A Honey Bee telescope consists of three conventional Galilean telescopes placed side-by-side, offering a wider field of view than through other low vision telescopes. A 3x Honey Bee was verified and evaluated. The purpose of this study was to develop, construct, and evaluate a reading cap for the Honey Bee telescope. A +3 diopter reading cap was constructed utilizing three conventional caps which were modified with a hand edger. The completed unit was evaluated on an arc perimeter. The modified cap was found to be most useful for brief, isolated near point tasks.
