Post Poor eyesight

HI there everyone. I am George(I.R Baboon as my buddies from the tarantula hobby call me) from South Africa, been hunting since I could pick up a rifle, but I am relatively new to archery. My problem is poor eyesight. At 15 meters I can see the target well, any further than that and I find myself struggling. I do wear contact lenses to correct my vision, but its not 100%. Are there any sights available that can assist me with actually properly seeing what I am shooting at?

Get yourself a laser surgery which will restore your
eye sight back to normal and it will not last for long but it
is worth a try.

Limit your hunting to 15 yard shots. Most bow shots are 15 yards or under anyway.

You may also want to try different bow sights, as some may be easier to focus through than others for you.

they make red dot sights for bows. Check if they are legal in your area. i think that would help
