Well in a single l don't , I look for runway markings or flare path. I mentioned the papi because it surprised me how they are not as good as the old twin Vasi,, and only four lights on hls not 32 across the bar, dramatic reduction in visual slope assistance from way out at ten miles on a straight in approach.
