About 3X magnification. 0.4mm thick, and exactly the size of a credit card.

The 'lenses' are cut into the plastic as micro-grooves (very clever), as invented by Augustin-Jean Fresnel (pronounced "Fren-nel") in about 1818, and originally used as the 'magnifiers' around the lights of lighthouses. To use a Fresnel magnifier you must hold it a few inches above the object, they do not work by resting on top of the object.

{Applications / Quality}
Generally, these are flat (well, not 100% two-dimensional, but very thin), the thinnest can be cut with a modelling knife if you want to make it smaller; they can fit into credit card holder or be used as a book mark.

Specifically, this is the smallest and neatest in that it is exactly the size of a credit card and will fit into your credit card holder or wallet, so you will never be without a magnifier. Unless you go out without your credit card holder or wallet. You can also make a cardboard 'stand' to mount it over a mobile phone display or small sat-nav.

Conventional reading magnifiers with handles are better in optical quality click here. And small (pocket-size) general purpose folding magnifiers are more powerful. click here.
