This post is a little off the subject, but it has to do with
magnification at the bench.
If you already wear glasses, one of the best sources of
magnification at the bench is the Opticaid brand magnifier.
It attaches directly to your glasses.
The entire magnifier is made from clear poly carbonate, except for
the spring clips that attach it to the glasses, which are stainless
steel. It weighs less than 1 oz.
The nice thing about the clear plastic is that it doesn’t interfere
with your vision & is non distracting. The magnifier can be folded up
toward your forehead when not needed. When using them, if needed, you
can look over, under, & around them with no difficulty.
The stainless steel clips can be formed to work with many sizes of
glasses. It’s probably better to use them with a pair of glasses
with a full frame. I’m not sure what the clips would do to a
frameless lens… The Opticaids come in 6 magnifications from 1 1/2 X
to 3 1/2 X… They’re around $21.95 each. I got mine from Stuller.
Usual disclaimers, just a satisfied customer.
