In the last 30 years I've tried every "new" thing to get the proper front sight focus.

There is nothing wrong with "cheaters" if they work for you. Went that route and they worked until they didn't!

Find someone who will let bring your gun in for your perscription. Be sure that the lens grinders set the focal distince exactly right for your front sight!

Progressives may not work for everyons especially for EDC since the edges may not focus for you.

Personally after trying everything I've settled on strong eye focus for front sight and weak side for distance.

All the best in 2020,
