A locking diopter ring, focus lock, phase-corrected coatings, fully multicoated lenses and rubber armoring make these binoculars every bit the equal of many brands costing twice as much.
waterproof, phase-coated, center-focus roof prisms come with a click-stop diopter ring for worry-free field use.
The Eye-Q system, manufactured by WaveLight AG, corrects one diopter
of nearsightedness or farsightedness in just two seconds.
50 diopters, and I've found glasses (or a corrector lens) mandatory for all critical observing at low and medium powers - in fact, anytime the telescope's exit pupil is 1 millimeter or larger.
Unless your astigmatism is worse than about 3 diopters only medium and low powers will require correction, and then only if the eyepiece itself lacks the eye relief you need to wear glasses.
(D) of spherical equivalent myopia or myopia with astigmatism, with up to -7.
I wanted to do LASIK, but it wasn't an option for me because of my poor eyesight and the thinness of my cornea," said Chuck Thompson, a New York City lawyer whose prescription was a debilitating -15 diopters.
The Verisyse lens implant is approved for the treatment of nearsightedness for prescriptions as high as -20 diopters.
Schwiegerling estimates that an amateur astronomer whose dark-adapted pupils span 6 millimeters typically will experience a half diopter of night myopia, while the rare stargazer whose pupil can open up as wide as 8 mm may experience a 1 1/2-diopter effect--though both numbers vary widely within the human population.
Rick Fienberg and I both have added a full diopter of myopia correction to our nominal prescriptions, and we both find that this has driven our respective visual limits down by about a half magnitude while greatly enhancing our views of the Milky Way.
