Default Blurry Pins, HELP!

First...this is only my third year bow hunting.
I thought this was something everyone deals with and that's just the way it is. When I am focused on my target (the further, the worse) my pins are really blurry (starburst/doubling). 20 and 30 yards is manageable. 40 is pushing it, and beyond that, forget about it. Asking around and doing some research online, I'm still not sure if it is an equipment issue, or my eyes. I do wear contacts. I have no trouble seeing/reading up close (no reading glasses)

27" draw length.
.019 pin size

Is my peep too small?
Is my sight too close?
Does it have to do with the contacts?
Would a verifier help even if I don't have issues seeing up close?

Anyone else have this issue? How did you correct it?
Thanks!

The human eye cannot focus on 2 separate distances st the same time. Its everybody's problem. One thing that might help a little is green and yellow pins instead of red.

As said above the human eye can only focus on one distance at a time. Basically toggle back and forth but focus more on the target and you will be able to see your pin on the target. Just like anything else it takes some getting use to.

What I've noticed what that helps me when i shoot past 40 and i'm using a standard block target is put a orange Gatorade cap on target by poking a small screw into cap this allows me to see it better maybe because its 3D not sure.. If you hit the nail/screw at 40yrds props to you LOL..

Get a peep verifer. It really cleared up my pins.

I had the same problem when I was wearing glasses and I got a verifier, problem solved. Now that I'm wearing contacts, everything past 40 is blurry through it.... IDK what to do

This^^^ or maybe use a clarifier, it depends on your eyes.

I think this is the way it goes.......

Clarifier helps clear up the target.
Verifier helps with the pins.

Having serious trouble with contacts and dry eyes... are you focusing on your site and then finding your deer or looking at the deer through the site and then raising your pin to target. for me i learned to focus on the deer in my peep and then raise the pin to my kill spot. hopefully I explained that well and it helps.

I wear contacts and had trouble focusing on my pins at any distance. I swapped over to a single pin adjustable sight and man idk what took me so long to swap over. Made a world of difference.
