Reviews

Works well. Infinitely better than using a magnifying glass
I bought these as I was finding it increasingly difficult to do close up work like soldering electronic components etc & I did not find that using a fixed magnifying glass was particularly helpful. They are lightweight, comfortable & completely solved the problem. I can now easily do the tasks that I was struggling with. The quality of the optics is not fantastic but good enough for what I need. The LED light is a useful additional feature & it is bright enough to help me to see what I'm working on more clearly. I've not had to use the lenses with the highest magnification as the two lower value ones are adequate for what I need, but I would imagine that they would be very useful if I ever had to work with really small items.
Great for craft and colouring
I bought these to help with my home crafts and they have turned out to be just fantastic. They are fairly light in weight so you don’t feel like you have something heavy on your head and the interchangeable lens are great...even if I did feel like Mr McGoo... The led light is fast to charge and adds extra light if you need it. This is a genuine review of a decent product at a decent price .
Solidly Built
I bought these for use when fly tying. There are 4 different lenses which are very easy to interchange and a two level LED light. I find that the lowest magnification x1.5 is ample for my needs. The depth of field reduces as the magnification increases so at the highest magnification 5x I find I have to get very close to the work. There is a strap supplied which goes around the back of your head. I find it useful as it helps prevent the glasses slipping. The LED light is ok but not as bright as I would like hence 4 stars instead of 5. Glad I bought them.

Reviews

Great quality magnifying glass.
I only received this magnifying glass today. I use a loupe normally to look at detail on old black & white photos. The loupe is OK but certainly has its limitations so decided to go for this glass. Feels like good quality in the hand and the glass is glass! Nice touch with the shift bag and glass cleaning cloth. I've uploaded a couple of photos to show the magnification and quality. I'm very pleased with this glass. Remember you'll need to get batteries for the built in light but it's fine under normal light conditions. Great value for money, think I paid £7.25 including delivery. Amazon service great as usual.
I was blind, but now I see, you made a chiropodist out of me.
Age has taken my eyesight and the local swimming pool has infested my child's feet with verrucas. My son wisely was reluctant to let his blind mother treat his feet. I couldn't hold his feet far away enough to focus and still reaching them to gouge out the incessant little parasites. Voila the solution, a magnifying glass. I can see the verrucas now, squatting in his feet! I tell you if he just keeps his feet still and lets me at them their days are numbered and mine as an unqualified chiropodist are started. If everything you try and focus on up close looks fuzzy, ill defined and simple tasks like threading a needle result in utter frustration this is the thing for you.
Great product, great price
I like that it does not feel cheap and is comfortable in your hand. The magnification is excellent and does not distort the print like so many others. we had recently purchased a scrabble dictionary containing over 750 pages but being only 8x11.5cm meant the print was almost illegible. This makes all the difference between squinting and being able to read at ease. If you need a cheap but well-built magnifying glass with LED lighting this is exactly what it is.

Great for painting miniatures/warhammer
These are really useful for painting miniatures, did my research first and it was either this or a mag lamp, tried the mag lamp to avoid looking like a mental case, I hated it and kept head butting it. This thing once you get used to knowing you’ll never be in fashion ever again if you step outside, is great for getting some good detail plus you can use it in any position which helps support your back with long painting sessions. On a side note I purchased a decent lamp to avoid loading this thing up with batteries as I figure it will reduce the load on my forehead. Yes, I said that.
I can SEE
Love it, love it, love it. I wear spectacles and I was able to use it with the arms but did find the nose bridge a bit uncomfortable, probably just sharing my nose with my own specs was just a bit too much! So I decided to switch to the head band and found this easily stayed on but it was hard on my forehead. However the delightful little storage bag that comes with it it is soft and I rolled it up and stuck it between the device and my forehead and bingo it's ideal. I didn't realise it had 5 different lenses to switch between. My embroidery has improved several notches now that I can see to do really small. I can even thread my needles now. This is great I love it the only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because it could be improved by a simple padded strip for the forehead and a more comfortable nose bridge. But still I love it, love it, love it.
Really, really useful for close up detail.
I rather rashly offered to paint some Warhammer figures for a friend but was struggling to see the detail with my aging eyeballs. Using a fixed magnifying glass was not really working for me so I thought I would give these a punt. I fitted the lens from the middle of the selection and they are ideal for my needs. You can use them with standard glasses arms, or swap for an elasticated strap. The lens holder works well but they don't suffer much in the way of being knocked before falling out. So far the lenses have remained scratch free and there is no noticeable distortion in the field of view. The nose bridge is adjustable and I find them comfortable enough for extended use up to a couple of hours. Really excellent product and value for money.
