• An inexpensive optical device, an eyeglass loupe readily available commercially, can be used to improve the near and distance visual acuities of highly hypermetropic, aphakic patients. The device is simple to use and can replace the expensive, conspicuous telescopic system (Bioptic) of similar overall power.
