    Have been looking at holographic sights lately. The Bushnell and the EOTech have a weird "hazy" or "fuzzy" looking outer ring on the retical. It is obvious that it was designed to be this way and not just poorly executed. The inner dot is crystal clear.

    Why the fuzzy outer ring? What does this do for the shooter?

    The EOTech's reticle is produced by coherent laser light, one side effect is the reticle appears "grainy". If your eyes are not 20/20 or if you have an uncorrected astigmatism the entire reticle will appear blurry.

    Make sure that you are focusing on the target and not the reticle itself. Also try a lower power setting.

    Yeah, what Chris from SWFA said. Turning down the intensity will usually sharpen the image. The intensity settings will be different depending on the surrounding light. The EOTech also will reset to the middle of its intensity range every time you turn it off/on so more than likely, you will have to readjust it every time you shoot with it.

    I just got a new one today in the mail and was kinda upset that it was so fuzzy.

    But, I read more posts about it being better if U look thru it at something far away, and stare at the object instead of the reticle. That has seemed to help. I also have 2 pairs of glasses. 1 makes the eotech seem a bit clearer.

    I used one on Sunday and had no issues with it. So, I will try mine tomorrow in the sun to duplicate my use on Sunday, and see if that helps...

    I also plan to go to a local shop tomorrow evening that carries them, and see if I can compare mine to theirs...
