Magnifers Hand-held Magnifiers

Hand-held magnifiers are the one of the simplest type of magnifiers to use and are also the most familiar.  Nearly everyone has used a hand-held magnifier at some point in time.

The hand-held magnifier design involves a handle that is attached to a lens through which the user will view an object – whether it is text or        an image.  Because the user has the ability to adjust the distance between the lens and the object, hand-held magnifiers can be used to            easily compensate for slight differences in uncorrected nearsightedness or farsightedness.

Eschenbach offers a wide range of hand-held magnifiers from which to choose. We carry illuminated and non-illuminated hand-held magnifiers     with a variety of lens designs – including aspheric, aplanatic, biconvex, and the hi-tech diffractive lens. There are also options of available light     sources to consider when choosing a hand-held magnifier.  These include incandescent lighting or light emitting diodes (LEDs).

Eschenbach hand-held magnifiers are available in powers from 2x to 12.5x diopters. Due to the fact the user must support the weight of the         magnifier, hand-held magnifiers are ideal for short-term spotting tasks.  Short-term spotting tasks include reading a prescription bottle, a        menu, a phone number, a price tag, or even a thermostat.  Actually, any task where a near object will be viewed for a short period of time can  be assisted with the use of a hand-held magnifier.

When reading for longer periods of time, consider using a stand magnifier, magnifying spectacles, or a video magnifier
