MagniPros Magnifying Glass with Dual Power Lens
This magnifying glass might be the best gift I bought ever for my 84-year-old mom. She has vision problems due to macular degeneration and some other issues, and this handy magnifier was exactly what she needed! Frustrated by her aging eyes (and before we found this wonderful solution), she stopped reading for a while.
As books provide hours of entertainment and crystal clear reading which helps pass the time for her, I hated that she no longer could read comfortably. We especially love the full page view and flip out legs.
The led magnifier reduces eye strain because it magnifies up to 300% and provides light without glare.
Made out of optical grade acrylic, it is more lightweight, scratch-resistant, and shatterproof than glass, and provides great clarity.
Another bonus, the lens covers a large viewing area without the need to move your hands all the time which is helpful as her hands are weaker now than when younger. Powered by triple-A batteries, the LEDs are made to last more than 25,000 hours!
