There should be a vision test to get a hunting license. Most people do not realize how poorly they see, especially in low light.


As a Sports Vision member of the American Optometric Association.....My advice for hunters is to ensure that they are seeing as clearly as possible before pointing their gun at anything....I have had patients that claim to see just fine and when I ask them to read the chart, they struggle to see The Big E (20/400 vision) even with their "current eyeglasses." Like any sport, seeing as clear as possible provides a competitive edge, because if you can't see, you lose that ability to perform 100% of your ability when things get tense. Clear, comfortable vision allows the hunter the confidence and ability to do what they need to do when the excitement of a deer walking in sight occurs. So, even though there are no vision requirement for a hunting license, getting an eye exam before you point your gun at something is probably a good idea.
