You'll Be Able To See Itty-Bitty Doohickeys!
You just know you're getting old when you get your eyes examined by an optometrist and bi-focals are suggested. Worse than that, they prescribe regular glasses for distance, and separate glasses to use while woking on your computer. I was able to deal with the glasses, but the most painful hardship for me was losing the ability to read tiny print. Making sight of itty-bitty doohickeys has become impossible!
I've used magnifying glasses in the past, but they never had an LED feature, or did they pivot into a folding stand. It seems like my older magnifying glasses just disappear! Where do they go and who takes them? A couple of weeks ago I ordered a new magnifying glass from MagniViz. This unit sits in a designated place on my desk in my home office. I made an dinner announcemount about my new magnifying glass. I told the family that this new gadget is off limits to everybody!
MagniViz did a great job designing this magnifying glass. The 3x lens is strong enough to read tiny print and I can now see itty-bitty doohickeys! The two LED light compliments the magnification just fine. Since receiving the MagniViz, I've lost count on how many times I put it to use. No more squinting for me. I just pick up my MagniViz and poof, I can easily see everything that I was able to see when I was 20!

A great product for someone who needs well lighted
I purchased this for my mother who has macular degeneration so she would have a hands free magnification to adjust the volume on her hearing
aids. She loves the fact that it has a light as well as this makes working on her hearing aids much easier. A great product for someone who
needs well lighted, hands free magnification to work on small things. She is really happy with it and has found many other ways that it helps make her life easier.

Handy dandy hand held or hands free magnifier
By J. Riley
I like this magnifying glass a lot, but 2 things keep me from loving it unconditionally. It's very handy, the light and built in stand are very helpful for my use, which is examining full-sheet handwritten documents. Figuring out how to open out the stand was not intuitive at all, but it came with instructions that worked fine. The magnifying glass works well except for 2 things. 1) the distance between the stand up base and the viewing area is so small that you can't slide a page there for viewing. I don't know what the manufacturer could do to change that without creating an entirely different magnifier, and handheld works fine for full sheets. So, that's just a comment, not a criticism. 2) as a previous reviewer stated, normal handling of the device to turn the light on / off makes the battery cover pop off - that's really annoying and should be fixable by the manufacturer. Overall, though, this is a great little magnifier to carry around. Oh - one more thing: I wish it had come with a carrying case. Right now I'm carrying it around in its original box to protect the glass.
