"I am absolutely delighted with the CraftOptics!"

I am absolutely delighted with the CraftOptics!  I just finished binding a quilt using the CraftOptics and light.  It was so much better than the magnifier visor I had been using previously.  I was able to work on the binding for longer periods of time because there was no longer any straining on my eyes or my neck.

"I am THRILLED with how I can see with these!"

I am THRILLED with how I can see with these. The glasses part have my own prescription in them, bifocals and all.  And once I plop the telescopes down on top of the lenses and turn on the light – WOW!  I’m loving mine! 20161003_211008

I told someone earlier today when she asked about them that we have to do what we have to do to be able to do what we love to do for as long as we can do it!  And I need to be able to see close, and see clearly without straining my eyes during hours of needlework time.

I love my CraftOptics with the DreamBeam for all of my fine needlework

“I love my CraftOptics with the DreamBeam for all of my fine needlework. I use them at home, and for travel too.
I have chronic dry eye syndrome, and needed to order them to minimize eye strain. When I ordered my CraftOptics lenses, I asked to have my receipt written up with my Ophthalmologist’s prescription, so that I can claim them as a medical expenses for income tax purposes.
They are worth the investment!!”

"My CraftOptics glasses were a lifesaver for me. I'd go nuts without my handicrafts."

I have a pair of these! I have very severe astigmatism and Macular Degeneration. CraftOptics worked with my optometrist to get me something that would let me continue knitting, doing embroidery and making lino-prints without stabbing or cutting myself. I love them so much. My CraftOptics glasses were a lifesaver for me. I’d go nuts without my handicrafts.

There is really nothing better for looking at the details of mountings of works of art on paper.

2016 Update: “You spoke to my wife at the quilting expo last weekend. It reminded me to let you know how much I value your telescopes. I’m not sure how long I’ve had them: a decade? longer? I use them regularly, because there is really nothing better for looking at the details of mountings of works of art on paper. They let me see into narrow spaces clearly—a crucial first step in deciding whether a mounting needs to be replaced—and decide how to go about replacing it.”

Love this product. Couldn't be happier!

“I am attaching a picture of me using my CraftOptics glasses. Saying that I LOVE them doesn’t cover it but I do. I have used them to rip things out but decided not to take a picture of that so, instead, I am sending you one of me sewing on a baby quilt. Love this product – couldn’t be happier.”
