  Rules Of Magnification.     

 

  • The higher the power of the headband magnifier lens, the closer you must get to the object and the smaller the field of view.
  • As the power of a headband magnifier lens increases the diameter of the lens decreases.
  • Diopter is a term used to determine the power(magnification}of a lens. The terms power(X) Diopter(D) are sometimes confused.
  • High power magnifiers such 3X must be held steady or else they will be out of focus

 

Headband Magnifier Uses: Reading, crafts, hobbies, low vision, jewelry making and repair, machinists, tool and die makers, leather-crafting, woodcarving, woodworking, sewing, knitting, cross stitching, quilting, needlework, needle-crafts, electronic assembly, medical, dental applications.
