2½X magnification with a 90mm X 53mm (i.e. oblong) lens.
Very high quality, for the partially-sighted...or for anyone who simply wants the best quality.
Oblong magnifier with handle, preferred by many, because it's oblong - suitable for reading columns of text. Eschenbach boast that they make the most powerful magnifiers for the size, this one is 2½X and measures 3½ X 2 inches.
Look at the photo showing the view through the magnifier, the size of the text has not been enhanced ('photo-shopped'), this is exactly what you see through the lens.
