines as the attachment, but used (IIRC) something like electrical tape with a small hole in the middle. Similar challenges with the eyes and he did it for the same reason. As he shoots (and hits!) bowling pins at 200-300 yards with his iron-sighted Mini, I'd say it works well for him!

3 1/2 months to go until Medicare...Things don't get any better with age - other than more knowledge and conversing with a grandson as an adult.

I've had one for years. They work great. However, mine has been sitting in my shooting box for I don't know how long. There if I need it though.
