FDTS Glasses

Full Diameter Telescopes (Galilean Telescopes) are designed to see things at a distance while being stationary. Using while mobile is not practical, since walking with Full Diameter Telescopes would be similar to walking while looking through a pair of binoculars. These telescopes are especially suited for such tasks as watching T.V., going to the theater, enjoying sporting events, or seeing faces across the room – anything that can be done while the person is stationary. An added reading-cap may be used to allow the person wearing the glasses to see things up close such as using a computer, playing cards, reading, etc. Overall, these are a very versatile pair of glasses that can improve a person’s vision up to 3 times or more.

Bioptic Glasses

Bioptic Telescopic Glasses provide the person with the benefits of a telescopic system while still maintaining mobility. Mounted high in the carrier lens, the telescope is “out of the way” while the patient is moving about or doing general work, but it is always available for distance viewing. These have many uses, especially when watching TV, enjoying sporting events, better vision for walking, driving a golf cart and driving when the person already meets the minimum requirements of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Almost any typical eyeglass prescription may be easily incorporated including bifocals! When used outdoors the lenses may be made in Transitions (lenses that darken when outdoors) or any other tint.

Clearimage Microscopic Glasses

Clear Image Microscope Glasses are two high powered, coated lenses “piggybacked” one behind the other. This “doublet” lens is designed to create a magnified, crystal clear, edge-to-edge image. The lens eliminates the aberrations and “pincushion” effect of a single high-powered lens. In addition to these benefits, the patient’s eyeglass prescription is ground into the rear lens to account for refractive conditions like myopia (near-sighted), hyperopia (far-sighted), and astigmatism. By combining high powered magnification, edge-to-edge clarity, and refractive prescription in one pair of glasses, patients can achieve amazing results in reading smaller print than previously thought possible!

E-Scoop Glasses

Now there is new hope for people whose vision has been compromised by age-related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), Glaucoma and Diabetic Retinopathy.

E-Scoop® glasses were developed to bridge the gap between standard eyeglasses and eyeglass mounted telescopes. Whether your difficulty be night driving, bright light, sunlight, or simply seeing clearly in the distance, the E-Scoop® lens placed over a standard eyeglass prescription can help you see better.

Field Expanding Glasses

Hemianopsia is a debilitating visual condition that affects roughly 1 in 3 stroke patients. To the patient, it’s as if one side of their visual field simply disappears.

To a layperson, this is hard to imagine, and even harder to explain. Patients with hemianopia have two major complaints related to this devastating condition: it’s hard to read, and it’s hard to get around without bumping into things (mobility). The Peli Lens™ is designed specifically to help with mobility. The Peli Lens uses high powered prisms placed in the peripheral vision to expand a Hemianopic patient’s awareness of their blind side by over 30 degrees when using the The Peli Lens™.

There is also patented oblique configuration available that may make it possible to drive. However, driving depends on your state’s laws.
