OCUTECH BIOPTICS

What are bioptic telescopes? How do they help?

Bioptic telescopes are like miniature binoculars that help the visually impaired see more clearly.

They are attached to regular eyeglasses and can be prescribed for one or both eyes. Just like binoculars, they make images larger and hence easier to see. Users say that everything looks closer—which is exactly right, however the benefit is that it enables the user to see much further away. For example, if an individual can only see clearly to 5 feet away, a 4 power Ocutech bioptic will let them see 20 feet away!

They are ideal for individuals with reduced visual acuity (low vision) between 20/60 to 20/300 (6/18 to 6/90) and from disorders including; Macular Degeneration, Albinism, Stargardt’s Disease, Optic Atrophy, Nystagmus and many other visual conditions.

Bioptic telescopes are available in a range of powers and in two optical designs– Galilean and Keplerian. Generally Galilean telescopes are presribed in lower powers, while Keplerian designs are preferred for higher powers due to their wider field of view.  Learn more about Galilean and Keplerian telescopes.
