I am about to pension off my old reliable Optivisor which has
served me well for a number of years, I am looking at purchasing
Megaview pro with the led light.
Any users comments on this loupe would be appreciated, It would
appear to be a quality item.
I don’t know if they’ve improved the design any since I bought the
megaview (not the pro lighted one, which hadn’t been released yet)
some 4 years ago when John Frei first showed it to me at a SNAG
conference. But the lenses look the same to me. Those plastic tabs by
which the lenses snap into the frame to interchange lenses, broke
rather quickly for me. A rather expensive bit of scrap plastic in a
couple months. Maybe mine was a fluke, but the bit on the headband
into which the lenses were supposed to snap in, seemed so tight I’d
find it quite difficult to get a lens out to switch to another one.
That operation was where they all broke. I don’t think I’ll be
trading in my optivisors for another meagaview anytime soon.
Hopefully, given the cost of those things, my experience was a fluke,
but I’ve got no strong reason to test that hope.
