{Applications / Quality}
Generally, readers are for reading text. That includes books, magazines and newspapers; maps and plans. Designed for resting on the page, to save you the effort of holding it above the text (which is very tiring if you're reading an entire book). Also good for the 'small print' on forms or the ingredients on food packets - providing it's not TOO small (or your close sight isn't VERY bad). It comes with a built in light, for extra clarity.

Specifically, a bright clear magnifier for the partially-sighted, so easy to 'glide' over the page, unusual in that it's so easy to switch on and off, there's no button or switch, must press anywhere on the top or rim of the magnifier.
You will also notice the dramatic price difference between this and the German-made magnifiers. That is because a) we import these directly and b) the Chinese are catching up on the Germans when it comes to quality!

ALTERNATIVES FOR READING, ESPECIALLY FOR THE PARTIALLY-SIGHTED.
A linen tester folds flat, opens into a square, usually for examining linen, stamps, coins etch, though there are a couple of very large models that would be suitable for reading; the small stand magnifiers are mostly very powerful high quality lenses for stamps, postcards, coins etc, though there are some larger models suitable for reading; The large stand magnifiers tend to be bench magnifiers for engineers, for working under, these ARE suitable for reading but are 'over-the-top' - I have showed them to a few partially-sighted people and they have all said, "It's HUGE! I can't use that!!".
