  • glass's wearers can eliminate the need for mag lite paid $9.99 at hobby Lobby

    Clip on mag lens have enabled me to remove the large mag lit completely,they work great with my trifocals ,I found the tip in back tips ,I never knew they made in clip on version ,I always got reflected ,which did a number on my eyes after a litttle while ,and almost a head ache .These don't and allow a clean table top giving unlimited use of you hand w/o the mag.lite in the way,sorry I can't credit poster of this fine tip ,But Thanks great tip ,he even posted the source for them! I payed $9.99 at Hobby lobby for mine .major improvement.Thanks again

    I believe I was the one who suggested the clip on magnifiers. I'm glad they help.

    I still have the mag light, but I use it to get better lighting close to the work surface.

          No worries Carl. The clip on magnifiers are one of the best tools for those who wear glasses and I'm surprised they aren't recommended more often.

          I would suggest getting in the habit of always putting them in the same safe place when you take them off. Before I started doing that, I've set them down and couldn't find them when I came back a couple of times.

            I bought a pair at AC Moore Sunday. There are great, no more reading glasses in front of my regular glasses.

                Got mine and have been using them for two days now. WHAT A DIFFERENCE they make with my trifocals. Only two problems with them 1)have to remember to flip them up when I move around cause they make the floor/ground appear closer than it really is. 2) took so long to find out about these.
                Got them at Hobby Lobby with 40% off coupon. Also noticed they are available at Amazon, Walmart, etc. This link shows picture of them.
