Re: [SCA-Archery] Re: Hit offset from aim
If you your vision is impaired, even with glasses on, here's two cents
worth from a fellow who shoots left handed since he's blinded in right eye,
and I work mundanely with people with vision problems:
Cheapest and most reasonable; thing to do is have a fellow archer stand by
and cue you to wear the arrow is going, how it's flying etc.
If you are consistent with your anchor point on the draw, foot place ment
doesn't change and body position doesn't change, and you are getting
clusters, then use binoculars with your glasses.
Third, suggestion, more costly, but eventually may prove of benefit to you:
Talk to a low vision specialist and see if telescopic lenses might be of
benefit when shooting.
Lastly, if you need a reasonable accommodation at any archery event, even a
practice ask for it, such as making sure the sun is at your back at all

It's not like you have to push any of us very hard, though!
