Pistol sights

As I age my close up sight is getting worse and worse, to the point now that I can't clearly see the sights on my pistols. I wanted to see if any you have already been down this path and what you may have added to your pistol(s) to help. Is a laser sight my only choice or are there other options?

Thanks

Have you looked into night sights? Some have a very distinctive white dots that are easy to see.

Another option is to paint a white dot on your existing sights.

I have refitted some of my pistols with sights trimmed in white, works great.

On my glock, I have night sights and a laser. Works great.

I shot a friends Glock with the white trimmed sights. After shooting it, I realized how much trouble I had seeing my sights. If I use my reading glasses I can see the sights great, just can't see the target then...

Tru-glo fiber optic sights are always s good choice.

Are you looking for a target oriented sight to shoot or something for a conceal carry gun ?

Something of a compromise between the two would be optimal.

Laser? Sure, if you want to become a target. Glow in the dark? https://images.search.yahoo.com/imag...&hsimp=yhs-001
