Read Personal Stories from Ocutech Wearers

Bioptics have changed their lives!
We tried several aids for our son and even demonstrated the electronic virtual reality glasses, but they were bulky, too expensive and he didn’t like wearing them! Ocutech provided a perfect solution for our 12 year old with low vision. They are lightweight, his friends can see his eyes, and more importantly he can see his teacher and the board in the front of the classroom. He might even be able to drive with them one day! Thanks Ocutech! You’ve brightened our lives!Cynthia Merritt

I’ve been very happy with the SightScope and patient acceptance is excellent. I also want to commend your team on customer service … it’s outstanding.

Yesterday I dispensed the Sport bioptics to two brothers.  It went very well.  One actually read 20/20, the other 20/40+.  I’ve got lots of pictures and a short video that will show up on social media soon.

Thanks again to Ocutech for all your help.  I think that we have helped two very deserving young men with bright futures ahead of them.  These bioptics may be life changing and open doors not otherwise possible.

I used my sightscope when I was taking my review for the real estate brokers licensure board exam. The exam was held last February 2016, and luckily I passed. 🙂

I picked up the Ocutech glasses today.  So far I am very happy with them.  They work well for reading printed material and small text on the TV.  The optics have a nice high contrast (deep blacks) and the image is really sharp.  They are also light weight enough and out of the way enough I can forget they are on.  I stopped at Panera on the way home.  They have the menu posted behind the counter.  I can read the main menu items but not the smaller font comments below the items.  The Ocutech glasses work really well for reading my cell phone screen without having to zoom.

Yes I am using the Ocutech to see my cell phone through the scope.  The Ocutech can focus down to about 7″.  I am using it with the cell phone at about 20″ away.

I was concerned tipping my head down to read for long periods might be a problem but so far it is fairly comfortable.  I normally use +14 diopter COIL reading glasses and hold the phone about 3 inches away to use my cell phone but I still often have to use the zoom feature on the phone to read smaller text.  With the Ocutech scope I can have the phone at about 20″ away and read even small text on the phone with no issue (nice and clear).  My wife was impressed and said it made me look farsighted with the phone so far away.  It is working out really well.

I prefer the Ocutech Mini as a bioptic for driving because it combines the wide field of a Keplerian with the small physical dimensions that makes the transition to and from the carrier easier. The patients like it for being less conspicuous than other telescopes.

Pickens Sentinel
By D. C. Moody –

Thanks to a technological advance by a company in Chapel Hill, N.C., Gail Black has found a new lease on life.

For two weeks now Black has been using the Ocutech Sport, a futuristic looking piece of equipment that attaches to the frames of glasses, and she is ready to go back to the life she enjoyed before that March day five years ago.

“It feels absolutely amazing! It felt like an absolute miracle because it was miraculous I could see clearly,” she says of the day she first used the Ocutech. “Just to be able to see scenery, the highway, the signs, and know where I was that day driving back from Asheville was a miracle to me. I can see again and to know who I am talking to is absolutely wonderful.
