"I wish I hadn't waited so long to get them!"

I must tell you, I even find ripping out stitches in my sewing to be much easier with my CraftOptics and Dream Beam! I can do a bunch of my hobbies more easily now. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to get them!

"They really revolutionized the way I work and I can't even believe I ever managed without them!!"

Not only is the product wonderful, but the customer service is excellent and very personal!! I recently sent mine in for a prescription upgrade and had to go back to working without them while waiting for the upgrade. Ugh!!!!! I can’t WAIT to get them back…..they really revolutionized the way I work and I can’t even believe I ever managed without them!!

Follow up: By the way I got them back SO fast, and the service I received was exceptional! Great product, great service, you really can’t beat that!

"They are an investment you will NOT regret!"

I can only compare my initial feelings of these glasses to what it must have been like for Charlie to enter Willie Wonka’s Chocolate factory and discover that everything in the candy garden was edible!  Yes, it was that surreal!

"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 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.”
