How They Work
The Merit Optical Attachment sticks securely to your glasses with a small
The human eye, whether or not prescription glasses are required, cannot
focus on both sights and the target at the same time. The eye will
constantly shift focus from the sights to the target trying to ensure proper
alignment. Unfortunately, as we age, the eye loses the flexibility which
allows it to do this; thus, sights and target begin to grow fuzzy.
There is a simple way to combat this by increasing your eyes' depth of
field (range of focus). If you look through an aperture or pinhole of the
correct size, you will be able to see both sights clearly, and the target
will be clearly defined as well. It was utilizing the principle of a pinhole
that allowed the original box camera to work without a lens, and its
pictures were in clear focus from about 2 feet out to infinity.
To check out this phenomena for yourself, try this rough, but
Make a fist, put it up to your shooting eye, and look through the tunnel
formed by your fingers. By manipulating your fingers, you can adjust the
size of the hole.
Hold a pencil out at arm's length; the point represents your front sight.
Pick out a distant object to be the target.
Sight through your fist, adjust the hole to the right size, and you will be
able to focus on both objects near and far.
Merit apertures are adjustable, allowing the shooter to change the
setting based upon the lighting conditions and the range of the target. Our
apertures are all iris shutter style; you simply turn the front clockwise to
close it down and counter clockwise to open it up, and your point of impact
will not change.
