Target and game blurry /scope options

Now that I am getting alittle older and had cataract surgery and wear corrective eye glasses since my youth I notice looking thru scope is slightly out of focus.Have to take glasses off to get the crystal clear image I had.Not an issue on the range,but in the woods and trying to determine points on a deer at a distance it is tough to see.Scope only has the focus which is mainly for reticle focus I believe.Have Leupolds.Would I have to buy a scope with other focus adjustments for this issue?I am not that versed on any other scopes available to help with this?

You should be able to adjust the clearness of your target with the back eye piece. There usually is a small ring you have to loosen, then make your adjustment by turning the eye piece one way or the other to get a clear picture, then tighten the narrow ring again. I just had cataract surgery and had lens implants for close and distance. I had to readjust my scope.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

My Dad had the same problem, He got a AO scope and he would adjust the AO part to see the target clear.

Test one before you buy. I know it worked for him.

Good Luck, Stant

I will try that..I just thought that was more so to focus the cross hairs?

If you are trying to count points on a deer you should be using binoculars. Never point that rifle at anything you may not want to shoot. Bino's won't go BANG!!

Did you make the adjustments to your scope?
