Large Reading Magnifier with Light. (loc-P)

Large Reading Magnifier with Light. (loc-P)

Ref: large-reader-L

Price: 15.00 Including VAT


Lens 100 X 50mm, magnification 3X, takes two Size A batteries (not supplied), weight including batteries 450g.

This is a Far-Eastern copy of a special magnifier for the partially-sighted. The originals are made by various European manufacturers and sell for between £60.00 and £80.00. The reason the European versions are so expensive is that they use very special distortion-free lenses. This one uses an ordinary lens. The light is bright, the lens is very large, the magnification is good, the lens even tilts so that you don't have to peer down into it, all good features. But the image is slightly distorted. That might not bother you (you might not even notice) but for me, as an optical dealer, that is a no-no!
