Spectacle Miniature Telescopes (SMTs) are mini-telescopes built into glasses. SMTs allow the patient’s prescription to be incorporated inside telescope as well as into the eyeglass lens. The telescopes can be prescribed for one or both eyes depending the level of vision and the patient’s goals.

Reading SMTs are beneficial for reading, seeing the computer, cards, and crafts.

Full-diameter SMTs are used for reading, television and seeing faces.

Bioptic SMTs are best used for driving, walking, theater, museums, and scenery.
