    Rifle Scopes General scope terminology question

    Why do scope companies call their side parallax adjustment scopes "side focus" scopes? Would it not be more accurate (pun intended!) for them to be called side parallax adjustment? Or is it just marketing to help the general consumer? Edit: I completely understand what parallax is....
