It shouldn't change with/without glasses. I shoot 3 3/4" both ways. I"m guessing most will be 4 1/2" or more though.

I shoot with may glasses on. If your looking over your glasses,to me it sounds like peep height may be off (low). Just a guess. String angle comes in to play also. My bows a.t.a. is 35" and with a 31"dl it's not that sharp of an angle. I'm thinking from my loop to my peep is 6".

Agree with or without doesn't matter. If you have to adjust your head and sight picture with glasses then you do not have the peep correctly set to begin with. If you wear progressive bifocals then this becomes very critical that the peep is set very correctly so your not looking through the bifocal, which with progressives takes up the bottom half of the lense from side to side.
By the way there is no measuerment to set the height at as each bow and each person is different.

One of the biggest factors in peep height is "how long your neck is" along with "draw length", "anchor point", and "ATA of the bow" --- which all together equates to "everyone will be a little different".

Hi, here is my two cents worth of info.

Two of our club members also use glasses. When shooting with the bow and looking in the corner of the glasses everything is blurred. Especially the frontsight. They found a peep with a lens insert with about 3 lenses of different magnification. They swear by it. Talk to your local shop to see if they can assist you.

Changing your peep height will change your form, won't it?

It may be that what needs changing is your glasses. I shoot with un-fashionably large lensed glasses. Almost aviator style, so that I don't have peep issues.

Best of luck to you.
