    I've seen some safety glasses with bifocals but cheap and have a well defined hard transition.
    Anyone know of a brand that has a smooth transition?

    GO!

    Don't remember where I saw the ad but I know someone out there is making glasses like you want...puts front sight back in focus but still gives good distance vision.
    google is your friend

    I have looked for the same. I would call them progressive reading glasses. I do not think that anyone make generic ones. I believe that pupil distance is critical in a pair that do not strain your eyes. There are several online glasses sites that make inexpensive progressive readers but you will need a prescription.

    I shoot Action pistol matches and what I have found works best is a + 1.00 contact in my right eye. I can still see clearly in the distance with my left eye and I can just get the front sight in focus.

    you might also try some shooting forums...I know I recently saw an ad or a thread where they were talking about a company making glasses specifically for shooters to put front sight in focus.

    That's what I need.
    I don't really use the rear, just front and target with pistols.
    I can see out yonder but that front sight is getting smaller and smaller.
    Fiber optic front helps and what I'm using now on my EDC.

    Tritium is just a blurr now even with the rear blacked out.

    I can still see my older 22 rifle sights but all those oldies have a high polish silver bead on front and black rear.

    I'll check some shooting forums out
