What if I take my glasses off when I want to see details?

Some customers tell us they take off their glasses to see their close work. Most take off their glasses because they have progressive lenses and the near correction area is so small it doesn’t work well for detail work. Others who do this tell us they see well but have to hunch way over because in order to do so, they have to sit very close to their work to see it.  So, if you need a prescription but don’t have it installed in the CraftOptics frames, you will not be positioned at a comfortable working distance. Installing your complete prescription gives you a very large near correction area, and ensures you will eliminate eye strain and sit in much more comfortable working position.

CraftOptics Telescopes are an enhancement to your corrected vision, not a replacement for it. Our on-staff optician will gladly guide you through the options if you have any questions.
