Adjusting eye focus on a scope

My scope on my deer rifle is still set up for my younger eyes. 

I now wear glasses for reading, up close, etc. 

Is there focus adjustment for individual eyes? I don't wear glasses out hunting. 

The scope is a Leupold VX II from the early 90's. Thanks

The focus on most scopes if for the reticles.  You look through it and adjust the ring so the crosshairs are in the sharpest focus...

VX-2 should have a focal adjustment near the eyepiece. You would typically need to adjust focus as magnification is adjusted up or down.

VX-2 does not have a parallax adjustment.

I've done some homework on this and the adjustment is quite simple. There is much info online and on Youtube. I recommend Youtube -Understanding parallax with Leupold. Plenty of good info on how a scope works here. Understanding the difference between shooting targets and moving game. Just an old carpenter wanting to get it right the 1st time!

I'm having the same problem.  When I dial up the power it's like the view circle is shrinking  . If my eye is closer it stays the same . I might be able to move the mounts back a little bit .
