Similarly to binoculars, a monocular came about shortly after the creation of a device known as a telescope. Modern day monoculars utilize both prisms and keplerian optics as their functioning principles. The principal distinction that sets apart these two devices lies in the picture that is created - monoculars provide a 2-d image, whereas binoculars create a 3-d picture. Monoculars are picked over their counterparts for two main reasons. The first one - it is required to have a light-weight compact optical tool. Even though modern-day technologies allow to create binoculars that are compact and light-weight, a monocular of the same magnifying rate is always at least two times smaller and therefore lighter. The second one - it is impossible to use binoculars in some situations. Sometimes the professional restrictions precondition the use of a monocular, however most frequently monoculars are utilized by people with poor sight on one of the eyes, or people without one eye at all. Monoculars, unfortunately, are not as diverse in their design as their counterparts, however we offer a vast range of optical tools that will suit your specific need.
