      The way I do it is:
      1. Find an eye doctor who isn't afraid of guns.
      2. Have him find what prescription will let you see the front sight clearly, roughly about 6" in front of your fist.
      3. Have that prescription put in the lens for your dominant eye. The other lens will be the distance prescription.

      Now, how to make it work. Really no different from shooting when you don't need correction. Look at the target, with both eyes open, your brain will pick the eye that sees it clearly. Transition to the dominant eye, the target will turn into an out of focus blob. As you make the transition, note how your desired aiming point changes. You should be able to pick out that point, even though it has changed. Hold the sharp and clear front sight there, align the rear with it and all will be good. It actually works very well, you will find it nearly impossible to go from front sight to target and back, which usually has you focusing on some point in between the front sight and the target.
