I have, like I'm sure many others do imperfect vision. For me RDS type optics never have quite a perfect dot, I usually have a "flare" and a few lines and edge bleed on any dot I look through. I always like to look through all same model sights a store has since some have better emitters or glass than others that allow me to have less of this issue. Today I was at a members night at my range and happened upon a used FNX tactical that had an RMR mounted so out of curiosity I picked it up since two of the same gun never hurts if the price it right and this one was fairly good. When I looked through that guns "free" (they weren't charging anything extra for it over used cost) it was a perfect circle.

I was floored, I turned the brightness up/down, shined lights at surfaces and at myself and looked through other RMRs in the case and they all looked "normal" in that none were perfect. I HAD to have the RMR on that used gun since it's the only dot sight I have ever looked through that has an absolutely perfect border. So $100 later it's mine! I am the extremely happy owner of a RMO7 T2, it's far more accurate and I'm able to pull off true bullseye level shots now. Picture below, 25 yards freehand

Most of use with not so great eye sight at some point decide a dot optic maybe a good option but if you wear bi or trifocals you have to use your distance vision part of the lens to see the dot with out the flair effect and with some dots you need to reduce the brightness even . I used a tub type dot optics since '78 on a hunting revolver and have a ultra dot 2moa on it now and my wife has a M&P CORE since they came out that she had a rmr on for some years but stopped shooting any matchs a few years back our eyes are not getting better and with the darker tint in the RMR darker I changed her optic to the clearer lens tint of a venon 6moa a couple years back . The RMR was not very good in low light levels !

I'm waiting on a Romeo 1 pro for a p320XC that I will carry one day after trying one a couple weeks back on a guys p320 X5. I wear trifocals and my wife has progressive lens and both of use the top section of out glasses to see the dots with no flair but both also work well at a mid setting for light intensity even on brite days . That might be do to years of use with dot optics ? maybe

That's some fine shooting free hand at 25 yards and a heck of a deal on the rmo7 .
