Eschenbach Optik of America, Inc. was founded in 1983 as the North American subsidiary of Eschenbach Optik GmbH of Nuremberg, Germany (www.eschenbach-optik.com), a company that was established in 1913 and is the world leader in the manufacture and distribution of high quality magnification solutions including low vision aids, reading glasses and binoculars.
Eschenbach offers these 3 product groups to channel partners who then provide the products to consumers. The company focuses most of its efforts on helping the channel partners that carry the low vision aid and reading glasses products so that they can help their end-users. These partners include eye care and vision rehabilitation professionals who care for those with vision loss due to to macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases and vision problems. Eschenbach helps these professionals help their patients and clients by providing diagnostic tools, training and support so that successful outcomes can be obtained with the magnification devices they deem most appropriate for the visually impaired people for whom they care.

The new 1511 Mobilux series of illuminated hand-held magnifiers features LED illumination with many new benefits! SMD LED (light emitting diode) illumination provides an alternative light source preferred by many patients due to its distinctly whiter spectrum and longer useful life. In addition to the bulbs offering nearly unlimited life (50,000 hours!), the batteries last 5 times as long as when used with incandescent bulbs! These features provide lower usage costs and make the magnifiers even easier to use!
To soften the color of the light small yellow filters are included which can be snapped-on over the LED bulbs to provide an illumination option.
Why settle for just extra magnification when choosing readers for your presbyopic patients. Now you can have an additional feature that will light their way!
For those presbyopes who require readers when performing near tasks in dark or dimly lit environments, Eschenbach’s new LightSpecs provide magnification as well as bright LED illumination. Due to these 2 features, LightSpecs can help prevent eye fatigue and help users focus on near objects more easily and for longer periods of time, thereby increasing patient satisfaction and compliance.
LightSpecs are ideal for reading menus in dimly lit restaurants or for reading books, magazines or other material while away or at home.In fact, because the LED lights are so focused on the object being viewed, users don’t have to worry about disturbing others in the room, so they are perfect for use while reading in bed.
LightSpecs are available in 2 unisex frame styles (Liberty and Lindy) and seven different strengths (+1.50D, +2.00D, +2.50D, +3.00D, +3.50D, +4.00D, and +5.00D).

An LED Bright Field Magnifier that minimizes eyestrain & fatigue!
Patients that are visually impaired often complain that the combination of small print and poor illumination frequently cause fatigue while reading.
The new Makrolux combines the following essential elements that help address this problem:
1) magnification, 2) illumination and 3) easy orientation. The 2.2x magnification provided by the Makrolux is distortion-free from edge to edge, and it is uniformly illuminated by a bright LED. Plus, the large 90x30mm viewing area is rectangular in shape making it easy to navigate across lines of text. All of these features allow the Makrolux to provide users with the ability to read comfortably for long periods of time!
Whether reading the newspaper or magazine articles, scanning the stock market figures, or proofing accounting tables, the Makrolux will provide ideal reading light on every desk.
The forward tilted angled lens supports a comfortable reading position, and the width of the reading area covers the column width of many newspapers and magazines. Plus, ridges on the bottom keep the lens 1mm off the reading surface to prevent scratches.
Eschenbach's Makrolux magnifiers combine magnification and bright illumination with a unique easy orientation designed to reduce neck strain and fatigue while reading.
The new 3.6x Makrolux provides distortion-free, edge to edge clarity through a large (90x30mm) rectangular viewing area, making it easy to navigate across lines of text found in newspapers and magazines.
The lens is tilted at an angle to make the magnifiers ergonomic, thereby producing a more comfortable reading experience, especially for long periods of time! Plus, the ridges on the bottom of the model keep the lens 1mm off the reading surface to prevent the lens from scratching.
Do your patients have trouble reading books, newspapers, the print on computer screens, labels on medicine bottles, ingredients on food packages, train schedules, recipes, menus in restaurants, or their mail?
