Quality of Life


I have had my telescopic lenses for about a month. I am learning to drive with them now, and didn’t know what I was missing.  My distance vision is much improved and I hope to be driving at night soon of the first time in my life.

Another benefit I have found happened when I wore them in my yard. I live in the country and can now enjoy watching my horse even when they are in the back pasture.   I can also see my neighbors when they wave.  What a difference they make in the quality of my life.

Highly Recommend


These glasses made all the difference in my life. Thank you. I am very well satisfied with my new glasses.  The reading glasses helped me a lot. The binocular glasses are the very best, I use them constantly while watching TV and they are excellent at church and stage show. I highly recommend them for anyone with macular degeneration

Driving With Confidence


Oh my, they are so clear. Wow. I love them. My quality of life has certainly been improved as the telescopic lenses Dr. Pino designed for me have allowed me to drive with more confidence, and the special lenses allow me to see the television better making it more enjoyable

Happy Camper


I cannot stress how thankful I am for Dr. John Pino. I had lost all hope of ever driving again due to my vision condition, macular degeneration. No one seemed to be able to help me until I went to see Dr. Pino. He prescribed a bioptic telescope for me to use for driving, seeing faces, and other distance objects like signs and traffic lights. Now I am using a bioptic telescope to drive. I passed my driving test and I am one happy camper.

Thanks Dr. Pino


I am driving now for the first time in my life at 38 yrs old, thanks to Dr. Pino.
I have Stargardts disease and was told I would never drive. Dr. Pino prescribed bioptic telescope glasses that enable me to drive legally in most states. Thank you Dr. Pino. You have changed my life.

My prayers were answered


I was told nothing could be done to improve my vision. I became depressed.
I went to see Dr. Pino hoping he could help me. My prayers were answered.
Now I can watch TV and read so much better. My quality of life is greatly improved.

I can drive again!


Thank you Dr. Pino for giving me my independence back. Now that I can drive again with bioptic telescopes, and read with my low vision glasses, I am so much happier.
