Ocutech bioptic telescope systems are indicated for individuals with reduced central vision where visual acuity is responsive to magnification. Individuals with vision of 20/300 and better have benefited from Ocutech devices.
Diagnoses responsive to telescopic low vision aids include macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, Stargardt’s Disease, Hereditary macular degeneration, albinism, high myopia, nystagmus, coloboma, optic atrophy, macula holes, achromatopsia, rod/cone dystrophies, as well as many other vision disorders.
All Ocutech VES bioptics provide internal Rx correction for a large range of spherical refractive errors (consult Product Comparison Chart for full ranges) and usually do not require additional eyepiece corrections.
For VES systems eyepiece corrections should be considered for spherical refractive errors beyond +/-12D or 3D cylinder.
SightScope Systems do not requires eyepiece corrections as the telescopes are positioned in front of the carrier lenses.

It is preferable to prescribe to the dominant eye (even if it is the poorer seeing eye) so long as you can achieve the acuity goal you seek through the telescope. If the non-dominant eye is the significantly better seeing eye, it may be necessary to at least partially occlude the dominant eye to aid sighting through the telescope.
