Magnifying Glass for Reading Small Print

Updated on December 31, 2013

Do you know someone that is starting to do the "trombone slide" when they are trying to read the small print on items? Whether it is serial numbers or teeny tiny directions there are all sorts of small print out there that can be really difficult to read - especially after a certain age.

I am speaking from personal experience. It seemed like the day I turned forty I needed bifocals. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to get them yet. In the meantime I can close one eye and move the item away from me and see it pretty clearly.

Too bad that doesn't work for my husband. For the past year he has been getting out his huge flashlight trying to illuminate items so he can see them and then he hands them to me anyway. I decided it was time for him to have a magnifying glass to keep on his desk.

I love to shop online and I trust the collective wisdom of people that own the product. I found this magnifying glass and I was impressed with the reviews. It sounds like the perfect gift for my husband. He and I both love practical gifts!

I have to say that I am impressed at how well it works. He has already used it several times even though he has only had it a short time. The magnifying glass comes with an LED light in the handle. This helps light up the viewing area which makes it easier to see.

The magnifying glass is perfect for him to keep on his desk or carry around the house wherever he needs it. I'd like to get him a similar pocket sized one so he always has one handy.

This is a great inexpensive gift for yourself or someone you love.

I am tempted to try out this pocket sized magnifying glass. It is lighted, which is important to me, and it is a four star product on Amazon.

This was my second choice for a magnifying glass if the first one didn't work out.

The thing I like most about this one is that the LED lights go all the way around the glass. I can see that being a big advantage.

 

I hope my review helped you choose a magnifying glass. Have a great day!
