Dr. Norman Wong Articles as posted to the Bullseye List (plus*)


Camp Perry National Matches - 2004
Dr. Wong shows a pretty fine .45 target

Norman Wong, O.D., has been kind enough to provide several articles and posts regarding vision, to the Bullseye Shooting Community, through the avenue known as the Bullseye-L Internet Forum. Because the older archives are no longer available and to provide a consolidated source, some of his topics have been placed here.

[Note: To the right is a picture of Dr. Wong's shooting success at the 2004 National Matches. There's also a Team picture from his Navy days at the bottom of this page.]

Onward to his words of wisdom. Thanks Dr. Wong!

    [Ed's Note: Found below is a picture of Dr. Wong with his Navy Pistol Team shortly before his separation in 1977 and a shooting break of 25 years. He started shooting again in 2003 with his first 2700 match in 2004. It didn't take him long to move back to the top making the President's Hundred in both 2004 and 2005 at the Camp Perry National Trophy Matches. (I like the looks of that target behind ENC Gunsett's left shoulder - Lt. Wong's point, perhaps?)]
