Field Expander Aids
Visual field expanding aids make images smaller to enable individuals with tunnel vision from Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and other visual disorders to enhance their peripheral field awareness to travel more safely and to locate objects beyond their normal field of view. Ocutech offers three Visual field expanding products– The Image Minifier, The Field Viewer and the Field Expander.
The Ocutech InstaMount Series offers a quick, convenient method to attach a monocular Galilean Bioptic to the front of an eyeglass lens. It is available as a 2.2x Telescope (TS) or a 0.5x Field Expander (FE). These can be prescribed either by permanently mounting the device to the uncoated eyeglass lens using prescriber-applied self-adhesive flanges, or attaching the telescope to the front of magnetic clip-on frames (The On & Off Bioptic) using either the self adhesive flanges or by drilling through the lens in the clip. This approach allows the telescope to be removed easily and conveniently when not needed. A convenient demonstrator clip makes positioning, demonstrating and ordering simple.
