Most common option:
If you wear progressive lenses, bifocals or trifocals, you will be joining a large majority of CraftOptics customers who do the same. We install your prescription as a bifocal, which provides a large near correction. When you flip the telescopes up and look down at your work, you will see through your near correction as you normally do. When the telescopes are in the down position, you will be able to see over them through your distance correction (to watch TV, for example). This configuration is by far the most common.
NOTE: The price for your set of CraftOptics is fixed and includes any prescription, whether it is a bifocal, single vision or reader. There is no additional charge based on your prescription.
Some people install their near correction in the entire frame if they only wish to see close up while working (when they glance above the telescopes to look around their work area). Some bead artists and bench jewelers choose this option. In some cases, we install the intermediate correction in the upper part of the frame if all the user needs is their intermediate correction when looking over the telescopes while in the down position (they only need to see within arms length/computer distance). Please call us if you would like assistance in determining which option will best suit your needs.
