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
