    I mght not like what i see .Will be a problem with me though as i have to wear glasses to drive or watch tv.
    As i gathered from reading this topic their is quiet a few peope who are colourblind in some way so why is everything these days being steered towards colour coding on machine buttons,devices and even follow the whatever coloured line to this or that department.I even have problems paying for my shopping by card,please press the green enter button to finalise your purchase,what green enter button? Whatever happened to the use of language instead of everything being colour directed and why is it not in this day and age classed as a disability if everything is going that way?
    That's my rant over,going to make a cup of coffee now because it says coffee on the tub and not gravy,made that mistake a few times

    Im encouraged to see my eye doctor as soon as possible

    This August I turn 50, (I only have one eye and I see my eye specialist regularly)
    and given that I managed to make it all the way though my life to 50 without this being of any issue (including army service) then I don't see it being one of major importance for what little time remains of my life,,,,

    So I don't think I'll bother my arse
    Sorry to here that your one good eye Scott is colour blind to a point.

    As you say though being colourblind is not one of major importance for you but you could easily live another 50 years or more for all you know so I wouldn't say "what little time remains of my life". At least I hope you live another 50 years or more and continue to enjoy shooting.

    My nephew failed his medical to get in the RAF because he was colour blind, he ended up working on their planes as a civilian.

    Yes I'm with GMballistic, age don't mean anything, having a wicked sense of humour keep you going, or like me just being dull.
