]The other argument that the cross hairs are being projected directly onto
]retina being better than looking through a pair of goggles, shades etc
]doesn't hold true, as a person today wearing glasses, or goggles etc can
]see just as well as a person without.

>Nope. Just doesn't work. Buddy, you evidently have never required
corrective lenses in your life. If you get used to contacts, and you suddenly
have to switch to glasses, you'd be surprised at the difference. In addition
to the fact that a lot, if not all of your peripheral vision is gone, you also
have to deal with the fact that your eyes are forced to choose a new focus-point
in order to assimilate proper vision. The idea is to differenciate between
having things move in front of your eyes, like a video game, or like a contact.

>In other words; yes, they can see as well. But, they cannot USE what
they see as effectively. Try it out by putting a dot of something on your
contact, or on your glasses lens, and see how easy it is to put the dot on
