Product Questions

What is the largest handheld magnifying glass that you stock?

The largest magnifiers that we have in store are the Carson SG14 and the Carson HU20.

 

What magnifier is best for sewing or crafts?

We recommend the Carson Magnifree Series and the Magnishine, these have a convenient neck cord which means you can use them hands free.

 

What magnifier is best for someone with Macular Degeneration?

People with extreme low vision really need to go with an electronic magnifier, this is because when you go electronic you can have both a high magnification as well as a larger viewing area, and this cannot be accomplished with standard optical lenses.

 

I need a large lens and a large magnification, what do you recommend?

The general rule with a magnifying glass is the larger the lens the smaller the magnification has to be. This cannot be avoided unless you go for an electronic magnifier.

 

What magnifier is best for reading?

For general reading the best type would be our page magnifier and our book mark magnifier, both of these are great for reading.
