Magnifiers are handheld devices used to increase the magnification of objects greater than the human eye and are ideal for anyone doing detailed work. They are made with convex lenses that bend and converge at a focal point when light passes through. Magnifiers have been around for decades and have been improved with technological advances. Our range of magnifiers reflect the current magnifier types available on the market and have been sourced from leading brands such as: Coil, Eschenbach, Hozan, Mitutoyo, Molex, and RS PRO.
What is magnification?
If you need to see something small you can bring your eyes closer however the object will become blurred as the eye cannot focus on details close-up. Magnification from an eye magnifier for example enlarges objects or text to make things clearer and easier to see and can help reduce eye strain. It is also important to know what magnification strength is needed before you purchase one as there are many different types to suit all applications.
