Has anyone tried this product? See it advertised in a lot of outdoor mags. I have been considering it for some time now. Old age is creeping up on me and I find it harder to focus on things. Have had eyes ck'd and am fine, it is just aomething that happens to some of us as we get older (49).

Seems to me that Snow was trying that stuff, but haven't heard anything about his trap and SC scores.

Dang bobkat,your memory is pretty sharp,that was almost three years ago...

Sly,

What happens when you answer the ad for the "free trial" (two weeks worth) is they tell you that to get the full effect it takes at least 30 days to work thru your system and open the blood vessels in your eyes,so they gace me a deal I could'nt refuse,"buy one months worth and get the second month free" for only $49,with my scores hovering around average that summer (B class) I jumped on board.

I have normal vision 20/20 and this stuff in my opinion is just "smoke and mirrors" I did'nt notice any type of benifit from picking up the target quicker or target crispnest,however the eye drops they sent seemed to help lubercating my eyes,more so than vizine eye drops.

BTW,

My scores did jump up later in the summer to AA but thats another story that started with a major gun purchase...

Save your money...

slyfish,

I think snow may have hit on something there. I have had "dry" eyes for several years and didn't know that's what caused some vision issues for me until I had LASIK surgery and made my "dry" eyes into something more like dust although it technically corrected my distance vision.


I would suggest stopping by your local pharmacy and getting the lubricating eyedrops to see if they help with crispening things up for you. The drops are at best a very temporary help but may help to diagnose a better eyecare management plan. There are a couple manufacturers but they all tend to come in single use disposable droppers (some can be recapped though).

There is also a prescription eye drop called Restasis for dry eyes. It does a much better job than the lubricating eye drops but it's systemic so it takes a few days of use to see the benefit and then you can probably get down to a one every other day, or so regimen.

The other treatment (if it is dry eyes) is fish oil, or since you may want to support farmers instead of fishermen, flax oil capsules a couple times a day to boost natural eyeball lubricants. I use a couple flax capsules a day during times when my eyes get dry now and then slack off until it comes back.

Note: The flax oil capsules taste a lot less like fish squeezings. Burping shortly after a fish oil capsule is, ummm...unpleasant.

Good luck!

In case I wasn't crystal clear. The fish and flax oil capsules are to be taken orally.

I don't want anyone thinking they should be squeezing a salmon into their eye. LOL

Side note:

My optomitrist says that visine drops are actually bad for your eyes and he doesn't recommend using them... He also recommended a lubricating drop... He suggested Systane drops..

They seem to work good for me..

Heck Allen, I was hoping to hear a report of someone poking a hole in a fish oil cpsule and "oiling" their eyeballs wih it? That'd be like stuffin a suppository where the sun doesn't shine without unwrapping the aluminum foil from it! LOL
Who knows, you change the oil in your car once in a while don't you - why not change the oil in your eyeballs, too?
Flax and Salmon oil have Omega 3's which are supposed to be good for your pipes. Salmon oil from those capsules works pretty well to juice up your bait when you are cat fishing, too! On a bet last spring I stuck one on a bare hook and caught a nice cat with it. Just the capsule for bait! LOL
Snow, sounds like I'd better buy a new gun to improve my pheasant scores this year! I'll tell my wife you recommended it!

Bobkat,

Hell,"why not" you would probably get that new sxs you've always wanted.Target shooters are the worse whiners and come up with the most excuses why they miss...A new gun always seems to be a quick fix.
