My uncle is having a hard time seeing through his rifle scope. He wears glasses and missed a few last year probably due to this problem. I was wondering if anyone that wears glasses has any recommendations. He was wondering if a larger objective such as 50mm would help. The scope he has been hunting with is a nikon buckmasters 3-9x40. Any advice is appreciated.

A few things come to mind hope something here helps.

Have you tried Refocusing the Scope to His Eyes and Glasses??
You would be surprized how many people don't know you can/should do this or overlook it when it comes to scopes.

Does he have Cataracts (SP)? These alone can cause vesion trouble with optics,esp depending on the light level ie early or late in the day.My own uncle had this trouble for a few years until he got his taken off.

Could also be his Frames or Bi focals if he has them.I have had trouble a time or two with my frames blocking my sight picture
one reason I love the Redfield "Widefield".My Uncle has had trouble with his now Trifocals,luckely he can see at distance better than I can btw,and doesn't wear his while hunting.

Just my opinion but I don't think going to 50mm OBJ will fix his problem,the scope he already has is pretty darn good/clear and bright scope.Upgradeing to better a scope with better glass/lens coatings might be of some help he would just have to go and look through them to see.

Good luck to you and your uncle.

I used to hunt with glasses and had to adjust the eye piece for my vision.

Another thing. Once you have your eyes examined and glasses
changed, you will most likely have to refocus your scope.

When reajusting the scope, do it at the highest power on the scope. Things will be clearer coming down in power than if you
adjust at low power and then go up in power.

One other thing. I have some scopes that once I got my glasses
changed that I can no longer get them to focus properly for me.
my glasses not the scopes falt. Have him go and look through
different scopes he may find one that looks much better to him.
