Optical sights!

You didn't mention red dot optics in the OP!

You see through the optical plane where the dot is projected, the target stays in focus. Usually regular distance focus prescription lenses work just fine.

Optical sights and red dot optics don't require corrective lenses except for astigmatism to eliminate "flare"!
