Good for you. I did the same and for the same reason. In my 50's and eyes are going. I got the CORE 4.25 and put an RMR on it and a light. Night sights would not work for my eyes. Still getting used to finding the dot.

Don't look for the dot, that is a bad habit to get into.

Practice 20 draw strokes a day, either from your holster or low ready.

If the dot is not "there" stop and start over.
You need to get muscle memory built until the dot is just there every time.

If you can't get it in a few days, put the gun down and use a "finger gun". As you draw the finger gun, pay attention to where the finger barrel is pointed. After you get that to where you can " ring the doorbell " with the finger barrel, move back to the gun.

Be patient it might take a week or two to learn the new process.

The Trijicon RMR is 100% made in Wixom MI, The Delta Point Pro comes from Oregon (to the best if my knowledge is all made there), the rest are chinese.

Since our country is having so many issues caused by the Chinese virus, if you care even a little bit about the country, buy the non Chinese sights.

Wixom is 3 miles from me . But I can’t see pay as much for the red dot as the gun .
venom ( vortex ) is not made in China . But yes I agree with you .

A: Riflescopes: the Razor AMG line is made in the US, the Razor HD line is made in Japan, the Viper and Diamondback lines are made in the Philippines, all other riflescopes are made in China. Red dots and prism scopes: the Venom line is made in the Philippines, all other red dots and all prism scopes are made in China.

I stand corrected.

I was told by a vortex employee a couple years ago during a phone call that their red dots and prism scopes were from China.

Actually that is what I am doing. You are 100% correct. It has actually helped me get on target much faster just by muscle memory.
