These types of sights feature an illuminated “red dot” that serves as accurate aim point for the operator. A red dot sight is primarily meant for targets within 100 yards, but it can also work for longer ranges.

The red-dot sight is often known as a “reflex” sight, which is a term stemming from the fact that red dots rely on non-magnifying reflectors to display the red dot.
