Another quality product from HS
I always go to HS first and did so when we got tired of using easily scratched cheap products. I use mine for deciphering medication and cosmetic labels. My husband has Parkinson's and needs his for everything. The large field of vision is perfect for his wobbly hands. Critiques: light could be brighter and doesn't cover full field of vision; needs a soft slip cover to protect the lens on desk top and in my purse.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I actually bought two of these to give as Christmas gifts, so I don't actually know how well they work yet. However, they look great. I shopped around for so many and either couldn't find them or what I found was so cheaply made. These appear to be of a higher quality.
from Southern Iowa
There are no downsides to this glass. It is not heavy despite its 5" diameter size.
I would buy this product again.

I found this product to be extremely useful to read any thing which is to hard to read with normal eye glass.
wide view lighted magnifier
By Bad eytes
from Redmond washington
I have macular degeneration and use this for reading the paper. It works, but could have stronger magnification.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Evansville, IN
Thought it would magnify so much more. I like the light. But it is a little heavy to use all the time.
Great, Clear, Lighted Magnifier
from NW Wisconsin
Finally threw out our old, cheap, scratched, hard-to-see-through magnifying glass and bought this one that is crystal clear. It's like having a set of brand new eyes that are able to read that very fine print! Amazing.
from Cleveland, Ohio
Helps to read newspapers, magazines or any small print. Unless the lighting is low you don't need the light.
Great gift idea

Works very well.Do not have to move magnifier around as much while reading due to large size.
