Everything I could have hoped for! And, I’m an engineer!

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.
