Flat plastic Fresnel lens. This flexible magnifier is 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" and only about a millimeter thick. It is great when you need to scan a list or to look for something in a directory. You can see most of the page without moving the magnifier. Only about 1.5 power, but that can make a huge visual difference. The quality is not high, but neither is the price.
Forget watchmaking, you could write the "A Tale of Two Cities" on a piece of tortellini with this triple magnifier visor. Magnifies from 1.8X to 4.8X. Has a permanent 2.2X lens, a flip-down lens, and a flip-down loupe. Separate white LEDs at each temple, powered by (2) "AAA"s each which aren't included. The whole thing is in a black plastic visor, 7-3/4" wide x 5-1/4" deep with a flexible plastic strap held by a hook-and-loop closure. Opens to 9" max dia and has coated acrylic lenses. Now then: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….
A nice 3X loupe, 2-3/8" dia, that folds into its own 3-3/8" x 2-5/8" tear-drop-shaped plastic case, and it's only 5/8" thick, just right for sliding into your pocket. Pay no attention the "6X" markings on the package-if mistakes didn't happen, we wouldn't be in business.
Designed for watchmakers, this aluminum loupe with a 1" dia, 10x glass lens snugs to your eye, but leaves your hands free, thanks to the flexible 15" headband that encircles your head. It has a 1-1/2" working distance, and would come in handy, too, if you poke around in needlepoint or manipulate anything miniature.
It is too a word. But never mind, this is a honey of an LED-illuminated, 8X magnifier with a 7/8" dia lens (ignore the 1-1/4" on the box) with an adjustable focus and a 10mm reticle marked in 1/10mm increments. Measures 1-13/16" tall x 2-7/16" wide OA with a 1-9/16" dia lens housing. Powered by (3) replaceable, and included, button-cell batteries.
This glass-lens 2X magnifier is a full 4" wide x 2" (wider than a column of newsprint) with a padded easy-to-grip 4" long handle at the bottom right corner, angled to the right. Slide the orange tab up and a pair of bright white LEDs illuminate the subject. You add (3) "AAA" batteries. The glass lens means it's much harder to scratch than plastic, so you can actually clean it with regular tissue or a handkerchief.
A good size for keeping on the coffee table or desk, and with a felt-covered bottom so it won't scratch the furniture, this folding loupe measures 2-1/2" dia in a bright-brass-plated case that's 2-7/8" dia x 11/16" thick when closed. Magnifies to approx 4X. You're gonna love it!
Low-profile reading glasses with small 1-3/4" x 3/4" lenses. The frames are all the same delicate style, but may be gold, silver, bronze or black, to match the slim, plastic carrying case with the pocket clip. The plastic lenses are 1X, 1.25X, 1.5X, 1.75X, 2X, 2.5X, 3X. Our package of (3) pairs will be in assorted magnifications (our choice). Note the incredible price -- these sell for up to $12.95 EACH at your local pharmacy!
Well, okay, glass, because rubber is hard to see through, but the handle and frame are covered in black rubber. Approx 2" square lens magnifies to 4X. Has a 4-3/4" handle and a frame with (5) white LEDs and (1) UV LED on the business side, the better to see that tiny print, or to check out money, stamps, insects, etc. You add a pair of "AAA" batteries.
