What are CraftOptics Magnifying Telescopes & DreamBeam? Jeff explains.
If you have never seen CraftOptics in person, this new video is for you! Watch Jeff walk you through how CraftOptics Magnifying Telescopes and CraftOptics DreamBeam work together to help you see with laser focus like you did when you were a kid. He’ll show you how they will help you see amazing detail while allowing you to perform your craft at an upright, comfortable, ergonomic working position.
What prescription should be installed in my frames? What if I wear progressive lenses?
CraftOptics Telescopes work WITH whatever correction you wear, be it a prescription or just readers. So, we install your normal prescription or reader into the frames. If you wear progressives, we install that same correction but as a bifocal for optimal clarity, as Jeff explains. This way, when you look above the telescopes or flip them up, you can see as you normally do!
If you wear only readers, we install that reading correction in the frames.

New CraftOptics owners--watch this! Common errors and quick tips.
Get set up the right way for maximum delight!
Attach the light properly to the telescopes (put the wire behind you – don’t let the it hang).
Wear the glasses all the way up–don’t slide them down your nose like readers.
Avoid sitting too close to your work. The magnifying telescopes are designed to work at a certain distance. We all have the habit of leaning closer to our work. When wearing CraftOptics, this has a negative effect on clarity. If things don’t look right, sit back a bit instead of leaning in.
Look ABOVE the telescopes when grabbing tools, etc. Don’t look through the telescopes to search around your work area.
This video shows you how to set up the DreamBeam to make sure the light wire stays out of your way. HINT: wear the Chums eyewear retainer and put the wire BEHIND you, clipping it to your shirt to keep it completely out of your way!

A properly adjusted nosepad will make all the difference in making your CraftOptics Magnifying Telescopes comfortable. Most people do the exact opposite of what you want–they squeeze the nosepads together. With CraftOptics, you want to widen them a bit so the frames “hang” on the bridge of your nose.
