I have never used a red dot sight on a rifle and I'm nearsighted and wear glasses for distance vision. Being 55 I can no longer focus close up while wearing glasses and was wondering if I would be able to use a red dot sight.

Yes, you would be able to use it no problem at all.

And trust me on this-I speak from experience

You should have no problems, as long as you are not color blind. I have a friend that is, and he can't see the dot. Other then that, since you should shoot a red dot with both eyes open, you should be good to go.

Yes indeed, the red dot is your best option.

You should be looking and focusing on the target so up-close focus won't matter. It may actually help as the actual sight housing might blur out allowing you to see the target better.

Thanks everyone. A friend of mine has an old Tasco red dot sight on a pistol that I checked out today. When I hold the Tasco sight near my eye like I would with a rifle the dot appears sharp while focusing on a distant object, but I get a secondary faint red dot about 6 dot sizes above the bright one. I wonder if I will get a second dim image with an Eotech. Is this normal.
