My bioptic helped me a lot in work, especially with presentations. My job involves data analysis so I am exposed to a massive amount of data that requires sophisticated visual skills to master- with the help of my Ocutech bioptic, I was able to perform my tasks without a problem.

Thanks to a technological advance by a company in Chapel Hill, N.C., Gail Black has found a new lease on life.
For two weeks now Black has been using the Ocutech Sport, a futuristic looking piece of equipment that attaches to the frames of glasses, and she is ready to go back to the life she enjoyed before that March day five years ago.
“It feels absolutely amazing! It felt like an absolute miracle because it was miraculous I could see clearly,” she says of the day she first used the Ocutech. “Just to be able to see scenery, the highway, the signs, and know where I was that day driving back from Asheville was a miracle to me. I can see again and to know who I am talking to is absolutely wonderful.

My daughter was born with albinism which caused her to be legally blind. Her best “corrected” (with glasses) vision was 20/200. Although she attended public school, she just couldn’t see anything in the classroom unless it was a couple of inches from her face. When she was entering the 5th grade we found out about Ocutech and the Bioptic Lenses. When she returned to school after the Christmas break that year, she was a new student!!! Her grades went from C’s to A’s and her enthusiasm for learning shot through the roof!! She’s finishing the 7th grade and is in the academically gifted program at her school. My daughter loves the vision that the Bioptic Lenses bring to her. She’s 13 years old and wishes she didn’t need to wear something this big on her face but the vision that she has with these glasses is worth the price of wearing them. Thank you so much…!

I still get a lump in my throat when I see someone across the room that I haven’t seen in years.

It has helped me when reading/watching the following:
A. Video presentation
B. Road/public/commercial signs
C. Far distance watching (movies and nature seeing)

I prefer the Ocutech Mini as a bioptic for driving because it combines the wide field of a Keplerian with the small physical dimensions that makes the transition to and from the carrier easier. The patients like it for being less conspicuous than other telescopes.

I just wanted to tell you I spent the weekend auditioning for a new singing show on NBC called “The Voice”. I was wearing my pink VES Sport in the line of thousands of auditioners and was the talk of the day! I got to tell hundreds of people all about Ocutech and what it does to help me as people would stop me and ask (or stare). Then, after my audition, a producer took me aside and had me do an on camera interview wearing the bioptics. (Too bad I found out this morning that I didn’t make the show after all of that)!! I was hoping I would be able to tell you I made it and would be on NBC promoting Ocutech!! Oh well, I will try again.

My colleagues and I have been working with your telescopes over the past and have had great success with our low vision patients!

Once again, as I think about exciting developments in Low Vision prescribing over the past 20 years – one of the most exciting and memorable for me was the day I unpacked my Ocutech SPORT. The opportunities your new VES Sport opens up for our patients are truly remarkable. This week, I ordered two new VES Sports and another is awaiting a patient’s decision – and I just felt compelled to THANK YOU all for the magnificent work you do that allows us to improve the lives of persons afflicted with permanent vision loss. What a difference you make!!
What you provide us is so significant to our ability to accomplish our mission. I just wanted you to know how important you are to our success. Each time we meet the challenges our patients bring to us – each one of you at Ocutech are right there with us; it’s an honor to have you at our side.

I used my sightscope when I was taking my review for the real estate brokers licensure board exam. The exam was held last February 2016, and luckily I passed. 🙂

I’ve been very happy with the SightScope and patient acceptance is excellent. I also want to commend your team on customer service … it’s outstanding.

I have allowed several patients to experience the benefits of the Sport model. A particularly gifted patient, a world renowned psychologist, practitioner and educator was able to resume painting and piano–his retirement avocations. His wife was in tears as she spoke of the return of piano music to their home-especially during the holidays. You do change and enhance lives-Thank you.

My Ocutech bioptic has been such a great help to me at school when I was studying and now at work. I am working full-time as a Receptionist and I do a lot of clerical tasks that require me to read a lot and my device has been really a big help for me to do my job well. What I love the most in this device is that I don’t need to use a hand-held magnifier or any other device to aid my reading because my VES-Sport has a wonderful feature that allows me to read/see distant objects as well as nearby ones like when reading notes and using computers or gadgets.
