Mueller scope question

A Mueller rifle scope "101" question.
What does "side focus" mean, relative to Mueller rifle copes?

Side focus refers to the scope having a third turret on the left side of the turret housing that controls the parallax adjustment. It works the same as an adjustable objective, but now in the form of a third turret. I find that I like it better when I can keep your eye behind the scope and adjust the parallax setting.
