Opera Glasses

General Properties of Opera Glasses

Opera glasses are specifically made for indoor use and observing the objects in theaters, opera houses and galleries.

They are simply made and usually don’t house a special optical technology which can cause slightly worse images and blurry edges but also makes them cheaper.

Opera glasses are compact and light enough to fit in your pockets or purse.

Prism types of Opera Glasses

  • Galilean prism design
  • Roof design

Opera Glasses with Galilean prism design

In some cases, opera glasses use Galilean prism design, meaning that they have a convex objective lens and a concave eyepiece which produces an upright image.

Because of this, opera glasses do not require prism and are therefore cheaper and more compact.

Opera Glasses with Roof Prism

Sometimes, however, Opera Glasses are equipped with roof type prisms which makes them a bit bigger and optically better.

Protection of Opera Glasses 

Because of their purpose of indoor use, most Opera Glasses are usually not waterproof and/or fog-proof

Focusing option on Opera Glasses

To compromise with image quality and a wider field of view, opera glasses do not offer zoom features and often have a fixed focusing option.

Buil-in Light in Opera Glasses

In some cases, Opera Glasses have integrated light that can be useful in low light situations. They come in many colors and designs to fully equip you with sophisticated opera companion.
