Magnifier Information 

Why you may need a hand held magnifier.

When you are having trouble viewing print or objects it may be time for a hand held magnifier.

After the age of about forty you will experience a problem viewing small print and tasks involving close detail work. This eye condition is called presbyopia and magnification is the answer. 

What is a hand held magnifier?  

A magnifying glass (called a lens in laboratory contexts) is a convex lens that is used to produce a magnified image of an object. The lens is usually mounted in a frame with a handle (see image). A magnifying glass can be used to focus light, such as to concentrate the sun's radiation to create a hot spot at the focus for fire starting. 

A magnifying glass is also helpful for vision impaired eye conditions such as: 

macular degeneration,




Hand held magnifiers are inexpensive, portable and will eliminate eye strain and their is large selection to choose from.  

Hand magnifiers are lightweight, compact and portable as compared to a hands free stand magnifier  


How does a magnifying glass work?

A magnifying glass is a lens through which can be used to make things appear bigger, so you can see them better. It is used in many applications and manual operations, e.g., for examining postage stamps in philately.

The magnifying glass consists of a piece of convex[ shaped glass or plastic. It has to be held at the right distance between the eye and the object for the object to be in focus. The magnifying glass usually comes with a handle. Wikipedia


What type magnifier is best? Hand held magnifiers are best for short duration use and a hands free magnifier with stand are best for long duration use.   

 Our large magnifier selection can help those with presbyopia and macular degeneration.

  • 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.
