Special Optical Quarantine Finds

While most of us in the optical world is at home, we will all eventually be working again. When we do return it’s likely that we will need to wear masks for protection. We also know this pandemic is history in the making and may want some memorabilia. With all of that said, I’ve searched around for optical related items that are applicable to the times. Whilst searching I found a ton of items but many of them were from overseas or on backorder and took around 3 weeks just to get the order processed. The items in the list I’ve compiled should all ship in a reasonable amount of time as I’ve excluded the items that had a lengthy delay.
