We frequently hear from customers who tell us they feel much lighter than they expected. The complete set of glasses and telescopes weighs only 48 grams with a standard bifocal installed in the frames. The DreamBeam weighs only 7 grams (about the weight of a quarter). Together, they weigh up to 40% less than similar surgical systems. In addition, the frame is titanium with spring hinges and it has a saddle style nosepad which all combine to distribute the weight evenly. Finally, a set of flexible Chums eyewear retainers is included with your purchase. This can be adjusted for additional comfort.
