Thanks for the reply. My up close vision went at 40 YOA. I've used Bob Jones lenses and corrected shooting glasses. Both are big improvements but still not like it was back when I was 20/10 & 20/15 and no presbyopia.
I am familar with Art N. from the NM Forum. Ive used Neal Stepp at ISS in the past and brand loyalty directed me back to him. I'll brush up on hyperfocal over at NM and ask Neal about it. I still shoot the M1A but and drifting towards match rifle and prone. Hopefully one size fits all.
I still have plenty of trouble with the wind and I'll buck or drag wood for 9s or worse but I can SEE all that now. Those out-of-nowhere-looked-good-to-me-WTF? shots are now just a bad memory.
That's me - wind is good, touch it off, looks right down the middle and it's a wide 9. That is frustrating to the point of taking the fun out of it.
Very, interesting to me also. Just like Griff, My right eye, now, clearly focuses on front sight but coyote or pig is a slight blur. I thought this was detrimental to shooting, so I have been transitioning to scope hunting (which I don't like for this short distance). The confusing part is that my left eye is better and I can focus on both the front sight and the target, Wish I was left handed. However Jim and Maury say I shouldn't be able to do this anyhow.

There are laws of physics that control how light waves act and generalities on how parts of the human body work and age but there are no absolutes that describe how every individual will perceive things. What you see, what I see, and what a third person sees may not be (often aren't) exactly the same.

But again that depends on the individual. I'm left or right eye dominant depending on which glasses I'm wearing, very right-handed, and an M1 is a right-handed rifle. So I shoot right-handed. It's easier and, if I execute a good shot, I see well enough to hold the 10-ring.
It depends on the situation too. For controlled shooting on a known distance range what I do works for me. In a different application such as hunting, it might not work out so well.
All theories and generalities and conventional wisdom aside, if something works for you that's the only thing that really matters.
