The ‘bright field' optical design of this magnifier collects light from all around the 1 ⅛” thick loupe and directs it right onto the surface you are looking at. The beauty of this deceptively simple device is that it lies flat on the paper and you simply look through it. No focusing is necessary, and it can be comfortably viewed with both eyes from a wide range of angles and distances. And at 16 oz. it also makes an attractive paperweight.

  • Terrific for Archival Projects

    Mary Ellen Nottage, 1/2/2019 I first ran across this type of magnifier while I was doing archival research on hand-drawn cemetery maps. My newly retired husband is now deep into his own research on a favorite topic, reading page after page of mid-Nineteenth Century newspaper print and handwritten documents. When he mentioned how tired his eyes were, I remembered how much I liked using the domed magnifier in the archives. So I got him one from Garret Wade for Christmas - a great stocking stuffer! The larger format is a perfect aid for deciphering the materials he is using, and his eye fatigue is significantly diminished. He really appreciates the hands-free, distortion-free viewing it allows as opposed to other magnifiers he was using. He may even finish writing the book after all these years!!
  • Desk magnifying glass

    Desk magnifying glass, 12/9/2018 A unique gift for a desk. Good adult item.
  • Distortion free lens

    Ellen Soloway, 12/3/2018 An excellent product and beautiful to look at. The quality of the glass clear and produces a magnification without distortions. It sits on my desk as a pretty paperweight until I need to read fine print. I am amazed at how much easier it is to focus the print than my older hand-held magnifiers. Mainly I am pleased that my eyes are less tired due to the lack of distortion with this lens.
  • True Value in this Looking Glass

    Nicholas B Borer, 10/28/2018 I think the craftsmanship of this Desktop Magnifier is excellent. It was made by a true lens crafter. Its heft (weight) and ability to create clarity on small print, instantly , by simply setting it on a document or work piece are invaluable. Simple, effective, quality , and value all rolled into one !
  • Great for reading newspaper or food ads

    H.B., 5/4/2018 My husband said it works great
  • Not for regular lighting

    Mike Elledge, 4/27/2018 the lens is too dark (green). Only useful if a full light situation.
  • Keep on desktop for frequent use - I do.

    Ecat, 2/23/2018 This desk magnifier is a very solid item -- large enough for easy use (no moving it around to cover the object) and strong enough for bringing details into greater clarity. I think 3X is a sound choice, but buyers should not expect this magnifier to do the work of a higher-power professional item like a jeweler's loupe.
  • very great idea.

    Rick, 12/10/2017 at my age and difficulty reading quite small print this magnifier has been a blessing. Glasses don't help reading all the time, holding magnifiers is always a move it here and there project. Placing the magnifier on the page (esp. smaller notes) magnifies the area and then just move it "along" and it really does the job of easier magnified !! reading for me. I am quite pleased and happy I bought this magnifier! All is 'simpler' and easier to read.
