Hand Magnifiers

Professional grade hand magnifiers come in powers up to 20X.  Most are lighted and are easily carried in a pocket or purse.  Strengths of 4X to 10X are usually used by people with low vision.  As the power of a magnifier increases, the size of the lens decreases, so at powers greater than 8X they are usually only used for viewing limited amounts of print such as return addresses and price tags.
