    tl;dr I have astigmatism and my eye doctor suggested I should try the Vortex Spitfire AR. So I need your opinions.
    I received my aimpoint pro this past Thursday and noticed the red dot was not symmetrical. It had little jaggies going all around the dot. I tried adjusting the brightness down and it still had the same result. I figured maybe I got a defective unit. So I went to my LGS on Saturday to try out another aimpoint and it looked the same.
    The first thing the sales guy asked me was if I had astigmatism. I told him I had my eyes checked back in November and my Ophthalmologist said everything was fine. We checked out a few different optics in my price range and they all had the same jaggies to some degree. So this must have creeped up after my last eye appointment.
    Today I went to see my eye doctor and she confirmed the astigmatism in both of my eyes. She said it’s fairly common and asked me how I noticed it. So I told her.
    She went on to explain a bunch of stuff. Then said I should check out the Vortex sight. I jokingly asked if she was a Vortex rep part timing as an eye doctor. She smiled and said no. So that was basically my day.
    Sorry for the yawn fest guys. Thanks for any help you can provide.
