Abstract : A micro-optical lens holder having a lens receiver moving able within a collar. The lens receiver has an indentation therein in which the lens is placed and a longitudinally extending passageway for allowing light to pass through the lens. The collar circumscribes the lens receiver in such a manner that when the lens receiver is positioned within the collar, the collar exerts a force on the lens receiver to securely maintain the lens within the lens receiver. Lens replacement only requires the extraction of the lens receiver from the collar in order to replace the lens within the lens receiver with a lens of a different size. (Patents).
