This is for 'medium distance' such as watching TV, especially for the partially-sighted. It can also be used for the far distance, e.g. theatre and sports events, very useful for those with normal sight who are seated a long way from the action. If you want one for close-up work (we have many models) click here.
Magnification: about 2X
Focus: each side focuses independently, so you can still use them even if each eye has a different prescription.
Accessories: sturdy cardboard box; lanyard (for hanging around the neck).
We always stress that if you have a problem with your eyes you must see an optician or eye doctor, if they say no magnifier will help your condition...then you have been forewarned.
This does not mean that a magnifier won't help, as shown by this email we received from a customer:
The TV lenses I ordered arrived safely, thank you.
I had an eye test, but was told there was no point in new lenses, but would need cataracts removed. The waiting list is long, unfortunately.
I tried the TV lenses this morning, and am delighted to report that I now can comfortably watch television from my usual chair! The optician did not recommend anything like your product.
