{Applications / Quality}
Generally, these are for reading text on anything flat, e.g. a book, magazine or newspaper resting on a table; they are designed to rest 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).

Specifically, if you really have tried every other magnifier and are struggling, please do buy this one. Then, if it isn't suitable, return it within 14 days for refund, then visit your doctor or optician for advice on why reading magnifiers don't work for you.

Why is this in the 'clearance' section?

This the larger version of the famous hedgehog magnifier.. But there is a story here (true story).

These have lights. But they don't work. That's not terrible, most magnifiers don't have lights, but these are meant to have lights. I got them from the manufacturers, LHP in France. I tried contacting them by email and by telephone, we tried in English and in French, they didn't respond , and after a few weeks I gave up. Their magnifiers are good but they sell faulty goods and give no support. I will NEVER buy anything from LPH again.

On the 'plus' side is the special clearance price, £19.50 insead of £35.00.
