I have a pair of older eyes also and have problems keeping track of it at times, especially against a milky sky. I have done some tests of visibility enhancements and have concluded that the best is to just paint the bottom of the wing a solid dark color. My eyes cannot discriminate stripes and high-vis colors at a distance.

Here is a source for prismatic tape that I have used on the leading edge of the wings. It is pretty good at catching the sun and giving a glint.
