  • Can be combined with the ErgoAdapter and an Optical Wedge for greatly enhanced workstation flexibility
microscope positioners adapters 5

Extended Eyetube Binocular is an ergonomic device for use with quality stereomicroscopes. Its longer-than-standard eyetube length enables the microscope user to comfortably move back from the workstation, helping to relieve postural fatigue. Ideal for most microscopes, especially those used with machines, bonders, heated stages, solder stations, under hoods or anywhere operators are otherwise forced into a cramped viewing posture.

Optical Wedge

  • Easily installed due to self-aligning flanges
  • Offers a 0º or 90º in-line viewing angle
  • Maintains parfocality and optical alignments at any inclination angle
microscope positioners adapters 6

Adds new flexibility to microscope workstations. 0º/90º Optical Wedge is positioned between the binocular head and the optics carrier. It complements existing 45º binoculars, providing two additional viewing angles.
Costs less than half of a straight tube binocular and offers three times the flexibility.

Vision Engineering's ISIS microscope eyepieces are patented 'Expanded-Pupil' eyepieces designed to replace the conventional eyepieces of well known, other brand instruments. ISIS increases radial and axial head freedom by at least 8 times that of conventional eyepieces and greatly improves the visibility of optical information across the entire field. A unique eye distance of 38mm allows glasses to be worn in complete comfort, with common weaknesses (long and short sight astigmatism) no longer affecting user efficiency. Designed to fit most microscopes with standard diameter eyepiece tubes (23mm or 30mm) and can be used with many microscopes, including Kyowa, Leica, Meiji, Motic, Nikon, Olympus, Wild, Zeiss.
