Do regular reflex sights blur on you? You may have astigmatism…and the SLx will help!

Whether you’re interested in self-defense, hunting or competing, one thing is always true: You can’t shoot it if you can’t see it. If you have astigmatism, reflex sights can present a real challenge. If regular reflex sights blur on you, or if you notice that it’s taking you longer to acquire that good sight picture than it should, Primary Arms Optics‘ SLx 1X Prism reflex sight can help. Already one of Primary Arms’ best-loved optics, the SLx 1x Prism sight now offers a green illuminated reticle to make life even easier for shooters with astigmatism.

### Do I have astigmatism?

If you’re not familiar with astigmatism, the 10-cent explanation is that one of your eyes sees better than the other. It’s not the same thing as eye dominance. Many ophthalmologists won’t bother fixing it if your case is mild, and most of the time you won’t notice…unless, of course, you’re trying to focus on an illuminated dot.  has just released the latest iteration of its popular SLx 1x Prism, now featuring a green-illuminated etched reticle.

### Why green?

Well, that relates to another secret of human vision: We see green better in daylight than any other color, and it stays nice and visible after dark. The green illumination stands out against warm-colored environments, for example, a desert. Red reticles remain a prominent choice in heavily-vegetated areas where red offers greater contrast. Both color options come with 11 brightness settings and up to 3,000 hours of battery life on medium settings with a standard CR2032 battery.
