Description

The hands-free Eschenbach MaxTV Binocular Glasses are worn like eyeglasses, letting you concentrate on watching television, movies, live theater, or sporting events. With 2.1x magnification and a lens focus from 10 feet to infinity, these binoculars ensure a clear view of everything in your path. Each lens is separately adjustable, and both lenses are frosted to eliminate reflections. Eschenbach binoculars are flexible and lightweight for comfort and ease of use.

 

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 Eschenbach 1624-1 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!


Features include:

 

  • Galilean design offers a bright, wide field of view (20º) and 2.1x magnification
  • Individually focusable objective lenses to compensate for +/- 3D of spherical correction or allow for adjustment of focal length from 10’ to infinity

  • Attractive, modern, hi-tech frame.

My macular degeneration took a sharp turn for the worse after a head injury last summer. This resulted in my not being able to see the TV clearly... especially a problem in that I could not read Closed Captions anymore. Well I put these buggers on... and WOW... TV viewing is clear as a bell and I can see the captions perfect. Also, I was having problems seeing the expressions on the faces of friends as we visited in the living room... These glasses take care of that. I am also an avid bird watcher... Being able to look out the window and see the birds and chipmunks clearly in the feeder again--just makes my day !! And I can see the horses and other critters out in the fields. Last fall I couldn't really appreciate Fall Foliage. . . I'll be ready for it this year. Before buying these glasses I did a considerable amount of research to find the best price. These folks at Binoculars.com were as much as $50 cheaper than other sites for the exact same product. [...] Bottom line --- If you have Macular Degeneration, don't hesitate to order these glasses. You will be very happy -- They will improve your vision dramatically and will TAKE A BIG BITE out of your Macular Degeneration.

I have low vision. I was sick and tiered of not being able to read screen in the lecture room , although I seet in the first roll. I was tired enough to asking people to what it is that shown on the crean in order to check my flight status at air port. But the moment I knew about this Max Glass, it was excited to have it and try it on.
Unfortunately, my vision is so bad that I still can't read things on the screan or TV.
But now I can see certian objects at far distance.
I think it will work fine for people who has better vision than I am.

      Comments about Eschenbach MaxTV Binocular Glasses - Hands Free Binocular Glasses:

      For several reasons, we returned these glasses. First off, you cannot wear your prescription glasses with them, so they can't compensate for that lack. Therefore, I couldn't focus them enough. I have compound astigmatism, so maybe, if I'd had contact lenses, they would have worked better. But, even if they worked, they are cumbersome and too heavy and with the weight at the front, they keep sliding down your nose and won't stay in place. I would have had to hold them onto my face. I don't have a small nose or small face. My wife tried them, didn't work for her either. We were disappointed. The return process is easy though, thank goodness.

              I use MaxTV glasses to watch TV. I sit about 6 feet away from a 40 inch flat TV. I am able to read a closed caption on it. I feel so good that I can enjoy the TV very much thanks for that wonderful product. Only negative side I have on it is you have to be very careful to wear them. They are a little bit fragile.

                  I have macular degeneration (no center vision) and could use a product with sharper focus, hawever, I have not found another product that works as well as Max TV. I plan to purchase replacements as required.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The entire purchase and delivery process was excellent. I recieved what was ordered in good condition and was received earlier than expected.

                        I bought these for my Dad in the hopes they would help his vision somewhat. I guess I expected a miracle from them, because he has such bad vision. However, they didn't help him. I tried the glasses on, as well. I found that they do magnify and focus well. I do believe they would be good for concerts, events, or bird watching. They are like using a pair of binoculars except you don't have to hold them up to your face; you get to wear them.
