Why improve distance vision?
What can Ocutech Bioptics help me do?
Seeing at a distance
Ocutech Bioptics are especially helpful for viewing television, movies and theater, seeing faces, signs, blackboards in school, shopping, and traveling. Ocutech wearers have even used their bioptics to hike, golf, bowl, paint, fish, drive tractors and mow the lawn. Most states in the U.S. and some countries will license eligible visually impaired individuals to drive while using a bioptic telescope.
Seeing at near
Bioptics can also help you to see at near and mid-range distances. By using Ocutech’s Falcon Autofocus Bioptic – the world’s only self-focusing bioptic – or by focusing manually or using near-focus attachments for the SightScope, Ocutech bioptics can provide easy-to-use magnification to help you see board and card games, read the computer, play music, as well as many other activities.
