Without these glasses and the light, I was struggling with tasks required for my job

I am a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner and use them for placing umbilical lines in premature infants.

As I have gotten older, I was having trouble putting in umbilical lines (a special IV catheter in the vein & arteries) and intubations (placing a breathing tube in the trachea) on premature infants. I am also a quilter. I found out about the lens from my dental hygienist and the next month just happened to go to a quilt show in Hampton, VA and you had a booth there. I tried them out and they are wonderful! Without these glasses and the light, I was struggling with tasks required for my job. The light is a must for anyone who purchases these also!

It's so nice to be comfortable and needlepoint without pain

I no longer have shoulder pain from holding the canvas up close to see the details and my ability to see the details is amazing. I can keep my threads equal and straight and I am able to see problems quickly and take care of them right away. It’s so nice to be comfortable and needlepoint without pain.

Thank You for such a great product. I love them.

I use them to solder resistors and capacitors every day

I just wanted to tell you that I am a satisfied customer of your telescopes. I use them here to solder resistors and capacitors every day that are 1.68mm x .89mm and with the telescopes they are large enough to see the solder connections that I make. So thank you for having a fine product.

My latest love affair!

MY LATEST LOVE AFFAIR! Craftoptics seriously rocks! I had no idea how much I WASN’T seeing when beading or quilt embellishing until I put these babies on! The DreamBeam is a must so you can bead anywhere! I even use it on the plane!!! I’ve seen the ads around for awhile but thought it was just a pricy new toy…NOT! Truthfully this has changed my beading quality because I can SEE everything!

More than the extra mile to ensure that I have a telescope which functions well for me

Jeff, Kate and Trish have gone far more than the extra mile to ensure that I have a telescope which functions well for me.  I bought my telescopes in 2012 but experienced eyestrain when wearing them.  About two weeks ago I contacted the office for a way to resolve this.  The +1.50 in the set I purchased was evidently too strong along with the telescopes.  Kate talked with me first followed by a conversation with Jeff.  They sent two sets of telescopes and said to try them both to see what worked best.  The +1.25 was still too strong although it did not cause as much eyestrain as the +1.50.  The miracle solution is a combination of plain lenses in the glasses part and the telescopes.  This combination allows me to work comfortably with 11/0 seed beads and I anticipate being able to also work with 15/0 while wearing my CraftOptics.  Thank you to Jeff, Kate and Trish.

Instead of switching among three sets of "readers," when I can find them, I now wear this one pair

Please tell Jeff thanks for his call and for re-making my Rx. The new telescopes are perfect. Instead of switching among three sets of “readers,” when I can find them, I now wear this one pair, comfortably, all day in my studio.

Light and very comfortable. I recommend them to all my fellow beaders. You won't be disappointed.

They are awesome. I tried several magnifiers without much success. I was going to order the short working distance but Jeff suggested I order the regular distance and they are perfect.They are light and very comfortable. I recommend them to all my fellow beaders. You won’t be disappointed. My next purchase will be to add the light.

I thought I had good ring closures before?

I thought I had good ring closures before?  I’m delighted by how much better they are when I can SEE them in such astonishing detail.  I love sharing these with my students to hear their surprised yelps and see their expressions of delight.  Pliers are my favorite tools, and these are a perfect complement

I received my order yesterday and I am pleased beyond words

I received my order yesterday and I am pleased beyond words. These glasses are astonishing. Just trying them at the show did not prepare me for these amazing glasses. I want you to know what a great asset Kate and her partnerwere at the Cincinnati show. They were very friendly, quite knowledgeable about the product and made sure that buyers’ questions and concerns were clearly understood. I just am without words at the marvelous product you have

I gotta tell you something, I ADORE my CraftOptics!

I gotta tell you something, I ADORE my CraftOptics! I’ve had them for about 9 months now. I also have the beam, though I don’t always use it. I am able to work longer and with less strain than ever before. I don’t hunch up over my beading table (yes, I am a bead weaver (aka thea fine)) the way I used to. As a result, my posture is better, my core is stronger, and my shoulders don’t hurt. AND I truly believe my creative juice has been enhanced!

I was able to complete a fairly large (for me) commissioned body of work in comfort and, frankly, I think, more rapidly than otherwise would have been possible!!!

And because I travel (but, sadly, not to B&B this year), the new case is absolutely perfect. It fits right into my bag along with my beading projects, keeps beam and glasses together (yeah, I’m one of those people….I lose things!!).

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for a magnificent product, for a great travel case and, ABOVE ALL, for the ongoing support and help to ensure that I’m happy, happy, happy with your wonderful product. AND I AM!!!
