I love this magnifying glass! It’s great for me as well as for the 80-year-old for whom I purchased it.

With ten ultrabright LEDs, it boasts an extended 100,000-hour lifespan. What sets this magnifying glass apart from many on the market today is that it is rechargeable via USB; you can recharge in two hours! The lightweight and ergonomic handle makes it easy to move around. I recommend this magnifier for anyone who struggles to read the small print on menus, newspapers, etc, but particularly for seniors with low vision and macular degeneration.
