Astigmatism and New Sights for my 26/43?

4102 32
So I have a pretty decent astigmatism in both eyes, which makes trying to use 3 dot sights a nightmare, especially if shooting both eyes open.

Looking for some night sights to install on my 26 & 43 that will allow quick target acquisition. Still would like to be able to maintain some accuracy, not just minute of pizza pan lol.

Anybody in the same boat and found any good solutions? Any input is greatly appreciated!

I wound up putting on a set of Ameriglo CAP sights. However, the front sight post fits extremely loose. I emailed them and have not received a reply after 3 days. Not real satisfied at this moment.

CAP sight update: So, I received my replacement front sight about a week or so after contacting Ameriglo.

Installed the new front sight today....and it was just as loose as the original one. Still have to manually look and center the front sight before tightening to avoid it pointing off a few degrees.

Wondering if it is just my slide, I pulled out my wife's brand new G43. Factory front sight was super tight. Installed the CAP front sight, and it was loose in the 43 too. Did some searching, and it appears others have had the same issue even with their replacement sights.

Also, I compared the sights side by side with the paint application. Gave them both the same light exposure from the flashlight on my phone at the same time and then put them side by side. The new one glowed significantly brighter than the original one.

I still need to go put a couple hundred rounds through my 26 to see if the sight remains in place or not.

So, overall, I believe this will be my first and last set of Ameriglo sights. Maybe being too picky, but I just don't think that front sight should wiggle around like this.
