Default optics

so i am a blind man, and recently i have been caught up in a few discussions about hunting optics. this is a very serious topic for someone like myself. i just cant seem to find anything that will work for me. ive spent thousands of dollars on the worst optics a man could buy. everything seems to be black when i look down them. however i have heard that the quality of the vortex razor hd is crazy!! i would love to know if you guys and gals have any advice for a blind man like myself?

At the risk of sounding unsympathetic, which I am not, no optics will allow a blind man to see and especially well enough to be safe in the field with a firearm. Optics magnify what you are looking at and to some extent gather light but they will not correct blindness. It seems to me if you have spent thousands of dollars and nothing works to allow you to see, you have your answer.

Thank you OT for your thoughtful and caring response. I will keep this one on the front burner to see where it goes.

I think oldtimr is right. There are getting to a lot of "good" binoculars out there... is there away to enhance your vision and I think the binoculars will work better.

I am a deaf man. I bought a bose acoustic wave stereo, put in surround sound , even added amplifiers . I cranked the volume yet still cannot hear it. what to do, what to do.

forgive me for being facetious, this just struck my funny bone.

perhaps an optometrist can give you the help you seek.

I hate to say it, but after reading the OP it sounds to me like a Spammer wasting our time with a big joke if he is truly a blind man in the true sense of the word blind!

But man oh man, if it were true that Vortex would for for a blind fellow, think about the marketing potential - "Vortex optics, so clear even the blind can see..."

All kidding aside - if you can define "blind" a little better to match your personal situation, maybe we could help. Some people will say it tongue-in-cheek, but even for those legally blind, not all blindnesses are the same. Knowing your particular issue would help.

Similarly, you say you've spent a lot of money on the worst optics in the world - what have you tried and what didn't work about it?
