The Reading Cap Ring gives patients a customized solution.

Reading cap ring for telescope

Eschenbach's wide-angle monocular 2X Galilean Telescope can now incorporate customizable reading cap lenses with its new Reading Cap Ring. If you want to view objects close up through the telescope with a near prescription, just snap on the Ring (#1623-01). It's designed to hold a customized near prescription lens (34 mm in diameter) that, when lowered over the telescope, allows you to view near objects. Just flip the lens out of the way when viewing distant objects.
