If you get even older than the "more difficult" stage, you might get to where it's impossible. Even so, your optometrist can get you a set of glasses specifically for the distance from your eyes to the front sight. Problem solved.
If I get to do this again, I'll get bi-focals, mostly as described above, but also with some part of the lenses designed for distance viewing, so I can look at the target afterwards and see where the bullet hit. I'd also like to take the pair of glasses I already had made up, and replace the lens for the left eye with a prescription for distance viewing, since I only shoot with my right eye. Then I can shoot as I do now, and use my left eye to look at the target. (My eyes don't work together properly, so I can switch from one to the other easily - not sure if others can do that.... if they have good stereo vision, which I don't, it might not be so easy.)
Back to the discussion - if you're shooting at say, 15 yards, and your sight radius is one inch, you might as well not even be using the sights. If your sight radius was 15 yards, with the end of the gun right in front of the target, you'd shoot bullseyes every time. :-) My revolvers range from 2.5" to 10 5/8", and if the only consideration is accuracy, for me, the longer the gun, the better I do.
