AC not as cold, 1996 Ranger 2.3L

Today I noticed that the air conditioner is not blowing as cold as it
normally does. It is the R134
refrigerant type. How do I know if it has a proper "charge"? The
older systems had a sight glass that was handy.
How do I add more if needed? Same as the older Freon types?

Thanks !

A set of gauges to do it right. Some of the refill kits come with a
gauge so you can at least measure the low side.

You need a set of gauges for starters to determine the hi and low
pressures relative to ambient air temp and humidity.