These hands-free, head-mounted glasses provide 2x magnification and can be adjusted so that each eye lens can be focused separately [±3 diopters], making the system adaptable to most patients. The glasses will focus on near objects with working distances of 16 inches and are perfect for any near viewing activity where a magnified image is helpful.
Designed for patients who have a refractive error AND want the convenience of an off- the-shelf, near, telescopic system, the MaxDetail Clip allows both needs to be met. With its unique clip-on design, the MaxDetail Clip includes most of the same features of the popular MaxDetail: 2x magnification, hands-free design, large working distance, and wide field of view.
In addition, its clip-on design permits patients to integrate their correction with these features so a clear, magnified image is achieved. Unlike the MaxDetail, there are no dials to focus to adjust for spherical correction!
The MaxDetail Clip has a number of features that maximize its usefulness. First, there are 5 vertical lens heights from which to choose to assure correct pupil alignment. Second, the convenient hinged clip mechanism allows the lenses to be flipped up, and out of the way, when not needed or not in use. And third, the MaxDetail Clip is equipped with rubber-covered jaws to prevent the clip from scratching patient's eyewear.
Best of all, the MaxDetail Clip provides the most valued benefit of a near, Galilean telescopic system; that is, a long working distance. Comparably powered spectacle solutions provide only about a 5-inch working distance, whereas the MaxDetail Clip provides a full 16-inch working distance, about 3 times the distance! Your patients can now hold their reading materials, or other near objects, at a 16-inch distance and still get 2x magnification!
Maximize the size of TV screens with the easiest-to-fit, binocular, telescopic distance system ever introduced - MAXTV glasses!
These hands-free, head-mounted glasses provide 2.1x magnification AND can be adjusted so that each eye lens can be focused separately [±3 diopters], making the system adaptable to most patients!
The glasses will focus on objects from distances of 3 m [10 feet] to infinity, and are perfect for watching TV, sporting events, movies, theatre, bird watching, or any other distance viewing activity in which a magnified image would be helpful.
With flexible temples, the 1624-11 MAXTV telescopic glasses are the most comfortable television viewing device ever. Don't let your patients rush out and spend thousands on a large screen TV - try the MAXTV first!
The MaxTV Clip is a convenient 2x clip-on telescopic system that attaches to eyewear and magnifies objects (for example, a TV) that are approximately 10 feet away.
To use the MaxTV Clip, squeeze the clip to separate the prongs and then attach the product to the bridge of the eyewear and release the clip.
The MaxTV Clip has protective rubber covers over the prongs so the Clip won't scratch the lenses of the user's eyewear. The rubber covers also prevent the MaxTV Clip from slipping off the eyewear or from moving out of alignment. In addition, the backside of the ocular lenses have a thin foam strip to avoid scratching the lenses of the eyewear. And, when magnification is not needed, or the user wants to focus on close-up text or objects, the MaxTV Clip can be flipped up and out of the way - there is no need to constantly remove and reattach it!
To ensure the optimal line of sight that maximizes the user's field of view is gained, the lens assembly can be placed on 1 of 5 different vertical positions to achieve the appropriate and most suitable height.
The MenasZoom is a revolutionary stand magnifier that literally lets you turn up the magnification!
By simply twisting the top of the MenasZoom, the magnification will increase from 2.2x up to 3.4x allowing users to select the magnification that is best for them to view images or text.
If the user needs to switch to smaller or larger sized text, they can easily change the magnification with a simple twist of the top of the device. This is ideal for patients who need different magnifications to read a newspaper or magazine where the headlines, standard text and stock pages or sports scores are printed in different sized fonts. With the MenasZoom, they can use one device to read multiple sizes of text!
The key to the MenasZoom's ability to provide variable magnification is its unique meniscus / aspheric lens design. This design not only allows the magnification to be changed, but also combines the benefits of a bright field and hand-held magnifier: a comfortable eye-to-lens viewing distance at a higher magnification.
