  • The higher the power of the reading magnifier lens, the closer you must get to the object being viewed and the smaller the field of view.
  • As the power of a lens increases the diameter of the lens decreases.
  • Diopter is a term used to determine the power(magnification}of a lens.The terms are sometimes confused.
