{SUMMARY}

Fixed-lens surgeon's-type binocular magnifier, the lenses are 'little telescopes' which means that you can get decent magnification and a long working distance, something that simply isn't possible with simple lenses

Click here to see a fascinating article about how magnification works.

Magnification: 2.5X
Working distance: 35cm.

The optical quality is very nearly as good as the 'professional' type we sell for between £149.00 and £290.00, but the construction is very simple, that is why it's so incredibly cheap for a magnifier of this quality.

{PROS AND CONS}

PROS

For optical quality you are getting something truly amazing for the price.

It's very lightweight (just 50g) and fits comfortably like spectacles, no headband necessary.

The lenses are fixed, you don't have to spend several minutes adjusting them for your eyes the first time you use them.

Includes a carrying case.

CONS

The lenses are fixed, you don't have to spend several minutes adjusting them for your eyes...but if they do not line up with your eyes (e.g. your eyes are closer together or further apart than most humans) then they simply will not work for you - you will have to return them to us (within 14 days) for refund or an alternative item.

The lenses are fixed, you don't have to spend several minute's adjusting them for your eyes...but that also means that if you drop / twist / bend them, they will go out of alignment and, because they are not adjustable, they will be beyond repair. Obviously, this isn't a problem if you are very careful with them.

To make them suitable for most humans, they've kept the magnification low - no other magnifications are available.

The lens caps fall off.
