I don't see many 'Old Geezers' with troubled eyes at those competitions anyway. Perhaps you're comparing apples with oranges, I have Night Fision on my pistols.You'll never see any stupid crap like that in any organized competition, USPSA/Steel Challenge/IDPA/multi gun. Predominantly black on black, or fiber optic front with black rear.
Other than that, dot's for Open and Carry Optics Divisions.
The old geezers like Rob Leatham and Ken Hackathorn are now using red dots and they swear by them. Rob Leatham is 61 and Ken Hackathorn is 75. Two of the best living pistol shooters and they've both benefited from using red dots now that their sight and dexterity are failing.
