    It's called the microsight. Uses optics in a new way to enable both target and iron sight on the gun to be in focus at the same time.

    I better look into! (pun intended)

    I've had cataract surgery, they replaced the lens with a new, corrective one. I've worn contacts since 1962. I couldn't even see the large "E" on the chart without them. Now I have 20/15 unaided BUT I can't see up close and have to use "cheaters" to read or see the computer screen.

    This could be a real help.

    Having competed with peep sights back in the days when I had eyes that worked, I think this could be the cat's "tail."
    Depending on cost, I can see(pun) buying at least one, and probably more.

    Wonder if it would still be considered an optic for competition?

    Who knows what the regulatory bodies will say.....

    However it doesn't magnify, at least not in the current incarnation. I suspect that you'll find it in glasses eventually, and they're not likely to ban those (I hope). :D
