VES-II

The improved version of Ocutech’s original optical design, the VES-II, available in 3x and 4x powers, offers sharp, wide-field Keplerian optics, convenient focusing, and light weight. Its fully adjustable mechanical mounting system makes prescribing a high quality bioptic system quick, convenient and readjustable. Attached to Ocutech’s specially designed plastic eyeglass frames, this modular system allows the prescriber to independently assemble the system making it convenient and popular throughout the world. It is recommended for individuals with moderate vision loss of 20/200 or better.

Available in 3x and 4x powers, the VES-II was the first cosmetically appealing, expanded field telescope available. Now in its improved second version, the VES-II offers a wider field of view, brighter image and manual focusing ability from infinity to as close as 7 inches. Funded with grants by the NIH, it was preferred 3 to 1 over conventional telescope systems in independent clinical research studies. With many thousands in use worldwide, the VES systems have become a standard in high quality, compact, wide field telescopic systems. The VES-II is prescribed for the better seeing eye and can be adapted for just about any specific visual need. Its novel, re-adjustable mounting system makes future prescription changes easy and convenient.

The VES-II can also be prescribed in the lower “Bottom Mount” position.
