HAUPPAUGE, NY- Meopta USA, a global leader in precision sports optics, introduces the new MeoCapTM flip-open binocular eyepiece covers. These innovative individual eyepiece covers protect vulnerable ocular lenses while hunting in rough terrain, hiking or attending a favorite sporting event and, when flipped open for use, shield eyes from peripheral light entering between the user’s eyes and the binocular. Those who have spent a lot of time glassing know how much light interference can diminish the viewing experience and, for those who wear eyeglasses, it can be even more uncomfortable.
“This accessory exemplifies the type of innovative solutions that drive our business at Meopta,” said Reinhard Seipp, general manager and COO of Meopta USA. “High-end optics manufacturers, including ourselves, spend millions on R&D trying to squeeze every last ounce of transmission through a binocular but too often all that effort is nullified in the field by stray light entering between the eyes and the ocular. This simple solution solves this problem and allows the user to enjoy the full benefit of our amazing glass.”
Meopta’s MeoCap eyepiece covers with LightFoil technology work with most full-size binoculars on the market today and open outward to form a barrier between the user’s eyes and any peripheral light trying to enter the eyecups. The result is an amazingly bright, clear, relaxing and distraction-free view.
MeoCap Key Features
- Tough ABS construction is durable and weatherproof. Simple hinge system contains no metal parts or springs to lose or break. Caps close securely for total lens protection.
- Flip-open covers improve the optical performance of any binocular by blocking peripheral light from entering between the user’s eyes and the eyecups.
- Makes viewing more comfortable by reducing eyestrain. Improves contrast by isolating your subject from outside light interference. Perfect for eyeglass wearers.
- Proprietary fit system uses unique radially aligned inserts to provide a positive grip onto the eyecup and can be changed to fit a wide variety of eyecup sizes.
- Sculpted, form-fitting design adds less than half a millimeter to the eyecup surface for no reduction in eye relief.

Hauppauge, New York – Meopta USA, a European and American based manufacturer of high-end sports optics for hunters, shooters and nature enthusiasts, founded in 1933, has been awarded the Outdoor Life magazine “Editor’s Choice” award. The new MeoStar® 10×42 HD binocular received the highest honor of “Editor’s Choice” against an elite field of competing binocular models from Swarovski, Leica, Zeiss and others.
“If status and brand are important to you, then plunk down $2,000 for a high-end European binocular. But if you want performance and durability on par with the best Austrian optics, then spend half that amount for this Czech powerhouse. The Meopta is that good,” stated Outdoor Life in an excerpt from the magazine test.
This year, Outdoor Life’s optics editor and a panel of hunters and optics experts assembled in Montana to evaluate the newest sports optics offerings for its annual gear test. Each entry is awarded an objective letter grade for overall optical quality, low-light capability, mechanical design and ergonomics in addition to rigorous scrutiny by the expert judges. Outdoor Life magazine presents its “Editor’s Choice” award to the optic with the highest overall score and Meopta’s newest binocular – the MeoStar® 10×42 HD – took top honors with four stars overall and A+ in optical performance.
The European built MeoStar® 10×42 HD is a rugged, full sized binocular featuring genuine fluoride objective lens elements. The fluoride elements eliminate chromatic aberration (CA) or color fringing by bringing light wavelengths into a tighter common focus along the optical axis delivering maximum resolution and vivid color fidelity. Proprietary MeoBright 5501 TM ion assisted lens coatings eliminate reflections and glare and deliver superior brightness and clarity. A comfortable ergonomic rubber armor surrounds its durable aluminum chassis while precision weather sealing and nitrogen purging keep the MeoStar® HD 100% waterproof and fogproof for life.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by Outdoor Life and to have our new MeoStar® 10×42 HD binocular selected as “Editor’s Choice” against some very distinguished brands,” said Meopta USA GM Reinhard Seipp. “This prestigious award serves as confirmation to the accomplishments of our sports optics development team, to the product and the Meopta brand.”
